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.

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.

Even brightest idea does not transform into results without:

BPM Skills in 2018 – Hot or Not

Each year is a chance to make a change for yourself and your organization. But it will be a positive change only if you know what are the right things to focus on, and which ones should be avoided.

To help you make 2018 your best year ever I asked 20+ BPM experts about the skills that will be hot this year.

As you will see I kept the basic structure used in 2016 and 2017 version of this post, but to make it more actionable added a question about the best resources to learn the hot BPM skills.

Plus – this time I have something extra 🙂

BPM Skills in 2017 – Hot or Not

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)
