Workshops at Process Mining Camp 2023

Process Mining Camp 2023

For every summer camp, there comes a time when you pull up your sleeves, grab a shovel, and do your part.

At Process Mining Camp, you won’t have to do the dishes, but you can become actively involved and contribute your own experience and perspective. One perfect place to do just that is in one of our three very distinct afternoon workshops:

  • Our first workshop is a discussion workshop that continues after Franck, Ruth, and Mithra’s talk. You can share your experiences and discuss all aspects of process mining in audits and beyond, including ethics and professional standards.

  • In our second workshop, you go into problem-solving mode. Based on our 12-step process mining project framework, you will work in small teams on developing the right project plan for different cases.

  • Our third analysis workshop lets you dive into typical process mining analysis questions with hands-on practice. Bring your laptop! You will receive a training license from us if you don’t have a Disco license yet.

The workshops are running in parallel, so you can only join one. Choose the workshop you want to attend when selecting your camp ticket here.

Here are the full descriptions of the workshops at Process Mining Camp 2023.

Workshop 1: How can you use process mining for audits?

Workshop 1 at Process Mining Camp 2023

Process mining does not replace the traditional audit approach. However, it requires some changes and a conscious effort to fit process mining into the existing way of working. In some places, more work is needed. In other places, things get easier.

The goal of this discussion-based workshop is to share openly and learn from each other. You will talk about process mining in auditing and internal control. Discuss your approach, challenges, and questions with other auditors, compliance officers, and risk managers, and exchange your experiences to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your internal control systems.

Franck Diafouka, Ruth Zonanashvili and Mithra Sophie Gruber enthusiastically work for the Internal Audit function at the European Medicines Agency and have established a Working Group on Process Mining across several EU bodies.

Workshop 2: How do you make a proper project plan for process mining?

Workshop 2 at Process Mining Camp 2023

Achieving your process mining goals requires a solid approach to getting things done. However, there is no one single cookbook for every process mining analysis. Each project could require a different approach to solve certain challenges or eliminate risks of failure.

In this workshop you will learn what the key deliverables are for a process mining project. Work out the best approach given particular technical or organizational conditions, and discuss what you could or should do when these conditions change. A practical and fun way to share experiences and learn the best practices.

Rudi Niks has been one of the first process mining practitioners. He has over ten years of experience in creating value with process mining. At Fluxicon, he ensures that Disco miners are the best process miners in the world.

Workshop 3: What questions can you answer with process mining?

Workshop 3 at Process Mining Camp 2023

When you start out with process mining, you often wind up in some kind of chicken-and-egg dilemma: You are supposed to start with questions about your process, but which kinds of questions can you actually answer with process mining?

We will give you 20 typical process mining questions as a starting point, and we will show you how to answer them. In this workshop, you will work hands-on with multiple data sets to understand the different approaches for measuring your process performance, analyzing compliance, and answering other process mining questions.

Anne Rozinat is the co-founder of Fluxicon and working with process mining every day. She has obtained her PhD Cum Laude in the process mining group at Eindhoven University of Technology, and she has given countless process mining trainings over the years.

Which one are you going to pick?

All three workshops are an excellent way to process what you have learned, and to set the next steps for your own process mining practice. You will come away with new insights and actionable knowledge that you can use immediately.
