Podcasts for process management professionals [2023 edition]

Podcasts for process management professionals [2023 edition]

One of the goals of this blog is to share with you actionable tips that may help you in your business process management activities.

This year I plan to spend more time preparing new content for you. Expect more posts on this blog and on my new Substack (https://processmodeling.substack.com/), as well as new online courses. More details coming soon!

In case you are wondering – some of the popular series from past years will be continued, but in a slightly different form as I want to experiment a bit with new ideas.

What’s your source of BPM inspiration?

One of the best ways to stay sharp and grow professionally is to learn from others. I personally enjoy learning both from BPM thought leaders and from fellow process professionals. Ideally those should be people with different experiences and perspectives (not only from “my bubble”), so that I can question my thinking and get some new ideas.

Podcasts can be a great source inspiration for people interested in business processes. Since there were huge changes since my last post about BPM podcasts I thought you may enjoy an update.


Podcasts for process management professionals (2023)

List below contains podcasts which cover the topic of process management, which have over 10 episodes overall, with at least one episode from 2023. You will find there a tagline of a podcast, few words from me about podcast and its host, number of episodes and my suggestion from which episode you can begin to get a taste of what to expect.

BPM Skills in 2020 – Hot or Not (part 1)

January is often time when we come up with resolutions for a new year. While it is easy to decide that we want to change something, change will not happen unless we start doing something differently.

Start 2020 strong with knowledge about Fundamentals of BPM

Every year is a chance to learn (and use in practice) something new. I believe in learning from the best – this is why on this blog you can find world-class BPM experts sharing their knowledge with you 🙂

I think that one of the best sources of knowledge about Business Process Management is the “Fundamentals of BPM” book along with the MOOC courses based on it.

You may recall from my post “Back to school 2019: free online courses for BPM professionals” that while awesome MOOC course “Fundamentals of BPM” (run till 2017 by QUT) is not available anymore in an interactive form, video recordings are available.

Professor Marcello La Rosa kindly allowed me to present them in a form more convenient than the original PDF (available on http://fundamentals-of-bpm.org/mooc/).

Below you can find links to pages with videos.
