This book is for business people who want to understand the how and why of BPMN 2.0 in simple non-jargon terms and the strategy and motivation for its adoption within the corporation.
It is also for the technical practitioner seeking current insights into the BPMN 2.0 standard and how to take advantage of its powerful capabilities.
Authored by members of WfMC, OMG and other key participants in the development of BPMN 2.0, the BPMN 2.0 Handbook Second Edition assembles industry thought-leaders and international experts.
The authors examine a variety of aspects that start with an introduction of what’s new and updated in BPMN 2.0, and look closely at interchange, best practices, analytics, conformance, optimization, choreography and more from a technical perspective.
The authors also address the business imperative for widespread adoption of the standard by examining best practice guidelines, BPMN business strategy and the human interface including real-life case studies. Other critical chapters tackle the practical aspects of making a BPMN model executable and the basic timeline analysis of a BPMN model.
In addition to free bonus chapters from the latest edition and extra material supplied by authors, the BPMN 2.0 Companion website contains BPMN and XPDL Verification/Validation files, webinars, videos, product specs, tools, free/trial modelers etc. This gives readers exposure to a larger resource on BPMN 2.0 and XPDL than a book alone can offer.

Reference Guide—XPDL 2.2: Incorporating BPMN 2.0 Process
Robert M. Shapiro, WfMC Technical Chair and XPDL Technical Committee, USA
XPDL2.2 is intended as a preliminary release which supports the graphical extensions to process modeling contained in BPMN2.0. In fact, the BPMN specification addresses four different areas of modeling, referred to as Process Modeling, Process Execution, BPEL Process Execution, and Choreography Modeling. In this reference guide, we focus only on Process Modeling. Within that we define several sub-classes to support process interchange between tools. This is discussed in a later section of this paper. Here we discuss significant additions in XPDL 2.2.
