Ten years ago, in 2008 I was already investigating BPMN and I realized that beside the BPMN specification and some research articles, there was a luck of simple learning materials. Together with my colleague Tomislav Rozman, we’ve decided to create a poster which presented BPMN notation as well the best and worst practices of using it. The poster was partially based our article ‘Analysis of most common process modelling mistakes in BPMN process models’ which was published in ‘2008 BPM and Workflow handbook‘.
Quickly after publishing the poster on a website under Creative Common license, it got a lot of attention.
The poster was downloaded more than 60.000 times and translated by volunteers in seven languages: Romanian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Portuguese, Polish, Spanish and Brazilian.
With BPMN poster I realized that with a good idea and relatively small input on time and money one can gain significant results.
What about you. Do you find such kind of learning materials (i.e. posters, quick reference guides, cheat sheets, infographics, …) useful for the professional work?
