The premier destination for strategic process management insights.
Organizations are undergoing major transformations – to shift to digital business, become more customer-centric, and keep pace with regulatory changes. Any transformation impacts business processes, often requiring dramatic changes to how people work. Yet over 70% of transformation initiatives fail. Process management practitioners can change that and directly contribute to the success of their organization’s initiative by applying the latest process thinking, techniques and technologies to innovate and drive change.

Key Take-Aways from the 2014 Conference
Over 20 Gartner analysts and 600 attendees were on hand last year to hear the latest BPM presentations from the Gartner research community, attend workshops run by expert analysts and industry leaders, hear real-life experiences during peer case studies, engage in one-on-one meetings with Gartner analysts and check out the latest solutions at the Solution Showcase.
Key Take-Aways from the 2014 Conference Included:
Establish a business process competency center (BPCC) and staff key roles if you expect to do projects that span multiple functions
Evolve the BPCC to get to the BPM maturity level necessary to business outcomes
Refocus investments and resources away from hindsight reporting and toward diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive analytics
Don’t sit and wait for business and IT leaders to deliver a cohesive and actionable digital business strategy – take this opportunity to engage with business and IT leaders, and then realize or articulate their business direction
Moving from automating to digitalizing processes means going beyond standardizing to enabling just enough variation for those processes within that work
Change will become more volatile, disruptive, complex in scope and novel – start thinking how to convert change into opportunities.
Change is about winning hearts and building trust – “talking the talk and walking the walk” will be a critical personal skills for process improvement and change leaders in the future
"I really enjoyed the keynotes, they were very energetic and motivated bringing the “change” and the “connection.” I liked all the presentations because they shed a new light to BPM.”

This year's theme:
Business Transformation Through Strategic Process Management
While building our agenda for the 2015 Summit, two stats struck me: 75% of business are either beginning, or in the midst of, digital business transformation initiatives; yet Gartner predicts that only 30% of these efforts will be successful. Process is one of the key initiative areas businesses have to focus on when undergoing change, which makes this year's focus crucial to successful business transformation.
Do you have the right tactics to embrace the challenges that come with transformation, adapt your process management thinking and methods to reimagine your business processes? How can you work best with others to ensure adoption of changes and enable organizational change?
At our Summit we will present our newest research on strategic process management methods, benefits, tools and technologies to help you deliver the results your business leaders want, whether that is streamlining processes to gain efficiency and productivity or reimagining processes to drive innovation and growth.
What We Hear About Our Speakers
The keynote speakers where very engaging and the content of each track/session was thought-provoking and insightful.
