Mendling's research focuses on the question how business processes can be efficiently and effectively supported by information systems. To this end, Mendling and his team address questions of the information technology as well as of managerial questions.
Within the framework of business process management they developed a series of technical solutions for process mining and also management tools like the BPM Billboard.
The expertise of Mendling and his team is summarized in the seminal textbook "Fundamentals of Business Process Management", which is used by over 250 universities in 70 countries.
