What’s inside BPMN 2.0 Specification

In recent years BPMN 2.0 became a de facto standard in business process modeling and beyond and nowadays represents one of the focal technologies which support Business Process Management (BPM) initiatives.

The in-use version of the specification, namely BPMN 2.0, was released by OMG in 2011, with some minor changes in the following years. In 2013, BPMN 2.0.1 was released as ISO/IEC 19510:2013 standard to “create a standardized bridge for the gap between the business process design and process implementation.”  

The BPMN specification by itself is a 500+ pages long document, primarily aimed for implementers and having a specific internal structure. Due to its complexity, I’ve prepared an infographic, which outlines individual chapters’ focal topics.
