In our last whitepaper (Rethinking BPMN: What is a GOOD Process Model), we discussed what makes a process model work, in the second part we propose a process to model processes (the meta-process, as buzzword fans may like
to call it). As I often do, we will use a WHY-WHAT-HOW-WHO-WHEN-WHERE framework to structure our thinking.
How do you even start?
This free white paper will break down the best approach to building a process model that fits your needs.
The "Process Model Process" is broken down into stages:
- Stage 1: PURPOSE.
- Stage 2: HEAD to TAIL (yes, humans have tails, too).
- Stage 3: BACKBONE.
- Stage 4: SKELETON.
- Stage 5: SYSTEM to SUBSYSTEMS.
- Stage 6: WHOLE BODY.
- Stage 7: COMMUNITY.
