Abstract

This paper introduces advances to the topic of business goal modeling. The major guidelines to the presented work are the increasing of representational power of goal models, the introduction of goal achievement indicators and the development of a methodology for capturing goals and associating them with business processes. Increased representational power on goal models can be gained by introducing management theories’ concepts like measures and indicators and the business stakeholders and pressure groups.
