BPM Skills in 2017 – Hot or Not

It’s Not Your Daddy’s BPM.

Some of the things we were traditionally doing as BPM practitioners are no longer seen as important. New trends are emerging. Hype level is very high.

Do you want to know which BPM skills will be really useful in 2017?

I do 🙂

To help you focus on relevant things and skip things that will not give results this year I asked some of the best BPM experts in the world two questions:


1. What are the skills and techniques that can help BPM practitioners create value for their organizations in 2017?

2. Which skills are no longer relevant or not practically applicable yet (hype)

BPM Eastern Europe 2015

BPM Eastern Europe 2015

As you know from my previous posts we (BPMN Model Interchange Working Group) had a chance to make a live demo of the BPMN interchange.

The demo session was very successful and in less than a half of hour participants of the demo could learn more about the BPMN MIWG (from Simon who did the introduction and coordinated our session) and see how a BPMN diagram moves between the “business tools” which change the model (this time Falko started with bpmn.io, I took over with ADONIS and Simon did the last changes with Trisotech) to the execution engines.

This time we had 3 execution engines: W4 (presented by François), Camunda (Falko), and Omny Link (by Tim). As the model was directly transferred to execution with no time for adding technical attributes, there was no room for errors. And there were none – everything went smoothly, proving that BPMN interoperability is possible among the tools from BPMN Champions League (term coined by Falko in his post about the event).

Apart from the BPMN MIWG demonstration there were many other interesting sessions during the online summit covering topics like BPM of Things, creating living process applications, digital transformation, digital business (yes – digital was popular topic…), DMN and operational excellence. I also had a chance to present few tips for building the process architecture.

To my surprise my blog (BPM Tips) received the award of “Best BPM promoter in Eastern Europe 2015”.
