Business Process Forum Taps Stevens Expert as Moderator

Dr. Michael zur Muehlen, associate dean for graduate programs at the Howe School of Technology Management, will moderate a panel discussion on intelligent business processes this week at the fifth annual Business Process Management and Technology Innovation Forum, held by FSO Knowledge Xchange.

The forum, which will take place Sept. 16 at the Yale Club, in New York, attracts high-level executives and senior managers in banking, insurance and asset management, and focuses on adopting agile approaches to business and technology management, leveraging new opportunities using collaborative tools, reaping the rewards of intelligent business processes, partnering for operational excellence, building a Big Data and analytics framework and aligning business needs with technology realities.

That’s right in zur Muehlen’s wheelhouse. The associate professor at the Howe School of Technology Management specializes in researching management and information systems to improve business processes and improve organizational efficiency. He studies how organizations evolve their operational and decision-making processes as they grow to determine best practices in business process management. His research in this area has been published in Business & Information Systems Engineering and Information Systems, among other respected journals, and zur Muehlen is the director of the Center for Business Process Innovation at Stevens, which further investigates these issues.
