You probably didn’t notice…

… but I changed the title and tag line for this blog. There are two primary reasons for this, one personal and one professional.

First the personal. I’ve decided to expand the scope from just work to a few choice personal items. The one that you’ll see the most of for the next several months is related to the Tough Mudder New England, a challenge I’ve taken on to raise money for Children’s Hospital Boston. I may throw in an article on other topics here and there as well, so some of the posts will be less about BPM and Case Management and more about life in general. And so, the randomness of the blog drives the title to a degree (because the posts will occasionally be sort of random).

On the work front, I chose the title “Practically Unpredictable” because it reflects my belief that many of the core business processes we deal with day-in and day-out are just about always unpredictable. So rather than strictly taking about process improvement, I though the title should reflect the biggest challenges we face in business.

So there you have it. Hope you enjoy the expanded content and that you aren’t chased away by the random topics here and there. Thanks for reading!

It’s been too long

My apologies, the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 were such busy times that I let my poor blog wither on the vine. I’ve got a few pieces cooking and hope to get those up in the near future. Thanks for your patience

The reality of “Private Clouds”

Great article here by Andre Yee. I happen to agree, at least as of now, that the concept of a Private Cloud sort of defeats the purpose of Cloud Computing in general.

You have to start somewhere

When I think about what my first blog post should be, it’s tempting to fall back on cliched quotes like “The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.” The fact is though, as cliched as the quote might be, there is some truth in it. I have a concept for where I want this site to head, but as I’ve found many times over in life, planning is a great concept and one that the world laughs at. What I will say is that I’ll try and stick to topic, which is focusing on improving business processes. I can’t promise I won’t head down a side path now and again, as I tend to do that now and again. So, with the dreaded “first post” behind me, on to more interesting topics!
