Who could disagree with your plea for more perspective? And indeed, ‘classical’ BPM tools don’t seem to drive or motivate people. Then again, you might be reasoning just a bit too much from your own perspective, as an obviously free, independent and exploring individual. I know quite some people that actually benefit from having more rigid process support, as it releases them from having to plot the boundaries themselves and provides them with the foundation to create results, be successful and – ultimately – be happier.
I do not intend to be patronizing here, it’s just that not everybody has the mindset of a former Gartner analyst or Chief Technology Officer (random examples here, of course).
Having said that, let’s get back to the enabling applications. Old school BPM tools apparently don’t provide autonomy, mastery or purpose. Got that. You work for a technology company that approaches process management in a different way, with different tools. But do these tools actually create more perspective for its users, do they motivate and drive them? Or is that just too much asked of an application?
