Business Process Management Methodology

  • Mathias WeskeEmail author


The methodologies chapter completes this book. It starts by looking into the dependencies between business processes, based on their supplier/consumer relationships, formalized as process landscapes. These dependencies are instrumental not only for business processes of several partners that interact with each other, but also for business processes that are performed within a given organization. The methodology introduced can be used to better understand these dependencies and thereby improving the business processes.
