Performing Collections of Activities as Means to Business Ends

Denis Gagne, Trisotech. Depending on the organization’s type of business and desired operational model, daily activities may be performed with emphasis to simply get things done, do things right, or do the right things. To support most operational models, both prescriptive and descriptive process definition frameworks are required. In this presentation will show how prescriptive or descriptive collections of activities can be captured using standard notations (e.g. BPMN, CMMN).
