The Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is an increasingly important standard for process modeling and has enjoyed high levels of attention and uptake in BPM practice. This paper reports on a global survey of BPMN process modelers conducted during May to August 2007. Five hundred and ninety BPMN modelers responded and provided insights into the who, where, how and why of BPMN process modeling as well as into some of the problems users experience when modeling with BPMN.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
