At the beginning there were just common sense. Then we turned our common sense into experiences and after that routines and finally processes. People went from processes to process automation where the process were governed by IT-systems.
These systems were called BPMS which gave the impression of agility in terms of process changeability. They managed processes, measured the efficiency, simulated and improved the processes. Each new lap around the BPM cycle took away a part of the original common sense. We gave it a few laps more and then the processes were finally based on everything except common sense.
Could that be a real scenario with BPMS?
