The paper develops a method for transformational implementation of business processes in service oriented architecture. The method promotes separation of concerns and allows making business decisions by business people and technical decisions by technical people. To achieve this goal, a description of a business process designed by business people is automatically translated into a program in Business Process Execution Language, which is then subject to a series of transformations developed by technical people. The transformations are selected manually and executed by an automatic tool. Each transformation changes the process structure to improve the quality characteristics. The method applies a correct-by-construction approach and defines a set of transformations, which do not change the process behavior.
