BPM and Process Lifecycle - Title

Episode 61 – BPM and Process Lifecycle

Process Inventory - title

Episode 59 – Process Inventory: Michael Schank

Center of Excellence: Thi Nguyen

Episode 56 – Center of Excellence: Gia Thi Nguyen

Implementing a tool or standing up a new capability can be a complex task. Standing up a Center of Excellence as part of this implementation can help ease the pain for new users. However, it is not always clear what a CoE shall do and how it is integrated into an organization (or where it […]

APQC: Moritz Berger

Episode 54 – APQC: Moritz Berger

We spoke about frameworks and reference content as accelerators in a previous episode (listen here), but one of those is pretty popular here in North America, so that we have a deeper look into the APQC Process Classification Framework today.

Design-driven Transformation: James Toomey

Episode 51 – Design-driven Transformation: James Toomey

We had the topic of today’s episode – transformation – a couple of times on this podcast, even though we did not call the episodes like that. But why? Because transformation in today’s times is not an exception but the reality for all organizations. It is not just “an update by IT”, or something that […]

Sustainability Title

Episode 50 – Sustainability: Anthony Gilbreath

Some topics seem to be a “stretch too far” for this podcast, and the topic for today’s episode seems to be one of those: Sustainability. But is it?

Episode 41 – Organizational Change Management: Jehane Adam

If you have listened to a couple of podcast episodes you know that we are true believers in that the biggest “problem” in any architecture, BPM, or Process Mining project is not the technology or the processes and other architecture views – it is the people! Getting people along with your change is the hardest thing to do […]

Strategy to execution title

Episode 40 – Strategy to Execution: Dan Marquez

Developing a strategy for your organization seems like a mystery for a lot of people (and some organizations make a large coin from keeping that mystery), but in all reality it has a big part of “wild guesses” included. In this episode of the What’s Your Baseline Podcast we have Dan Marquez on the show, who […]

Women in Process - Title

Episode 32 – Women in Process: Josèphe Blondaut and Gabriela Galic

Even given the fact that we are living in the 21st century, it is interesting to see that the percentage of women who studied technology or worked in the process industry actually decreased over time. Which is a sad state of affairs. So the question now is, how we -as an industry- can add more […]

Open Source Avi Ghosh Title

Episode 29 – Open Source: Avi Ghosh

It is interesting to see how a “fringe idea” like Open Source software became mainstream within just a few years and everyone of us is using the outcome of it in our daily lives (mostly without knowing it – or have you thought what runs your car radio or the datacenter of your preferred search […]
