It's an Agile World: Deploying BPM Tools at the Speed of Thought
Presented by: Betsy Stockdale
Deploying Business Process Management tools to enable your organization’s digital transformation strategy typically entails using general out-of-the-box solutions that are customizable to specific business problems. And while digital transformation and BPM have become a hot-topic in many organizations, agile methodologies also have gained a lot of traction in recent years. It begs the question – how can we use agile methods to deploy BPM solutions and achieve digital transformation goals?
This talk will focus on alignment strategies for ensuring that agile principles are followed during BPM tool deployments. We’ll show you how you can slice and dice business processes into agile iterations and how to prioritize which ones add the most value. We’ll challenge the idea that you need to significantly change your business to start seeing benefits from deploying BPM tool based applications. We’ll walk through a real world example of the deployment of a BPM tool into a solar company, and see how making smart choices about what to decide later allowed us to stand up a valuable application very rapidly.
While there are certainly some interesting challenges in applying agile approaches to a BPM deployment, it’s also absolutely viable and beneficial to do so that you can deliver value to the customers quickly.
- Participants will learn strategies for deploying the absolutely smallest possible BPM Tool application that still drives business value.
- Participants will learn specific techniques used to solve common problems with requirements in BPM tool deployments.
- Participants will have a better understanding of the benefits and common problems with agile approaches when applied to BPM.
