Our 9 Favourite BPM Websites and Blogs for 2015

Got a tenth BPM Blog you'd like us to add to the list? Let us know @TorqueBPM

While we love reading our own BPM Blog, we're big fans of some others too. Looking through some online lists of the best ones to follow, we realised many are posting less regularly, (if at all) in the last few years and while they're worth looking back at, it seems to be the nature of blogs that when other things come up in life, they can be left to one side. Other bloggers and writers have also left the medium behind in favour of micro-blogging sites like Twitter and sharing insights and news there in a shorter snappier way.

The list we've put together covers both individual writers/consultants along with bigger, more 'magazine stye' blog sites that bring in numerous contributors. Altogether, the list should keep you very well informed this year and on into 2016. 

1. IRM Conncets

Topics cover everything from Enterprise Architecture, IT Strategy and IT Management to Business Analysis and Data Management. Website | Twitter
