I think you really have to see this presentation by Prof. zur Muehlen on BPM standards, Origins, Overview, and Directions. Very thourough work by somebody with years of experience in research on BPM. You may be surprise by the insights and the novel perspectives under which the fuzzy concept of BPM, which is more than ever on the verge of becoming yet another inflated buzz word can bring you. I am very glad Pro. zur Muehlen wrote this 80 slides long presentation. I think it is useful to both business people and researchers. Enjoy!
