Séminaire par Prof. Jan Mendling : From Scientific Process Management to Process Science

Date/Heure  : jeudi 12 novembre 2015 à 14h

Title : From Scientific Process Management to Process Science

Abstract :
In this talk, we will discuss the concepts of Business Process Management as they are currently described in the literature and raise the question how the BPM lifecycle can be systematically integrated with the scientific method. At the heart of our argument is the observation that the implementation of hypothetical process improvements does not necessarily result in an improve processes. We will sketch in how far the scientific method can be of help and how such an approach will eventually inform process science.
