Networks are replacing hierarchical models in many aspects of our society, and the world of business processes has to adapt to this. Instead of designing consolidated flows that are believed to address the constraints of all parties involved, organizations will capture the individual constraints of all stakeholders, and business processes meeting these constraints are automatically inferred.

    • Ownership  Consolidated  flow  design  has  no  natural  owner,  as  it  represents  no  one’s  ‘real  stake’  In  constraint-­‐based  approach,  each  stakeholders  constraints  can  be  captured  explicitly
