AMCIS 2010 Call for Papers

Business Process Management and Innovation mini-track

[Systems Analysis & Design track]
August 12-15, 2010, Lima, Peru

Over the past 15 years attitudes toward business processes have changed significantly within organizations. What started with Total Quality Management initiatives and continued through Business Process Reengineering (BPR) projects of the early1990s has evolved into a comprehensive management practice that permeates both the business and the technology side of organizations. Business Process Management (BPM) can be defined as methods and tools surrounding the definition, implementation, and improvement of lateral processes in organizations. BPM tools and techniques play a significant role in both intra-organizational and inter-organizational process design. As BPM continues to gain importance in today’s organization, an increasing number of studies detail efficiency, effectiveness and agility improvements resulting from process management initiatives. Innovative industrial implementations and applications of BPM methods and techniques are of much interest today, given their potential for bringing significant gains to the enterprise through the automated coordination of activities, process participants and the integration of applications.

This mini-track seeks contributions that discuss the management of business processes as well as technologies for process automation. We encourage submissions from both a managerial as well as a technical perspective.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
-Business process automation and workflow management systems
-Business process and rule modeling, languages and design patterns
-Strategies for business process design and innovation
-Service-oriented architectures for BPM
-Resource management and  capacity planning in BPM
-Information security and assurance in BPM
