Business Process Management (BPM) provides the methods, tools and modelling notations to support a processcentric organizational view and management capability. As organizations grow in size and complexity, process improvement initiatives may involve change that has direct / significant impact across an organization. Thus, we provide methods and extensions to existing process modelling notations to analyse change against high- level models of the organization. Our approach permits improved analysis against higher-level organizational structures, motivations, inter-dependencies and capabilities that should be ideally considered as primary requirements during process design. Additionally, the organizational model becomes the ‘scaffolding’ with which to construct effective process architectures and management portfolios. This paper discusses our approach in the context of two modelling notations – the i* framework as an organizational modelling notation, and the BPMN notation for business process modelling.
