The Discipline of Business Modeling

Autoři příspěvku: Steve Baker and Cedric Tyler, opublikovali v roce 2005 na portále BPMTrends pozoruhodný článek, který ani po 3 letech neztratil na významu. Cituji z textu nejzajímavější část:
"How do we create this discipline?
We propose that the discipline is comprised of the following four pillars – i.e., areas of study:
1) A Business Modeling Language: A “language” to describe the elements (elementalinformation components) of a business. The language must be complete, simple, and rule-based.It must have a syntax and semantics. It must be easily understood by a majority of the business.
2) Information Gathering/ Knowledge Harvesting Methods: A set of methods that describeshow to leverage the plethora of existing corporate information (including explicit, implicit andtacit), and convert or extract the elemental business information into the business modelinglanguage.
3) Language Application (or Re-use) Methods: A set of methods for using these businessinformation models for all corporate initiatives. Whether it is a strategy, a product, processimprovement, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, or a new IT system – all corporate initiatives mustoperate from the same elemental understanding of the business as described in the businessmodeling language.
4) Business Modeling Suite (Automation): Finally, to truly leverage the complexity andinterrelatedness of the business information, we need to employ advanced technology to capture,store, analyze and use it."
