Assessment of capabilities (5 big buckets)
What to rate the maturity against, e.g., CMMI
An example of how an assessment can be built and used on a regular basis

Season 3 Trailer We're back!
Welcome to Season 3 of the What’s Your Baseline podcast. A big thank you for more than 7500 downloads… so far!
That’s awesome, and I am so excited for this new season of incredible content!
My name is Roland Woldt.
And I am J-M Erlendson. This season we’re continuing our deep dive into three areas relevant to architecture and process management professionals (and casual fans!). The first area is “content” - we will explore various topics, including Open Source, QA Best Practices, and Security Architecture.
The second area is how to run a practice. We will cover topics like assessing and growing maturity, or communicating the value the practice
And lastly, we have a look at the discipline and our industry, talking about things like business agility or diversity and representation in the process and architecture field.
So join us again on this bi-weekly journey with the What’s Your Baseline podcast. Season 3 kicks off on July 25!
And we’ll see you in the next one!
Ep. 25 - (Another) Ten Things I've Learned We made it - 25 long form episodes of the podcast (and 7 "Shorts" as well).
By popular demand - and because our statistics shows it - we are having "(Another) Ten Things I've Learned" episode. This time we are talking about three major areas:
How to measure your architecture and improvement programs
1. Architecture / BPM is not about the topics at hand (apps, processes, etc.) it is about people and how people interact with each other
2. When measuring architecture, make things SMART
3. Process Mining is the “next hot thing”, but it is not all and other, older process improvement methods still have their place
4. Process and Task Mining can’t shotgun a Solution
How to get your arms around (some of) the people aspects
5. There is a new interest in “Process” while “EA” is still stuck in technology
6. We have a responsibility to enable the next generation of BPM and EA
7. Enablement must include “why”
8. Internal communications cannot come with expectations of attention
How the "new reality" in which we work for two years by now will affect us practitioners
9. We need to rethink the role of “The Office”
10. Podcasts and videos are the new way to communicate the topics

WYB Shorts 7 - Process empathy People.
For better or worse a lot of the topics in EA and BPM center around people. These are the reasons why we do things (customers who pay for our goods and services), who does the work (employees and partners), or why processes and architectures even exist in the first place.
In this What's Your Baseline Shorts, we are talking about process empathy:

What does it take to facilitate the development of a human-centric process model?
What kinds of things should you think about, and when in the process?
What does it mean to have people-focused processes?
What are Customer Journeys?
How can we use the methodology of Customer Journey Mapping to make more human-sustainable processes?

Ep. 24 - Task Mining & RPA: Kevin Scully and Ziv Ilan Task Mining and RPA are things that are often overlooked when looking at Process Mining. This can leave a big hole in the discovered process and therefore create an incomplete analysis result.
In today's podcast we are speaking with Kevin Scully and Ziv Ilan from Nintex Kryon about Task Mining, what results you can expect from it, and how those can be used to automate processes using Robotics Task Automation.
Kevin has 35+ years' experience leading and supporting GTM strategy for SMB enterprises. He's a hands-on, team player who excels at defining value propositions, building customer success stories, and increasing revenue. Kevin's main focus is supporting both software and hardware manufacturers who provide advanced technology solutions that help their clients streamline operations, improve customer experience, and reduce costs.
Ziv is Kryon's Head of Professional Services and Alliances, based in Paris. He has a military background and 11 years of experience in consulting. Today he focusses on improving processes by discovering what users *really* do using task mining, and then automating these processes using Robotics Process Automation.
We are talking about the following topics:

Kevin’s and Ziv’s background
What are RPA and RPD (Task Mining) and what are the outputs from Task Mining
The process/steps of a Task Mining project
RPA projects and what can be included - End-to-End from Process Discovery to RPA
Common questions about RPD/RPA
Where do you see this technology evolve?
How to get started with RPD/RPA?

Both of our guests can be found on LinkedIn - Kevin Scully, Ziv Ilan. You can also have a look at Kryon's website to learn more about RPD and RPA, as well as reaching out to them via that channel.

WYB Shorts 6 - What makes a good dashboard? Everyone wants to consume and understand large amounts of data. But how do you plan, design, and implement a good dashboard?
In this What's Your Baseline Shorts, J-M and Roland walk you through the process and the considerations at each step, so that the next time you create a dashboard (for example as part of your Process Mining analysis) it will be stakeholder-oriented with a clear visual hierarchy that will make your users understand your message easily and quickly.
In this episode we are talking about:

Identify your stakeholders and information needs
Define KPI and measures
Create a solution design
Build the dashboards
Identify data stories
Roll-out dashboards

WYB Shorts #3 - Why Simulation should NOT be in your Process Mining tool The topic of this What's Your Baseline Shorts podcast is Process Simulation and why you should not have this in your Process Mining tool, but rather as part of your design platform.
We speak about these topics:

Why simulation?
What do you need for simulation
What are the outcomes of a simulation
What are the different types of simulation?

Ep. 23 - How to create a business case Welcome to another episode of our podcast. Today's topic is about creating a formal business case as part of the change process.
Creating a business case document can be a challenge for someone who has not done that before, and one might think that this is a single-person activity. Nothing could be further from the truth - in our experience, a good business case document is the result of collaboration between multiple people in your organization (and vendors) that happens in multiple iterations until every stakeholder gives the "green light".
In detail we are talking about:

Why the need for a business case?
Where does business case creation fit into the change lifecycle?
High-level steps to create a business case
What information do you need to create a business case?
Who should be involved in making the case?
Example business case in the context of a value proposition
Tips & tricks to make an effective business case
