Business Process Management (BPM) is a well researched scientific area and also established in practice. It is founded on the insight to overcome a department-isolated view of the enterprise and it fosters an enterprise-spanning understanding of the relationship between tasks and its synchronization. Thus, BPM mainly focuses on intra-corporate business processes. However, business processes have changed over the past few years. More and more enterprises work in close co-operations with other companies. Collaborative, work-sharing ways of production are constantly becoming more important. Outsourcing (of business processes) is one of the hot topics in the last years.
