Promoting Business Process Management Excellence in Russia Proceedings and Report of the PropelleR 2012 Workshop held in Moscow, April 24 to 26, 2012
BPM research has been of great importance in Germany since the early 1990s. In Russia, increased competition and new IT possibilities have only recently forced both companies and governmental institutions to start taking benefits from BPM. Against this background, the workshop PropelleR 2012 brought together German and Russian BPM researchers as well as practitioners in order to discuss recent BPM trends and challenges. The guiding question addressed by PropelleR 2012 was: “How can the growing complexity of business processes in German-Russian relations be addressed by a holistic BPM approach?” This report includes a set of articles that reflect the PropelleR workshop participants’ viewpoints on this question.
Within this paper authors present the formalized approach vastly based on the adaptation of a well-known technique House of Quality for managing IS-enabled organizational transformation. The provided approach is meant to support designing rational set of organizational change management measures during information system implementation project under the condition of cost and time constraints and thus build an explicit link with quantified coefficients showing the relations between organizational business benefits and organizational change management measures.
Despite of the growing popularity and maturity of BPM on the global arena, for the past two decades Russia and the whole Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region have fallen behind Western developed economies in terms of adopting BPM concept. From an empirical point of view, it is crucial to determine the current status of BPM in Russian practice and research and derive future goals for research and technology transfer. Therefore, this paper analyzes the
current state of BPM in the Russian market and attempts to answer the questions: (1) What is the current status of BPM practice and research in Russia? (2) What is the possible future development of BPM in Russia?
Innovation is the realization of a creative idea being applied to an existing problem. This application may be either of a new idea or the adoption of an existing idea. As we can see some aspects of Enterprise Architecture development and other activities in large organizations may grow from supposed purely engineering tasks to real research problems. This is a soil for cooperation and co-innovation in research and development that may be of a great value for both science and industry.
