Episode 62 – BPM Implementation – A User Story: Martin Holling
This episode is a first for the podcast – we are not talking about something from an external perspective, but speak with someone “in the trenches” who is actively implementing BPM in an 160-year old organization.
Our guest today is Martin Holling, who is working at Kemna (a road construction company in northern Germany) and who has worked at Siemens, as well as a consultant in the BPM space before. His main objective is to figure out processes and how they should be designed and implemented to be efficient and effective. Then you should think about tools that can help you digitalize your work with continual improvement and automation.
Martin is also very active in the German BPM scene and is the co-host of the “BPM Stammtisch” (a regular meetup of BPM enthusiasts in Hamburg) that is organized via the New Process Pro community.
In this episode of the podcast we are talking about:
- Martin’s background
- His transition from Siemens to a consulting role, and his current BPM Lead role in a road construction company
- Challenges in road construction industry, including competition and thin profit margins
- Importance of efficiency and process improvement
- Martin’s approach to introducing process management in a new organization
- Importance of employee engagement in the process
- Encouragement for listeners to stay open to new ideas and strategies
