Episode 25 – (Another) Ten Things I’ve Learned
We made it – 25 long form episodes of the podcast (and 7 “Shorts” as well).
By popular demand – and because our statistics shows it – we are having “(Another) Ten Things I’ve Learned” episode. This time we are talking about three major areas:
How to measure your architecture and improvement programs
- Architecture / BPM is not about the topics at hand (apps, processes, etc.) it is about people and how people interact with each other
- When measuring architecture, make things SMART
- Process Mining is the “next hot thing”, but it is not all and other, older process improvement methods still have their place
- Process and Task Mining can’t shotgun a Solution
How to get your arms around (some of) the people aspects
- There is a new interest in “Process” while “EA” is still stuck in technology
- We have a responsibility to enable the next generation of BPM and EA
- Enablement must include “why”
- Internal communications cannot come with expectations of attention
How the “new reality” in which we work for two years by now will affect us practitioners
- We need to rethink the role of “The Office”
- Podcasts and videos are the new way to communicate the topics
