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.

Get Your Ticket For Process Mining Camp on 21 June 2023 Now!

Process Mining Camp 2023

Process Mining Camp 2023 is coming to the TU/e campus in Eindhoven on Wednesday, 21 June — and you can reserve your seat now!

Come for a day full of inspiring practice talks from professionals who apply process mining for all kinds of use cases — from process improvement, over auditing, to customer journey analysis. After a refreshing lunch, join one of our workshops. Here you can dive into a process mining topic of your choice, in depth, together with a small group of fellow campers.

We are finally ready to share the detailed program for this year’s camp here, and we think you’re going to love it!

A lot of people who have come to their first camp tell me afterward: “That was really nice!” And I reply: “I know!” So, if you have been on the fence, wondering whether camp is the right place for you, or whether you’ll fit in – the answer is, most likely: Yes!

Process Mining Camp has always had a very special atmosphere, a certain vibe. Here is what, for me, sets camp apart – what makes it different from other events and conferences:

  • Camp talks go deep. In their practice talks, our speakers show you what they have been doing, including tips and tricks, but also stumbles and mistakes. They are not peddling corporate success stories, but they want to share their personal, professional development. And, more often than not, you will find a lot to take home into your own practice.

  • The speakers are one of us. They use process mining just as you do. They have often attended camp themselves in the past, and they are eager to share their story with all of you. And of course they’re here for camp like the rest of us, to learn from people like you.

  • The attendees are all process mining professionals themselves. You can talk to anyone, and you can be sure to learn something. A discipline like process mining thrives on the lively, open, and friendly exchange between professionals. This is what camp is all about!

  • You are in the arena. Join one of our workshops in the afternoon, and expand your practice hands-on. But also in the Q&A after talks, in the hallway, and in the lunch, dinner, and coffee breaks – you will find that camp is, most of all, the community meetup for process miners like you. It is all about sharing your ideas, questions, and experiences with other process miners.

Early bird tickets are available until 17 May, but don’t wait and secure your ticket right away! We have limited seats because we want people to have the chance to really get to know each other.

Food and drinks are included. With the return of last year’s popular BBQ at the end of the day, we will even have our own little campfire. You will leave, maybe a little tired, but certainly inspired, and with new friends in the community.

Don’t miss Process Mining Camp 2023 and sign up now. Whether you are a beginner, or you have been working with process mining for many years – I am sure you will go home with lots of relevant insights for your own work.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to let us know by email to, or however you prefer to get in touch.

We can’t wait to see you all in Eindhoven on 21 June!

How to Add Statistical Capability to Your Process Mining Analyses

In the latest Process Mining Café, Rudi and I got together with Jan van Moll and Muthuvelan Varadharajulu from Philips Healthcare for a very special episode.

We talked about their application of process mining to quality management processes. But on top of that, we also showed a concrete approach, in which Muthu and Jan have extended their process mining analyses with the so-called process capability index (Cpk).

The Cpk is a statistical measure that captures the ability of an engineering process to produce an output within specification limits. By doing that, it says something about the likelihood of meeting a target in the future based on the consistency of past values.

In the cafe, we showed based on a concrete process mining example how this works. And you can even try the approach yourself by using Muthu’s template (see links below) for your own analyses. Let us know how this works out for you via or contact Muthu and Jan directly via LinkedIn or per email.

If you missed the live broadcast or want to re-watch the café, you can now watch the recording here. Thanks again to Jan and Muthu and all of you for joining us!

Here are the links that we mentioned during the session:

Process Mining Café Podcast

Process Mining Café Podcast

It has been almost three years ago now that our Process Mining Café first went on air. Back then, it was our daily meetup during Process Mining Camp 2020, where we had the previous day’s speakers back on for a Q&A – it was a place to relax, kick back, and catch up with all the campers.

We decided to keep going with the café after camp, because it just worked so well. Compared to an annual event like camp, the café is much more lightweight for everybody involved, and it is free to explore the boundaries that would probably be too off-topic for camp. In short, it’s quality process mining time with interesting people, but you don’t need to put your life on hold to participate.

Today, by popular demand, we bring you an even more light-weight way to check into our café sessions. You can subscribe to the café audio feed, wherever you like to get your podcasts:

Podcasts are perfect for when you have some time, but you need your eyes elsewhere. So whether you want to spice up your workout or your commute, or you need a friendly companion for walking the dog or tending to your garden: The café podcast feed has you covered.

Thank you for checking back with us and being a regular in our little café – Good to have you, and see you again soon!
