Process development has become vital for enterprises operating in an increasingly dynamic business environment. As business process models represent boundary objects between technology and business operations they need not only be able to capture all essential information required for executing business processes, but also for the situational context of agile Business Process Management (BPM). Of particular interest are aspects such as: What is triggering changes? What are the targets of an organizational move? Which impact could it have on the business operation? Although several categories of BPM approaches have been established, the situational context of organizational change has only been tackled rudimentary on the level of representational requirements. In this contribution we discuss existing concepts to represent situations and their capability to support the modification of business operations on-the-fly. Furthermore, we exemplify an integrated representation approach enabling situated subject-oriented BPM.
