The fine folks at IQPC are taking a different tack in a forthcoming Business Process Management Summit being held in Las Vegas later this year.
The BPM community is clearly waking up to the notion that the business side of BPM – something I like to rant about – is pretty important. They have an excellent lineup of sessions, including an ARIS master class where simulation runs and results will be discussed. The emphasis, however, seems to be a refreshing shift to the “softer” aspects of BPM, with sessions on business process change, business process ownership, building a business case for BPM and aligning process innovations with business objectives – all music to my ears. They also have a fine group of speakers, including Bennu Group’s Terry Schurter and others from JP Morgan Chase, Liberty Mutual, Microsoft, NASA, Intel, Wachovia, Harley Davidson, Boeing and Merck. Definitely worth checking out. The event is being held at the Venetian Resort Hotel October 27 – 30th. Visit here for more information. (I understand they’re even offering a $500 discount if you register before August 1.)
