Item description for Perspectives on Business Modelling: Understanding and Changing Organisations by Anders G. Nilsson...
How can established models and methods be employed for the understanding and change of organisations? One of the key issues presented in this book is bridging the communication gap between business leaders and IT experts in companies and public services. This is facilitated by combining different models for the development of corporate strategies, business processes and information support. The leading idea behind this book is to present different perspectives on business modelling, based on established theories and practical experiences. The book offers advanced knowledge and relevant information on the key issues in business modelling for today`s organisations.

For experienced business modelers - short on technques Jun 19, 2002
This book is not about modeling techniques. Instead it's a compendium of papers that address the underlying issues and factors related to business modeling from the point of view of business imperatives and requirements. The papers are grouped in three parts: (I) Development on Different Levels, which addresses foundation material in the form of case studies that underscore the value of process modeling for specific companies; (II) Exploration of Different Points of View, which covers aspects of modeling techniques at a high level with an emphasis on IT and business alignment; and (III) Description of Different Aspects, which covers specific tools and approaches.
Each paper is written by a subject matter expert, and each exposes key factors that need to be considered when selecting and using a particular modeling technique. Techniques are not addressed in detail; however, as an analyst who uses both UML and IDEF0 I found that the book supports those two widely divergent methods. This is because of the focus of the book, especially with respect to organizational change and business-to-IT alignment that are addressed in Section II, and the tools and checklists provided in Section III.
The ideal audience for this book is someone who is experienced in one or more modeling methodologies, with a good understanding of business processes and technology integration. Readers who are new to business modeling will be frustrated by the diversity of the topics and the absence of techniques. The experienced modeler, on the other hand, will find this book to be a treasure trove of facts and information.
