When BPM meets World of Warcraft?

I came across the following blog article today:

http://blogs.wsj.com/biztech/2008/09/29/how-to-make-business-more-interesting-video-games/?mod=googlenews_wsj

According to the article a San Francisco State University professor is intending to teach students about BPM by immersing then into a virtual world where they can study tasks and use technology to improve them. 

I think anything that gets more people involved with BPM is a good thing.  Currently there does not seem to be enough human resources capable to deliver all the BPM work that is required and I feel we are still in the early days of BPM adoption.  BPM spending is suppose to double over the few years depending on who you believe (Gartner, Forrester, Butler etc) and this will mean we need a lot more BPM practicioners in a very short amount of time.

I still don’t think the guys at Blizzard have much to worry about.
