Hey everyone, In preparation for our next book, I thought it might be helpful to provide cheat sheets to some of the most asked about notations. I will keep this a running forum post. The first cheat sheet: Event-Based Gateways Josh

If you could pick one concept (BPMN) and one mode for consumption; what would it be? Is it something simple? something complex? something out in left-field, where I am sitting? Let me know in the comments below. Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2021 can get us back to a sense of normalcy and I can see you and in-person conferences. Josh

All; We are in the midst of writing our 2nd edition book and we want your help. Specifically, as it pertains to what you want to learn about, what you think others want to learn about, or things that we could have covered in greater detail. What we find with BPMN is that there are certain notations that are used for a variety of reasons, which was why we took the "most important" approach to our first book. One area that we are diving into further with our second edition, is the application of simulation and your BPMN models, or more importantly, learning how to simulate your process models using BPMN (and the right tools). So, if there is a notation, concept, or modeling scenario you would like for us to include, please let us know. We would love to incorporate the ideas of the BPMN modeling community. Either reply to this thread or email us directly. Josh Josh@bpmpractitioners.com Joe@bpmpractitioners.com

I am curious on your experiences with BPMN and applying it to areas of emerging technology. What are you currently working on in the field?

This forum post will be used to highlight discrepancies or tweaks to our book. Since, we can't just edit and push out an update quickly, I thought this would be a good place to share what readers like you have found.

Welcome! With the upcoming launch of our book: Learning BPMN 2.0: A practical guide for today's adult learner, it was about time we create a place for you, the adult learner and BPMN practitioner. So, as you read through our book, and practice modeling out the various exercises, share with us your models. Specifically, as you encounter differences or questions. We would love to hear from you. Guidelines for posting. 1. Please list name of the General Practitioner exercise. 2. Please upload your JPEG or PNG file to this thread. 3. Please share why you came to the conclusion for your model, if possible cite BPMN v2.0, based on your interpretation. We look forward to engaging with you and truly hope you enjoyed our book. Josh and Joe

Understanding formal expressions really come down what tool you are using for BPMN. If you are using a tool, there is specific executable language or formal expressions within the standard. For instance an unified expression language (UEL) for a conditional sequence flow from our book (Figure 168), may look like this in XML: <sequenceFlow is="flow1" Name="fromEvaluateTrainingMaterialtoModifyVideoResource" sourceRef="EvaluateTrainingMaterial" targetRef="ModifyVideoResource" <conditionExpression xsi:type="tFormalExpression"> ${evaluationresult == 'update video required'} </conditionExpression> </sequenceFlow> Basically, this expression is indicated that when the condition "update video required" is the result of our evaluation of training material, we move from activity Evaluate Training Material to Modify Video Resource. For those who are learning or may have experience with formal expressions, share any examples you may have, or feel free to point out how I could better write my formal expression.

There are some great BPMN forum groups (Google, LinkedIn) that users ask BPMN related questions. So, what are your BPMN related questions?

Conducting interviews is a great way of capturing the process from the subject matter expert’s (SME) perspective. So, let's reverse it, and you interview us. What are your questions? If you could only ask one, what would it be regarding BPMN?
