Do Process Modelling Techniques Get Better? A Comparative Ontological Analysis of BPMN Jan Recker1 Marta Indulska2 Michael Rosemann1 Peter Green2 1Faculty of Information Technology Queensland University of Technology Brisbane, Queensland, Australia Email: {j.recker, m.rosemann} 2UQ Business School University of Queensland Brisbane, Queensland, Australia Email: {m.indulska,} Abstract Current initiatives in the field of Business Process Management (BPM) strive for the development of a BPM standard notation by pushing the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). However, such a proposed standard notation needs to be carefully examined. Ontological analysis is an established theoretical approach to evaluating modelling techniques. This paper reports on the outcomes of an ontological analysis of BPMN and explores identified issues by reporting on interviews conducted with BPMN users in Australia. Complementing this analysis we consolidate our findings with previous ontological analyses of process modelling notations to deliver a comprehensive assessment of BPMN. Keywords Business Process Management, BWW ontology, Business Process Modelling, BPMN INTRODUCTION Business Process Management (BPM) has been identified as the number one business priority, and building Business Process Capability is seen as a major challenge for senior executives in the coming years (Gartner Group, 2005). The interest in BPM has, among others, triggered substantial academic and commercial work aiming towards advanced business process modelling solutions. One of the most recent proposals for a new business modelling technique is the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) 1.0, which was released in May 2004. Though BPMN is not yet an official standard, there is a cl
