Relating Business Process Models to Goal-Oriented Requirements Models in KAOS
Business Process Management (BPM) has many anticipated benefits including accelerated process improvement, at the operational level, with the use of highly configurable and adaptive “process aware” information systems  . The facility for improved agility fosters the need for continual measurement and control of business processes to assess and manage their effective evolution, in-line with organizational objectives. This paper proposes the GoalBPM methodology for relating business process models (modeled using BPMN) to high-level stakeholder goals (modeled using KAOS). We propose informal (manual) techniques (with likely future formalism) for establishing and verifying this relationship, even in dynamic environments where essential alterations to organizational goals and/or process constantly emerge.
