Boston, MA, and Warwick, UK (PRWEB) April 5, 2007
Everything's big in Texas, and the BPM Group's annual conference -- to be held in Arlington, Texas -- is shaping up to be the biggest event in the business club's 15-year history.
Considered to be the seminal event in Business Process Management, the BPM Group's Annual Conference -- this year called Process 2007 -- brings together resources from the 50+ thought leaders of the club, BPM Group Principals and the over 24,000 club members in one event.
To be held at the Arlington Convention Center in Arlington, Texas, October 2nd through the 4th (with pre-conference workshops on the 1st), bringing the event to the US (traditional the Annual Conference is held in London) marks the dramatic growth in US-based membership over the last year.
"Our US-based membership continues to grow at a record-breaking rate," said Steve Towers, BPM Group CEO. "Considering that we now have more members in the US than any other country we decided these members deserved to have us bring our 15th Annual Conference to them, rather than them coming to us."
With a focus on the practical experience that is only earned through diligent, intensive work "in the field," Process 2007 offers attendees direct exposure to leading practitioners, the industry's leading experts and networking opportunities that are unrivaled by any other process related event.
Imre Hegedus, BPM Group Principal and Global Chair of Chapters, stated, "I'm delighted to have the opportunity to serve as the Process 2007 Conference Director. We are already well on our way to having the best conference experience we have ever assembled ready for our US debut in Texas. It's an honor to be Director of such a prestigious event."
The theme for this year's conference will be "Business Process Management in Practice", with the emphasis on the pragmatic aspects of strategizing, designing, implementing and managing the complete life cycle of business processes at the strategic and tactical levels.
A key feature of this year's event is CEM --- Customer Expectation Management -- that has surfaced in the past 12 months as a key strategic initiative for many global organizations. Terry Schurter and Steve Towers will lead the sessions on the latest breakthroughs in harnessing the power behind the 21st Century Value Chain.
"CEM has already made its mark at strategic levels of leading global organizations," claimed Terry Schurter, CEM co-author and BPM Group CIO. "At Process 2007, delegates will gain exposure on the techniques needed to take CEM out into every level of the organization as an enterprise strategy and be privy to the very latest insights from our ongoing empirical research in this area. That research has led to some surprising, and exhilarating new opportunities."
This year's conference will feature examples and case studies of proven business process solutions and practices and will showcase innovative methods for strategic process alignment and reliable design and project management approaches to assure effective rollout, the latest techniques and tools for all aspects of BPM implementation and execution.
PROCESS 2007 will help delegates learn how to visualize, design, implement, continuously improve and sell optimal business process solutions enabled by the latest human and technology capabilities
