This edition of the Workflow Handbook provides you with a valuable insight into the revolution in business process management and the attendant benefits currently underway as eBusiness opportunities increase. The Workflow Handbook has been designed as a one-stop source for organizations seeking or already committed to implementing workflow systems as part of their IT and EC strategy.

The Workflow Management Coalition has worked strenuously for the adoption of standards throughout the industry. Standards allow organizations that have more than one workflow system to connect them easily. They provide a fertile environment for workflow component development to grow and flourish, giving a rich array of options for user organizations. Most importantly, standards provide an infrastructure for inter-organizational process automation.
