A Community’s Wish Realized
What we all have envisioned, worked for and announced over 2 years ago on the BPX website is finally here and it will be ready for TechEd Las Vegas 2008.
A BPX certification curriculum that will service the BPX community is launching. It will include the SAP Certified Business Process Associate and SAP Certified Business Process Professional designations.
The certification bridges various organizations of our ecosystem.
By creating alignment with SAP consulting, education, product strategy and our community it harmonizes the BPX goals bridging IT and Business. It is the first certification of its kind and the answer to the constant demand of our community for training around BPX skills.
Michael Schwandt introduced us to the SAP Process Office two years ago and with it http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/u/251754001 [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken] and Thilo Bischoff. Thilo and Mark are active contributors to BPX and help supply the course’s methodology and strategy together with the course owner and co-creator, Ann Rosenberg. Ann is from SAP Consulting and she together with cohort Marc Dietrich, are working BPX consultants as well as course/content owners. Ann coordinated with SAP Global Education (Molly Bazemore and Susan Martin), BPM product management (Thomas Volmering), SAP Process Governance (Mark Scavillo, Thilo Bischoff, and Vesela Polihronova), the ARIS folks (Niki Jacobson) to produce the course and Ann welcomes partnership with our BPX Community.
Ann is coordinating with our content and collaboration team and is working with Audrey Weinland and myself to provide the following deliverables immediately:
- Course and book excerpts for the BPX website and community
- SAP TechEd BPX Community Day Sessions that integrate into the full BPX day’s content and curriculum (in all 3 locations)
- SAP TechEd Clubhouse sessions for “meet the BPX-perts (in all 3 locations)
In addition there will be some conversation and more around the to-be-released book “Roadmap to Business Process Management“. The publication already has generated much interest in the ASUG ranks as Mark Scavillo introduced it in ourThe BPM Transformation: SAP’s Journey to Process Orientation- ASUG Webcast a few weeks ago.
As a community taking an acitve interest in this curriculum, role and skill set the BPX is uniquely positioned to supply feedback, responses and yes, critique. There are many who put this offering high on their. I, for one, have a feeling they won’t be disappointed.
