I presented today on the second part of Active Endpoints’ BPM Summer Camp, discussing just how much BPMN your business users and analysts need to know. Michael Rowley, CTO of Active Endpoints, gave a demo of BPMN using their system, including illustrating a number of the concepts that I introduced in my presentation.

A few other references based on the questions at the end of the presentation:
- The BPMN 2.0 reference poster shown on slide 5 is available here as a free download.
- If you want BPMN training, Bruce Silver has a book and online/in-person courses available. He also uses the idea of “levels”, similar to the conformance subclasses from the standard that I discussed in the presentation, and provides some information about them on his blog.
- I wrote about Robert Shapiro’s update on BPMN 2.0 in February, including a link to the replay of the webinar and the slides.
- The Business Process Incubator has a large number of links to information on BPMN and related topics.
- The full BPMN 2.0 specification (not for the faint of heart) can be downloaded from the OMG site.
- Here’s my presentation from the February webinar on the state of BPMN implementation in the real world. You can find the webinar replay on the Active Endpoints blog.
We have the third and last part of BPM Summer Camp, “Five Things You Should Never, Ever Try in Process Development”, on July 22nd; head over to the landing page to sign up for that, as well as see a replay of the first two parts.
