In today's dynamic business world, the success of a company increasingly depends on its ability to react to changes in its environment in a quick and flexible way. Companies have therefore identified process agility as a competitive advantage to address business trends like increasing product and service variability or faster time-to-market as well as to enable a close alignment of business with information technology. Along this trend, process awareness and service orientation have become prevalent paradigms in enterprise computing, and a new generation of process-aware information systems has emerged. Referring to real-world scenarios from various application domains, this lecture will present a review of fundamental flexibility and evolution challenges that exist for process-aware information systems. In particular, it will give insights into concepts, methods and technologies that foster flexibility in all phases of the process lifecycle.

A comprehensive treatment of this topic can be found in the Springer book on Opens external link in new windowEnabling Flexibility in Process-Aware Information Systems, which has been co-authored by Manfred Reichert and his colleague Opens external link in new windowBarbara Weber (University of Innsbruck).

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
