At Signavio, we're proud of our success and growth as a company. After all, change and growth are fundamental to success, both in business and in life. But we know the next ten years will be different—not to mention the ten years after that—and we will have to do things differently too. Backed by some amazing people, we're looking forward to it!

Celebrating success

We’ve been celebrating our tenth birthday, looking back at a decade of change for Signavio, as well as the last ten years of process management. We’ve crunched the Signavio numbers, and we’re proud of how far we’ve come as a company.

We're firm believers that even when things are challenging (or perhaps especially when things are challenging), it is important to celebrate success, whether that is the achievement of a long-term goal, or something more immediate. In fact, acknowledging the "little" wins is what helps build momentum for big changes within an organization.

Preparing for change

As Signavio Co-founder and CEO Gero Decker points out, “If you asked people ten years ago about change, they would tell you, “Oh yeah, we have those projects. They last for two years, we shuffle stuff around, and finally, once it’s over, we can focus on doing business again. Today, if you ask people about change, they will tell you: ‘We’re changing the whole time’.”

Signavio’s mission of ‘BPM for everyone’ has always been strongly linked with change: Changing the way people think about business processes, changing the way organizations do business, and changing companies themselves for the better.

The power of process…and people

In the video above, we touch on several topics fundamental to what we do: Laying the process foundations of enterprise-level RPA, helping to manage risk and compliance, and mapping the customer journey, to name a few.

But any of these projects, whether carried out alone or as part of a wider business transformation, rely on one common resource. People. Without dedicated, knowledgeable, passionate people, none of the change organizations seek will ever be fully realized.

That’s why we’d like to end out birthday celebrations for 2019 with a thank-you, to all the people that have been part of the Signavio journey. To our supporters and stakeholders, our wonderful partners, our incredible team of employees, and of course our fantastic customers, thank you.

We couldn’t do it without you. See you at our 20th birthday!
