From the BPM Forum

"Today, a better way though is to start from work for which an automation business case can be built, and then apply BPM process tools complemented by rules and algorithms. All-in, full court press. The technology is up to the challenge now, for all work patterns, including case."
-John Morris

-E. Scott Menter

-Dr. Alexander Samarin

Is It More Important for a Process to Be Adaptive than Efficient? "An adaptive process ultimately leads to efficiency gains. The reverse is not true."

"It doesn't make sense to use a BPMS that doesn't fully support unstructured and collaborative work patterns."
-John Reynolds
