Conceptualise Enterprise BPM
Following Analyst Driven Strategy

This guideline suggests to observe the current context of the enterprise and to model it using enterprise business process models.

Perform the following activities

Techniques and tools
Observe the current state of the enterprise  Top managers and/or domain experts interview The observation of the current state of the enterprise is required to understand the enterprise processes, to identify actors and resources which are involved, the dependencies between actors and the business objects which are used in the enterprise processes. 
Define actor/role diagrams
EKD Actor/Role 
modelling editor 
This activity leads to the description of business processes by identifying collections of responsibilities (each such collection constituting a role) and the organisational entities (the actors) that fulfil these responsibilites. The dependencies (authority, resource, goal) between involved roles are also described.
Define role/activity diagrams EKD Role/Activity modelling editor This activity completes the description enterprise processes by detailing how roles are organised in terms of activities in order to achieve the enterprise objectives. Each role is thus analysed in a sequence of activities that the respective actor performs in playing the role.
Define class/association, state transition and event diagrams EKD Enterprise Object 
modelling editor
This activity aims to define first business objects which are used in the enterprise processes. Then event diagrams describing the impact of what happens in the enterprise on these objects are produced. For instance, for a new connection request a new account is created.  Finally, for each identified object, its life-cycle describing the state changes induced by these events are described in a state transition diagram. 
Check consistency between static and dynamic views of business processes.   This activity verifies if objects required for the performance of business processes as described in the role/activity diagrams are defined in the class/ association diagrams, if all operations triggered by events described in event diagrams correspond to activities described in the corresponding role/activity diagram...

The organisational maturity of modelling and the degree of «participative» involvement are low;
the organisational culture is hierarchical; and the external pressures are known.
