The IEEE Task Force on Process Mining aims to promote the topic of process mining. In the context of this task force, a group of more than 75 people involving more than 50 organizations created the Process Mining Manifesto. By defining a set of guiding principles and listing important challenges, this manifesto hopes to serve as a guide for software developers, scientists, consultants, business managers, and end-users. The goal is to increase the maturity of process mining as a new tool to improve the (re)design, control, and support of operational business processes.
