Together with Piero Fraternali and Carmen Vaca Ruiz I’ve recently written a chapter published within the Social BPM Handbook.
The details on the book are available online, including the complete Introduction containing full Table of Contents and Abstracts of each chapter. The book is a valuable resource in the field and gathers the contributions of several experts including Clay Richardson, Keith Swenson, Nathaniel Palmer, Sandy Kemsley, Max J. Pucher (see the post on his chapter), Keith Harrison-Broninski, and many others (most of them are also listed in my Prominent BPM Bloggers post).
- At the methodological level, providing a framework for understanding the ways to incorporate social interactions in business processes.
- At the notational level, verifying the capacity of a mainstream process modeling language (BPMN 2.0) to express social interactions and cover Social BPM requirements.
- At the technical level, exploiting model-driven software engineering techniques to produce applications enacting the social process directly from the (extended) BPMN process schema.
- A classification of Social BPM adoption levels.
- An extension of BPMN enabling social activities, events and conditional process flows.
- An extension of the WebML (Web Modeling Language) for expressing Web applications interacting with social platforms, through abstract operations represented as components and design patterns.
- A technical framework for generating Social BPM applications directly from specifications encoded in the social extension of BPMN 2.0, based on model transformations and on a runtime architecture integrating business process execution and social task enactment, implemented in a commercial tool suite called WebRatio BPM.

@MarcoBrambi Thank you, very interesting book and topics. I did a survey of thinking around social and mobile
BPM on our blog a few months ago:
Social and mobile BPM: the debate continues.
Actually I remember I read your post some months ago and I found it extremely interesting. It's nice that different viewpoints recognize the same potential trends in BPM.
I also presented a quick vision on these (and other) trends some time ago:
Excellent presentation, appreciate the link!
Hi, How could I get a copy of this book? Thanks.
