There is a lot of momentum in BPM fora as people from all walks of life conclude that some form of BPM is needed in order to make sustainable lasting and meaningful change for their clients and in their organisations.
Most of the people joining the great BPM debate have backgrounds in process re-engineering or IT, among many others. Some have come from organisations where BPM maturity is high with process thinking very well established. Others have come from more chaotic places where BPM is in its early stages.
The paths taken to the gate of BPM can be very very different. This results in lots of people having strong opinions, and a good chance that most are right, albeit looking at similar problems from different angles, and different points in the BPM lifecycle.
