  11. 11. Doing BPMN Right<br />Case study: Human Resources and Skills Development Canada<br />Getting started:<br />Process modeling for governance, not execution<br />Selected BPMN over IDEF and UML for business focus<br />Simulated processes to convince financial management of value<br />
  12. 12. BPMN at HRSDC<br />Internal methodology for process modeling and BPMN<br />Using BPA tool for modeling and publishing<br />Internal BPMN training of ~140 people<br />Simulation training of ~3 people<br />Using desktop sharing software for mentoring<br />
  13. 13. HRSDC BPMN Diagram<br />
  14. 14. What Can Go Wrong<br />No formal recognition of process modeling as a discipline<br />No process modeling methodology<br />Lack of aptitude and/or training<br />Lack of mentoring<br />IT taking complete ownership of process modeling<br />
  15. 15. What Makes BPMN Work<br />Overcome “belief gap” to convince people of benefits<br />Develop a methodology to accompany the notation<br />Identify people with aptitude/interest<br />Train different personas on different BPMN subclasses<br />Maintain BPMN guru for mentoring<br />
