Business processes in dynamic environments are often subject to disruptions, forcing organizations to change their processes. This gives rise to the question how and when such process change should be considered during the process lifecycle and how it could be anticipated in order to decrease response time. In line with recent proposals to study the extrinsic drivers of process change, we seek the reasons for modifications outside the typical process environment and derive several process change strategies. Future work will describe the relation between external events and these strategies to yield ameliorated and truly flexible process designs.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
