Business Process Management for commoning

The Emergent Systems Group initiated a workshop in the framework of the 10th conference of Subject-oriented Business Process Management (S-BPM), hosted by the Johannes Kepler University Linz (see photo from LinzWiki), with the intent to extend the focus of innovative approaches to business process management and to include commoners that share common good resources in commoning relations. It was the first time that representatives of the business process management community, in particular, of the systems development paradigm S-BPM, and representatives of the community of the Economy of the Common Good (ECG) which comprises about 400 companies met in an academic environment.

Participants of the workshop that took place on 6 April 2018 could agree that the subject-orientation of business process management offers a tool that can be used to help understand, assist and guide transformations towards processes that enact greater respect for the commons. The workshop under the title Towards Common Process Understanding in Collective Welfare gave evidence of the feasibility of a future fruitful joint research programme.
