Social BPM (BPM) is widely discussed in the scientific and business community. While the interest to the topic is elevating, the potential and benefits of employing Social BPM remain vague and ambiguous. This paper discusses these problems and elaborates on two different approaches of Social BPM: external and internal. Internal approach is about designing and modeling business processes inside the organization by all employees, who are insiders to the processes, while external is about participating and listening to all stakeholders such, as employees, current customers, potential customers, competitors and suppliers. We examined emerging markets, particularly Russia, to evaluate the spread of Social BPM there. The practice of integrating such tools in National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow, Russia) is presented and the research was conducted to estimate stakeholders’ attitude to the system.
