This presentation offers practical approaches attendees can use to enhance the success rate and impact of their process improvement efforts. Our speaker, Jason Magidson, has spent more than twenty five years learning, applying, and integrating approaches that support both business process transformation and creating organizations that people love working in.
Jason has brought together best practices from other fields and combined them with BPM to enhance BPM results. Through trial, error, and experimentation, Jason has found that success of BPM tools and methods can be substantially improved when combined with approaches that include culture, core values, intrinsic motivation, and challenging and inspiring visions.
