Business Process Model and Notation Example of a Business Process Model and Notation for a process with a normal flow. Business Process Model Notation (BPMN) is a graphical representation for specifying business processes in a business process model. Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI) developed BPMN, which has been maintained by the Object Management Group since the two organizations merged in 2005. As of March 2011, the current version of BPMN is 2.0.[1] With the version change from BPMN to BPMN 2.0 the name has been adapted to Business Process Model and Notation as beginning with version 2.0 the language does not only contain notational information, but execution semantics.

John Kapeleris Journal “If you wait for opportunities to occur, you will be one of the crowd”. Edward de Bono Dr Edward de Bono introduced a simple, but powerful technique called the Six Thinking Hats[1]. The technique outlines different thinking styles that are associated with a different coloured hat. This parallel thinking approach forces each of the participants in a team meeting or focus group to adopt the particular thinking style represented by each coloured hat. By conceptualizing each type of hat, the person focuses on the style of thinking associated with each colour.

Brickflow launches as tool for curating social media Brickflow, a visual storytelling tool that uses social media content, launched into public beta on Saturday. The platform lets users curate content from Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr or specific URLs and displays the content in an stream that plays automatically. "We realised how hard it was to do something meaningful with social media content," Mihaly Borbely, co-founder of Brickflow, told of the company's genesis. "You have all these curation tools but they don't let you build a visual narrative, you just get a linear feed." Brickflow holds similarities with Storify in that it acts acts as a social media curation tool, but with a more visual, cinematic format. Users can connect their relevant social media accounts and create 'flows' interspersed with text written on individual "bricks" in the platform itself.

What is a Service Desk and why is it important to your company? Have you wondered what a Service Desk is? Are you curious as to how a Help Desk fits into your IT demands? Do you question what the differences are? Do you not know which one will benefit your company the most? Chris Mackey, Product Services Manager INVEST (mnemonic) One of the characteristics of Agile Methodologies such as Scrum or XP is the ability to move stories around, taking into account their relative priority - for example - without much effort. If you find user stories that are tightly dependent, a good idea might be to combine them into a single user story. The only thing that is fixed and set in stone in an agile project is an iteration backlog (and, even then, it can be broken). While the story lies in the product backlog, it can be rewritten or even discarded, depending on business, market, technical or any other type of requirement by team members. The focus here is to bring actual project-related value to the end-user. Coming up with technical stories that are really fun to code but bring no value to the end-user violates one of the Agile Principles, which is to continuously deliver valuable software.[2]

Business-IT Maturity Model I have good news, and I have bad news! The Good News… The IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) 2011 edition and the ISO/IEC 20000 standard for IT Service Management formalized the existence of the Business Relationship Manager (BRM) role and corresponding Business Relationship Management process as a new best practice and international IT Service Management standard requirement. This is good – for professional BRMs around the world, for the IT profession in general, and for improving the business return on IT investments, as technology becomes ever more deeply embedded in business processes. The Bad News… (And I know I will get hate mail and lose readership for saying this, but…) As defined by ITIL, the BRM role comes off as somewhat tactical – not something to get business leaders salivating over their new partnership with IT, nor hungry to innovate business products and services!

Process View of Work In his book The Agenda (New York: Crown Business, 2001), Michael Hammer defines process as “an organized group of related activities that work together to transform one or more kinds of input into outputs that are of value to the customer.” Hammer’s definition communicates several key ideas: A process is a group of activities, not just one.The activities that make up a process are not random or ad hoc; they are related and organized.All the activities in a process must work together toward a common goal.Processes exist to create results your customers — whether they’re internal (within your organization, such as a department) or external (outside your organization, such as paying customers) — care about. A process also can be viewed as a “value chain,” in which each activity or step contributes to the end result.
