As one of the largest BPM conferences in the world, the Gartner BPM Summit offers objective advice and insights into some of the latest issues, disciplines and trends emerging in the BPM community. With the Gartner BPM Summit coming up next week in Baltimore, we thought we’d take this opportunity to pull together a quick guide of some must see sessions.
Gartner Keynote: The 2011 Gartner Scenario: Critical Capabilities That Create and Sustain Business Value
We all know that there is an alarming disconnect between business and IT. For some time, the two groups have struggled to see eye-to-eye to deliver value for their process improvement initiatives. In this session, Ken McGee plans to dive into the most important capabilities business process improvement teams should leverage and how they will evolve over time.

The BPM Scenario: From Operational Excellence to Resilient Processes

Janelle Hill will discuss why BPM is more important than ever and the strategic reasons why organizations should start moving from operational excellence to more adaptive processes.
Leveraging a COE to Drive Better Business Process Improvements
Organizations that implement a process Center of Excellence (COE) have a higher rate and degree of success for their business improvement programs. In this roundtable, Kevin Haugh, vice president of product marketing and management for Metastorm, will lead an interactive discussion on how Process Centers of Excellence enable organizations to better manage, streamline and standardize their BPM projects by applying best practices and prior lessons learned around requirement discovery techniques, project success metrics, methodologies and team makeup.
