This article presents a multi-dimensional approach to the development of an organic business process architecture. It covers the scoping of a modeling initiative as well as techniques for business decomposition and process definition. It goes beyond the basic concepts of hierarchical process decomposition and shows how analyzing processes in terms of a key set of business dimensions including ownership, value and information improves process standardisation and lowers the level of complexity across business operations. It is aimed at business leaders, architects and analysts engaged in BPMS initiatives. This content is part of the IBM Business Process Management Journal.
