"You’ve modelled and now what?" : Exploring determinants of process model re-use
Nolte, Alexander, Bernhard, Eike, & Recker, Jan (2013) "You’ve modelled and now what?" : Exploring determinants of process model re-use. In 24th Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS 2013), 4-6 December 2013, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia.
Business process modelling as a practice and research field has received great attention over recent years. Organizations invest significantly into process modelling in terms of training, tools, capabilities and resources. The return on this investment is a function of process model re-use, which we define as the recurring use of process models to support organizational work tasks. While prior research has examined re-use as a design principle, we explore re-use as a behaviour, because evidence suggest that analysts’ re-use of process models is indeed limited. In this paper we develop a two-stage conceptualization of the key object-, behaviour- and socioorganization-centric factors explaining process model re-use behaviour. We propose a theoretical model and detail implications for its operationalization and measurement. Our study can provide significant benefits to our understanding of process modelling and process model use as key practices in analysis and design.
