Business Process Modeling Notation
Models as representations of real world entities may appear to the novice to be an unnecessary abstraction. Indeed, in small organizations where there are relatively few processes, there is little need to this paper activity. When it comes to large organizations, with hundreds or thousands of processes, the creation of models becomes an essential activity. Even if the process itself does not change in the form of new process re-engineering efforts or new applications, there are new employees and contractors who must learn how things work to become effective new members of the organization's human resource team.
