  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP,volume 17)

Abstract

Collaborative business processes are a special kind of (conventional) business processes. Both describe the synchronization of a set of activities that are distributed over different units. In the conventional case, these units all belong to the same organization. Here the purpose is to increase the degree of transparency up to a maximal degree (that makes sense from an economical point of view). At the end the organization can decide how to set up itself in order to comply in the best possible way to its objectives, often to increase customer benefit or efficiency.
