In the domain of Business-To-Business (B2B) collaboration, companies are pursuing the objective of electronically linking their business processes for improving their supply chains. For creating such inter-organizational collaboration, Intra- and Inter-organizational Knowledge Workers (IKWs) function as assisting experts. However, IKWs must not constantly \"Reinvent the wheel\" but should instead be supported by a repository that contains knowledge about how to design business processes. Thus, this paper proposes the support of IKWs by a pattern repository for the effective and efficient design of inter-organizational business processes.
