Workarounds in Business Processes: A Goal-Based Analysis [chapter]

Nesi Outmazgin, Pnina Soffer, Irit Hadar
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Workarounds in business processes and information systems (IS) have attracted research attention in recent years. Deviating from official processes, workarounds are goal-driven adaptations.  ...  The premise taken in this paper is that workarounds are often motivated by misalignments between organizational goals, goals of local-units and actors, and the business process that should realize these  ...  Our approach differs from previous ones in proposing a systematic goal-based analysis with the aim of revealing the problems that motivate workarounds.  ...

A Workaround Design System for Anticipating, Designing, and/or Preventing Workarounds [chapter]

Steven Alter
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
A WDS includes a process and an interactive "workaround design tool" (WDT) for identifying and evaluating foreseeable workarounds based on work system theory and a theory of workarounds.  ...  This paper proposes a workaround design system (WDS) for anticipating, designing, and/or preventing workarounds that bypass systems as designed.  ...  To accommodate all of the different types of situations in which workarounds occur, the theory of workarounds is based on the following definition of workaround: A workaround is a goal-driven adaptation  ...

Dealing with Risks and Workarounds: A Guiding Framework [chapter]

João Barata, Paulo Rupino da Cunha, Luís Abrantes
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing

A Situational Perspective on Workarounds in IT-Enabled Business Processes: a Multiple Case Study

Nina Röder, Manuel Wiesche, Michael Schermann
2014 European Conference on Information Systems  
Our analysis reveals that employees utilize workarounds based on a risk-benefit analysis of the situational context.  ...  Workarounds are still one of the most puzzling phenomena in business process management research and practice.  ...  More recent approaches define workarounds as goal-driven changes to defined routines in business processes (Alter 2014) .  ...

Workaround Aware Business Process Modeling

Nina Röder, Manuel Wiesche, Michael Schermann, Helmut Krcmar
2015 International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik  
We exemplify how this technique can be used to model a workaround in the process of accessing patient-identifying data in a hospital.  ...  Therefore, this study provides an extension to the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) by conducting a metamodel transformation, which includes workarounds.  ...  Other than this, our goal is to describe deviations in processes where it is not clear if the workaround is either improving or hindering the business process.  ...

Pattern Mining in System Logs: Opportunities for Process Improvement [chapter]

Dolev Mezebovsky, Pnina Soffer, Ilan Shimshoni
2009 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
In "vanilla" implementations it is possible that the newly operational business process requires many additional steps as "workarounds" of the system limitations, and is hence performed in an inefficient  ...  Enterprise systems implementations are often accompanied by changes in the business processes of the organizations in which they take place. However, not all the changes are desirable.  ...  In such situations, a typical scenario would be that the newly operating business process is still capable of achieving its operational goal, but requires many additional steps as workarounds of the system's  ...

Intentional Process Mining

Rebecca Deneckère, Charlotte Hug, Ghazaleh Khodabandelou, Camille Salinesi
2014 International Journal of Information System Modeling and Design  
Understanding people's goals is a challenging issue that is met in many different areas such as security, sales, information retrieval, etc.  ...  The originality of the contribution lies in the demonstration that it is actually possible to reverse engineer the underlying intentional plans built by people when in action, and specify them in models  ...  Acknowledgment We would like to thank Sébastien Sion for the development of the first version of the webbased tool, and the Master and Bachelor Miage students for participating in the experiments.  ...

Patrick Boudreau, Dragos Vieru, Gilbert Paquette, Michel Heon
2016 2016 49th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)  
In this paper, we propose a theoretical framework that is based on the idea that the integration of workarounds in the workplace represents a process of knowledge management.  ...  It also suggests that the use of a socio-technological tool that allows the building and sharing of workarounds by employees will help foster the creation and updating of knowledge in the organizational  ...  A workaround represents a goal-driven change to an existing work system in order to overcome a technical or an organizational constraint [8] .  ...
