Business processes evolve throughout their lifecycle of change. Business Process Modeling (BPM) notations such as BPMN are used to effectively conceptualize and communicate important process characteristics to relevant stakeholders. Agent-oriented conceptual modeling notations, such as i, effectively capture and communicate organizational context. In this paper, the authors argue that the management of change throughout the business process model lifecycle can be more effectively supported by combining notations. In particular, they identify two potential sources of process change, one occurring within the organizational context and the other within the operational context.
