BPM Quotes of the Week - June 20, 2016

"Enter the blockchain, the first native digital medium for peer to peer value exchange. Its protocol establishes the rules—in the form of globally distributed computations and heavy duty encryption—that ensure the integrity of the data traded among billions of devices without going through a trusted third party. Trust is hard-coded into the platform. That’s why we call it the Trust Protocol. It acts as a ledger of accounts, a database, a notary, a sentry, and clearing house, all by consensus."
-Don Tapscott

From the BPM Forum

"Everyone thinks that they are a better lover or driver than they really are. Companies think that they are managing their processes better than they really are. The maturity model is a reality check for them."
-Ian Gotts

Do BPM Maturity Models Have Any Application in the Real World? "To answer the original question from Emiel, 'no.'"
-Patrick Lujan

"I think the answer is 'it depends'. If you have been on a journey before, a rough map is not all that useful. However, if you are a journey that is new to you, it should be helpful. A good maturty model gives you signposts and indicators of good progress."
-Jim Sinur

"Considering the current absence of commonly-agreed upon terminology and methodologies in the BPM industry, I would say that BPM maturity models use non-mature-enough basis thus limited in practice."
-Dr. Alexander Samarin

"The key is simplicity, otherwise users will not use the system. Highly desirable to have a UI with as little need as possible for navigation via menus, icons."
-Karl Walter Keirstead

"The UI is the most important element to the delivery of an application supporting the BPM custom build. As such can be the benchmark in estimating how long to build the end to end process once you have established with users what is required."
-David Chassels

"The UI is just like a Joke. If you have to explain it, it's not that good."
-Michel van den Hoven
