In my opinion, this book is a must-read for beginners in the BPM field, and for people who want to extend their knowledge on different techniques to deal with each phase of the business process lifecycle. It is also highly recommended for teaching about BPM or about process modelling with BPMN. I have used it myself for that purpose and I am very happy with the experience.
The book introduces BPM and then browses through all the phases of the business process lifecycle, using an informal and easily understandable vocabulary targeted at all kinds of readers. Without delving too much into technical questions, yet providing descriptions with sufficient details to understand the difficulties and insights of the approaches discussed, the authors describe techniques for process identification and process discovery, a great manual for process modelling based on the features provided by BPMN 2.0, quantitative and qualitative methods that can be used for process analysis, heuristics for process re-design, process automation in BPMS, and an introduction to process mining and basic process mining algorithms. A number of figures, examples and exercises accompany all the explanations. In particular, some exercises really help to consolidate the knowledge gained with the book, which makes them perfect for lectures.

This is a textbook written by four leaders in BPM education. It focuses on walking readers through the basic steps in process analysis and redesign. I wish the authors had taken a more expansive view of BPM. I wish they were
focused on getting new BPM students to think of themselves as business managers with a special perspective on how to organize an organization, and not as technicians who undertake specific types of projects.
That said, how does the book do within the constraints that the authors have set for themselves? As I have already noted, the book walks a student through the phases in a business process redesign effort. And the authors rely extensively on BPMN to explain how the flows and activities work together. The cases were well chosen, and many and detailed the diagrams provide a nice introduction to the use of BPMN. Each chapter presents a topic and then there are exercises that provide the student with a good chance to think about the information and apply it to other cases. I found the discussion of process redesign detailed and interesting.
Teachers will have to decide if this book introduces students to BPM as they would want to do it. I suspect in most cases it will, and assuming it does, I’m confident that teachers will find the support exercises very valuable. A harder question is whether a process practitioner would benefit from this book. It’s well written and provides a completely up-to-date introduction to the use of BPMN. Moreover, it provides a nice review of some of the latest software techniques available in BPMS tools, with a special emphasis on process mining. I would certainly recommend it to any process practitioners that wanted an up-to-date refresher on process redesign with BPMN.
