    ABOUT THIS SESSION:

    The Business Process Modeling Notation is a popular choice for representing processes and can be used for both organizational process improvement and Information Systems design purposes. While it provides a rich syntax for the capture and representation of processes, it does not provide any guidance for the organization of the resulting models. As a consequence, large process libraries may become disorganized and hard to manage due to variability in abstraction levels, process interfaces, and activity descriptions. Based on the analysis of a process library in a US government agency we describe the development of design guidelines and a process architecture for the systematic organization of BPMN models for different stakeholder concerns.

    Takeaways:

    • How to choose a modeling standard for your organization
    • How to organize large process libraries
    • How BPM and Enterprise Architecture can work together
