CamundaCon 2020: Getting the Business to Think Process Automation
Fidelity encompasses over 30 individual business units and as we look to convert from a workflow application to a BPM application we’re faced with a tremendous challenge. The broad group of “business” folks who actually manage and own our processes need to be brought along as part of our conversion journey; however, they are accustomed to the limitations of our legacy workflow app and have designed their processes around those limitations. Educating them on BPM so that they can re-think their processes to take advantage of the expanded capabilities of BPM will be critical to realizing success as part of this transformation.
- Getting the non-technical side of organizations to understand enough about BPM to organize their processes in such a way that they are easy to optimize with BPM.
- Overcoming barriers of folks who consider themselves non-technical in learning BPM.
- Communicating organizational benefits of getting the business to understand and adopt this technology.
