A Collaboration and Productiveness Analysis of the BPM Community

As I near completion of my Masters of Business Process Management at Queensland University of Technology, I have undertaken to write a literature review on how Business Process Management could be supported by Social Software (web 2.0 – wikis, blogs, twitter etc).

The following are just my workings as I go through this process over the next couple of months…please excuse my initial rough drafts!!
Of course, any feedback is appreciated.

Pertains to the annual international BPM conference & the authorship networks that have developed from these conferences 2003-2008.

“this paper identifies the hotbed of BPM research and maps the progressive collaboration patterns within the BPM community.”

The Authors use the defn “Business Process Management (BPM) has been characterized as the study of those methods, techniques, and software that can be used to design, enact, control, and analyze operational processes involving humans, organizations, applications, documents and other sources of information” – same defn as used by Reijers H. in A Collaboration and Productiveness Analysis of the BPM Community.

So this paper is more about collaboration between BPM Researchers than Organisational process collaboration – can draw some similarities though….
