Excellent article in Bruce Silver's blog
Came across this article in Bruce Silver's BPM Watch blog about organising complex BPMN models. He details the use of a VISIO tool add-in for such a hierarchical organisation, but I think more can be done. Visualisation researchers have long been looking at real-time traversal of graphs, like the large social network graph image in this blog entry, and their hierarchical structures. These methods I believe can be modified to suit the tasks required by BPM stakeholders; from users to modellers, each with their idiosyncratic requirements.
Makes me excited that other people are seeing such needs, and are looking for improved tools.
