This paper is a contribution towards a theory-driven, exploratory empirical investigation of process modeling practice with the industry standard BPMN. The authors perform a representational analysis of BPMN using an ontological representation theory. Furthermore, they discuss a series of semi-structured interviews with BPMN adopters in order to explore the use of this technique empirically. They identify several representational issues related to the practice of modeling with BPMN, for example, the capture of business rules and the specification of process decompositions.
