Class Notes: The BPM curriculum revisited
Blog: BPTrends - Class Notes
With his colleagues, Stefan Seidel and Sanja Tumbas at the University of Liechtenstein, Jan vom Brocke set about to update a 2012 Column, Class Notes: BPM Research and Education—How was School Today? In this Column, the authors describe the three major archetypes of BPM education and emphasize the need to teach BPM as a problem-solving discipline that drives innovation in a digital world.
