We look at interoperability with Goal Oriented Teams modelling, which includes an outsourcing paradigm as the means by which to link separate Business Processes. Although the framework proposes the Team Programming perspective for Business Process modelling, it also supports the notion that a role filler achieves its goals by outsourcing to an external Business Process model. The core capability, RemoteCoaching, provides the required separation between the Business Process model at intentional level and the interfacing technology that facilitates the actual connection to the external Business Process model. Following the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles, the outsourcing sub system is generalised to avoid practical constraints on the remote technology base, i.e., the remote Business Process model might be another Goal Oriented Teams (GORITE) model, or based on some other framework.
