“This book is a good basis for a solid university course at the level of master education and post-graduate education. It presents the results of more than ten years of research in the area of process mining and its applications. … I would definitely recommend this inspirational book for research students of universities.” (Ella Roubtsova, Amazon.com, June, 2015)
“Based on decade-long research on process mining at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, van der Aalst presents in this book the purpose, role, methods, and tools of process mining. … It is best suited for mathematically mature graduate students and researchers. BPM practitioners need to study this book, too, because it introduces crucial business process improvement, conformance, and optimization concepts.” (Don Chand, Computing Reviews, September, 2011)
From the Back Cover
More and more information about business processes is recorded by information systems in the form of so-called “event logs”. Despite the omnipresence of such data, most organizations diagnose problems based on fiction rather than facts. Process mining is an emerging discipline based on process model-driven approaches and data mining. It not only allows organizations to fully benefit from the information stored in their systems, but it can also be used to check the conformance of processes, detect bottlenecks, and predict execution problems.
Wil van der Aalst delivers the first book on process mining. It aims to be self-contained while covering the entire process mining spectrum from process discovery to operational support. In Part I, the author provides the basics of business process modeling and data mining necessary to understand the remainder of the book. Part II focuses on process discovery as the most important process mining task. Part III moves beyond discovering the control flow of processes and highlights conformance checking, and organizational and time perspectives. Part IV guides the reader in successfully applying process mining in practice, including an introduction to the widely used open-source tool ProM. Finally, Part V takes a step back, reflecting on the material presented and the key open challenges.Overall, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art in process mining. It is intended for business process analysts, business consultants, process managers, graduate students, and BPM researchers.

Almost 90% of the resources that I have referred to trace back to Eindhoven Netherlands. Wil van der Aalst seems to be the father of process mining
At the end of the book, three chapters present a summary based on a real outline of the application of tool/technology.
The Challenge is that very few people really understand the "Wider Scope". Process Mining is a Technique to Determine the Actual Interactions. Once we can Generalize and Understand those Actions, we can improve.
I like the fact that ProM can import and export BPMN 2.0 Compliant XML. BPMN 2.0 Swim Lane Diagrams enables one to Understand each Role in a Holistic Sense and Petri-Nets to analyze them mathematiclly. So, one has the blend of Business Focus and analytical Focus.
