From Goal-Achievement to the Maintenance of Relationships: Extending Business Process Models with Homeostasis and Appreciation

Gil Regev

Abstract

We use homeostasis, the maintenance of steady states in an organism, to explain some of the decisions made by participants in a business process. We use Vickers’s Appreciative System to model the homeostatic states with Harel’s statecharts. We take the example of a PhD recruitment process formally defined between a faculty member, a graduate student candidate and a doctoral school. Our analysis uncovers some hidden process scenarios. As a result, these scenarios can be integrated into the process model and eventually taken into account by the process supporting software.
