About the project

General objectives of the project are:

Objective 1.

Lack of real-life experience is one of the major obstacles when learning about conceptual knowledge. Introducing case studies of BPM projects into the course materials will improve understanding of students and better prepare them for management tasks.

This means the case studies of BPM projects will be gathered from literature (standards), ENTs and other HEIs, transformed into the process framework for HEIs and added to existing courses.
