Early in 2015 the foundational ideas of the SO-PC-Pro approach (including stakeholder involvement and seamless integration/execution of processes) were generalised by Metasonic and formulated as a draft “manifesto for agile BPM”. This manifesto was proposed and discussed in a session at BPM 2015, the principal conference for business process management, with an invited panel of 5 senior researchers and practitioners in that area (http://bpm2015.q-e.at/panel/) and an audience of about 60 people. This panel led to the founding of an interest group for agile BPM at the Institute of Innovative Process Management (http://www.i2pm.net/interest-groups/agile).
