¿Dónde aprender BPM en la Universidad?

Más del 66% de los puestos demandados en Gestión Por Procesos (Business Process Management-BPM) no se están cubriendo actualmente y el mercado de BPM crece a un ritmo del 18% [Robledo, 2018].  Las empresas necesitan abordar una revisión, gestión y optimización de sus procesos de negocio para responder a la necesaria Transformación Digital. La disrupción digital en todos los sectores obliga a tener en cuenta la disciplina BPM para abordar la gestión por procesos de cualquier organización que desee sobrevivir en la era digital. Por lo tanto, existe una necesidad real de formación en BPM.
En el estudio “The Forrester Wave: BPM Training and Certification Programs, Q2 2012” [Forrester, 12], Forrester resaltaba que cuando un profesional busca formación y certificación en BPM encuentra diferentes ofertas que cubren áreas específicas o están centrados en formación de fabricantes, por lo que no aseguran que se seleccione un programa de formación completo. En el estudio se comparaban siete organizaciones, entre las cuales había sólo dos universidades y cinco organizaciones privadas.  Por su parte,  Process Excellence Network (PEX), en el artículo “8 Business Process Management (BPM) training providers”,  preguntándose sobre qué proveedor de formación seleccionar, indica que  “las opciones pueden ser un poco abrumadoras y es crucial que seleccione un programa que le brinde una buena base en las habilidades que necesita para ejecutar proyectos BPM” [PEX, 2018]. PEX centra su selección a ocho organizaciones reconocidas en el sector. Resalta que “las universidades podrían ser una buena opción para aquellos que buscan un programa más intensivo en Business Process Management”.
Las universidades están proporcionando formación en BPM desde hace pocos años, debido a la demanda actual existente de capacitación certificada en esta disciplina y la posibilidad de empleo para el estudiante.  La formación proporcionada es muy variada desde ciertos cursos o seminarios (incluidos en formación de grado), cursos expertos concretos sobre BPM, másteres (títulos de postgrado) con titulación propia o reglada, y algún doctorado en BPM de forma excepcional.  Aunque PEX  indica que “el riesgo de los programas universitarios es que pueden ser más académicos de lo que requiere el proceso promedio de los profesionales” [PEX,2018], la realidad es que la formación universitaria reglada mediante una esmerada formación teórica y práctica cubre todas las competencias que necesita un profesional BPM.  Dado que Business Process Management es un campo con una gran salida profesional, la inversión en formación universitaria tendrá un importante retorno para el estudiante.

Para conocer la oferta actual, visita  en mi post de Albatian la lista de universidades que ofrecen estudios en BPM en el mundo, ordenado por tipo de titulación online o presencial.

Where to learn BPM in the University?

More than 66% of the positions demanded in Business Process Management (BPM) are not currently being covered and the BPM market grows at a rate of 18% [Robledo, 2018].  Companies need to address a review, management and optimization of their business processes to respond to the necessary Digital Transformation. The digital disruption in all sectors requires the BPM discipline to address the process management of any organization that wants to survive in the digital era. Therefore, there is a real need for training in BPM.
In the research “The Forrester Wave: BPM Training and Certification Programs, Q2 2012” [Forrester, 12], Forrester stressed that when a professional seeks training and certification in BPM, he finds different offers that cover specific areas or are focused on training of vendors, so they do not ensure that a complete training program is selected. The study compared seven organizations, among which there were only two universities and five private organizations. For its part, Process Excellence Network (PEX), in the article “8 Business Process Management (BPM) training providers”, which wonders about which training provider to select, indicates that  “the options can be a little overwhelming and it’s crucial that you select a program that gives you a good grounding in the skills you need to run BPM projects.” [PEX, 2018]. PEX focuses its selection on eight recognized organizations in the sector, highlighting that “Universities could be a good option for those looking for a more intensive program in Business Process Management.”.
The universities are providing BPM training for a few years, due to the current demand for certified training in this discipline and the possibility of employment for the student. The training provided is very varied from certain courses or seminars (included in undergraduate training), specific expert courses on BPM, master's degrees with own or regulated degree, and some doctorate in BPM exceptionally. Although PEX indicates that “the risk with university programs is that they might be more academic than the average process professional requires” [PEX,2018], the reality is that the regulated university education through a careful theoretical and practical training covers all the skills that a professional BPM needs. Given that Business Process Management is a field with a great professional output, investment in university training will have an important return for the student.
In order to know the current offer, a list of universities that offer BPM studies in the world, ordered by type of online or face-to-face degree is provided in my post in Albatian.
