ProcessWorld 2006, presented by IDS Scheer, the provider of solutions for business process excellence, exceeded all expectations. Three hundred participants from 14 countries traveled to the Doral Resort & Spa in Miami to hear thought leaders expound on the importance of agility and witness real-life accounts of process excellence in action. This year's ProcessWorld agenda included three tracks featuring interactive roundtables and sessions covering process excellence in manufacturing, services and public sector organizations.

Prof. August-Wilhelm Scheer, founder of IDS Scheer, opened up the conference with a session featuring jazz pieces interspersed with his profound views on business agility. According to Prof. Scheer, in business process management, the rules of standardization revolve around communication, especially having the IT and core business teams speak the same language. He also noted that operational processes such as procurement or sales need supporting managerial processes for the orchestration of BPM as well as directing governance processes to ensure legal compliance. Prof. Scheer also discussed the agility of service-oriented architectures (SOAs) and equated them to the small parts of a jazz melody called licks that can be assembled into a new melody.
