BPM—Too Much BP, Not Enough of the M 

Derek Miers, Enix Consulting, United Kingdom
The problem with many BPM deployments is that they often overlook the reason why this technology is needed in the first place—to support the achievement of business objectives. The re-emergence of business processes as a core discipline in modern business management is fairly clear. But in order to really derive the maximum benefit from BPM initiatives, firms need to manage the people interface more carefully.

ASAP/Wf-XML 2.0 Cookbook—Updated

Keith D Swenson, Fujitsu Software Corporation, United States
This paper is for those who have a process engine of some sort, and wish to implement a Wf-XML interface. At first, this may seem like a daunting task because the specifications are thick and formal. But, as you will see, the basic capability can be implemented quickly and easily. This paper will take you through the basics of what you need to know in order to quickly set up a foundation and demonstrate the most essential functions. The rest of the functionality can rest on this foundation. The approach is to do a small part of the implementation in order to understand how your particular process engine will fit with the protocol.
