Date/Time: 12.07.2018 09:00 - 10:00

Location: TC.4.03


Business Process Management is conducted in the context of a larger economic environment, fast moving demographic and societal changes, technological innovation and entire paradigm shifts. This presentation will look back and forward by characterising the requirements, achievements, but in particular upcoming challenges and opportunities for BPM in four stages, i.e. engineering excellence, corporate excellence, customer excellence and societal excellence. As most BPM activities in practice and academia are still in stage 2, there will be a number of exciting and rewarding pathways for researcher who like to make rigorous, high impact contributions in an increasingly opportunity-rich environment. This presentation will provide first insights into Michael’s upcoming book (A Digital Mind).
