Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Communication Modeling (CM)
International Workshop on Communication Modeling
1-2 July 1996
The communicative action perspective of business processes and information systems has attracted much attention recently. A viable approach in this area is: Action Workflow. This paper investigates the use of Action Workflow as a generic business framework, relating it to the alternative Business as Action game Theory. The latter provides a more exhaustive description of various business actions. Action Workflow is also related to the SIMM approach with Action Diagrams, an action modelling method. A communicative action expansion of this method is suggested in this paper. A discussion is performed concerning the relations between generic business frameworks and action modelling methods.
