The IEEE Task Force on Process Mining has published the Process Mining Manifesto. The manifesto contains an overview and introduction to process mining, followed by guiding principles and challenges that the field is facing today:
Process mining is a relatively new paradigm and [..] therefore this manifesto catalogs some guiding principles and challenges for users of process mining techniques as well as researchers and developers that are interested in advancing the state-of-the-art.
The CEBPI staff was fortunate to be a founding member of the IEEE Task Force and we have happily participated in the development of the manifesto. Process Mining is a module in both our general Business Process Management and our new Process Analytics course. The manifesto is a very good starting point for anyone who wants to gain an overview of Process Mining. You can download the manifesto here.
