05: Business Process Management

Track Description


Business Process Management (BPM) has evolved into a widely deployed and comprehensively studied discipline. BPM comprises activities such as the identification, definition and modeling of business processes, their implementation and execution, monitoring, mining and control as well as continuous and disruptive process improvements. Enterprise-wide, it requires capabilities such as governance, methods, information technology, culture, people, and strategic alignment.In the networked society, however, business processes will increasingly span and be embedded in larger digital, ubiquitous ecosystems consisting not only of corporate players, but also including empowered citizens and a variety of physical things (Internet of Things). These developments require extensions of the current BPM capabilities and of our understanding of the related opportunities, challenges, and theories. Thus, this track aims to create a forum for the reflection on the current status of BPM as much as an exploration of the future research needs. We are open to a wide variety of research approaches including quantitative and qualitative, empirical, conceptual and analytical approaches such as case studies, action research, surveys, experiments, design science-oriented, and economic research.
