Abstract—This work presents a method to bridge the gap between intentional process modeling and business process modeling. The first represent the business objectives of an enterprise and the strategies used in order to achieve these objectives, while the second concentrate on the business processes. The proposed method uses MAP as an intentional modeling language and Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) as a modeling language for the business processes. We propose to translate the strategic goals expressed with MAP model into a BPMN process diagram. We show that an alignment of the intentional model (MAP) with BPMN can support the designers in transforming easily the strategic goals into business operational goals. We also show in this work, an example illustrating the use of our mapping.

Index Terms—intentional process modeling, MAP, business process modeling, BPMN, mapping
