“These little wights have made us rich, and we ought to be thankful to them”

You know the story of the Elves and the Shoemaker?   The gist is that a poor shoemaker, who intends to make a pair of shoes after a night’s sleep, sets out the materials to make them, only to find that in the middle of the night someone has mysteriously created a perfect pair. As a result of the industrious help he receives, the shoemaker grows wealthy.

It seems that the BPX wiki area is the shoemaker’s workshop and Mario Herger (no elf but a BPX thought leader in his own right) is busily populating the BPX wiki with a wealth of contents for the edification and delight of our business process experts.

There you will find: definitions, modeling tools descriptions and skills recommendations, and an emergent body of work which you are hereby invited to expand, extend, and review.
