This paper begins by describing the evolving environment towards greater adaptability in today’s business processes and the limitations of current methodologies in providing ways to support such processes. Support systems require ways to integrate social connectivity and interactivity into business processes in ways that enable the process to be dynamically changed. The paper describes models that identify requirements for such systems and convert the models to lightweight implementations that support flexibility. It uses ideas from complexity theory and social patterns to create the models.
