  • That's a valid point, Marco. I did not mention prototyping among the list of required skills, as I have found it to be very rare as a core competency among business process professionals. Yet I certainly agree it is an important part of virtually any successful BPM program. I missed your presentation having arrived late to Hoboken but I do like the slides. Look forward to learning more.

  • Nice presentation. I was wondering why you didn’t mention prototyping among the practices and needed expertises. We found it crucial in the BPM setting. In particular, QUICK prototyping.
    See our experience presentation at BPM 2010 in Hoboken, NJ (at Steven’s Institute):

    Lessons learned on applying BPM and MDD practices to large banking and industrial scenarios with BPMN, WebML, and WebRatio.
