Untitled Document


Thursday, July 15 • Moderated by Connie Moore of Forrester Research

Connie Moore of Forrester Research http://www.forrester.com/rb/analyst/connie_moore along with authors of the newly published book Mastering the Unpredictable http://www.masteringtheunpredictable.com/ will host a Tweet Jam to answer questions about the top challenges facing business and IT practitioners in managing the unpredictable, less structured business processes that remain major headaches for IT organizations – and how Adaptive Case Management (ACM) http://www.xpdl.org/nugen/p/adaptive-case-management/public.htm can help solve them.

According to Nathaniel Palmer, editor-in-chief of BPM.com and executive director of the Work?ow Management Coalition (WfMC), "Right now, case management is the next new big thing in process technology and it's critically important that we take a deep, informed look to make sure we understand how to apply it to our business-transformation efforts."

Contributors to Mastering the Unpredictable include Palmer and leading experts in the field of business process management (BPM): Longtime WfMC associate Keith Swenson, as well as industry thought leaders Henk de Man, David Hollingsworth, Dana Khoyi, Frank Michael Kraft, Caffrey Lee, John T. Matthias, Dermot McCauley, Max J. Pucher, Tom Shepherd and Jacob Ukelson.
