Styles in Business Process Modeling: An Exploration and A Model
Business process models are an important means to design, analyze, implement, and control business processes. As with every type of conceptual model, a business process model has to meet certain syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic quality requirements to be of value. For many years, such quality aspects were investigated by centering on the properties of the model artifact itself. Only recently, the process of model creation is considered as a factor that influences the resulting model's quality. The authors' paper contributes to this stream of research and presents an explorative analysis of the Process of Process Modeling (PPM).
