Phil Gilbert: The Next Ten Years of BPM

No, Phil Gilbert all by himself isn’t the second decade of BPM.  But he wrote a blog post yesterday that certainly paints a great vision for the road ahead.  Phil has a great “voice” in his writing and speaking, motivates his topics really well, and I like the fact that he really thinks “big”.  No small dreams for this BPM company!

You could sum up his call-to-arms in three words:

  1. Communicate (or, alternately: Collaborate)
  2. Automate
  3. Educate

And then he goes on to point out how Blueprint addresses point #1 (although it is a bit of oversimplification because there are communication/collaboration features in Teamworks 7 as well, but the point is that Blueprint’s “reason for existance” is all about communication, collaboration, and consensus, whereas Teamworks’ bread-n-butter is automation/execution).  And then how Teamworks 7 addresses point #2, Automation, with a set of new capabilities and designs.  And finally, attempt to address the lack of available BPM talent with Lombardi University (#3: Educate).

Its a good read, and as with some of his other missives, it will no doubt affect how people think about BPM in the future.
