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.

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

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?

Do you also enjoy learning new things?

Business Process Management is a very broad and dynamic field of studies.

The good thing is that you can always search for inspiration outside your main domain to become better at what you do.

The bad thing is that often it is pretty hard to find time to learn during the working hours and it is not always easy to get approval for the training cost.

And this is where MOOCs come in handy.
