Current and future issues in BPM research: a European perspective from the ERCIS meeting 2010

Journal article
Business process management (BPM) is a still-emerging field in the academic discipline of Information Systems<br> (IS). This article reflects on a workshop on current and future issues in BPM research that was conducted by<br> seventeen IS researchers from eight European countries as part of the 2010 annual meeting of the European<br> Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS). The results of this workshop suggest that BPM research can<br> meaningfully contribute to investigating a broad variety of phenomena that are of interest to IS scholars, ranging<br> from rather technical (e.g., the implementation of software architectures) to managerial (e.g., the impact of<br> organizational culture on process performance). It further becomes noticeable that BPM researchers can make use<br> of several research strategies, including qualitative, quantitative, and design-oriented approaches. The article offers<br> the participants┬┤ outlook on the future of BPM research and combines their opinions with research results from the<br> academic literature on BPM, with the goal of contributing to establishing BPM as a distinct field of research in the IS<br> discipline.
