Episode 57 – Process Mining Analysis
You bought the tool and now the most critical question for your success comes up: “Now what?”.
This leads to these questions: what can you do in the tools, what can you expect, and -maybe most importantly- what do you do after you’ve done a part of the analysis. You also need to have a “meta process” on how to approach a Process Mining project.
These are all the topics that we are talking about in this episode of the What’s Your Baseline? podcast. Since this is a comprehensive (and long) episode, I have added timestamps to the different topics, so that you can find the snippets that are relevant for you after listening to the whole episode 🙂

Ep. 57 – Process Mining Analysis – What's Your Baseline? Enterprise Architecture & Business Process Management Demystified
- Here is the graphic of the 6-step approach to process mining projects:
- You can also learn more about the approach and the detailed steps in courses that I created on iGrafx University, and see this applied to our Process360 Live tool here (free of charge): https://university.igrafx.com/learn/learning_plan/view/37/process-mining-analyst
- In this episode we made some references to previous episodes
- And here is an example fishbone diagram
- I mentioned a couple of times in the episode that I am currently working on an iGrafx University course about data modeling. Here is the outline as a mind map – do you have any feedback/additions to it?
- And lastly, a few photos from my PTO in New River Gorge National Park (the youngest of all NPs here in the US) – in case you are looking for some inspiration for a future trip 🙂
