IT support for knowledge workers in their daily work can take many different guises: groupware systems and information access and retrieval tools support knowledge processes, while workflow management covers the support for rigidly structured processes. However, what is missing so far is an environment that integrates the business process and knowledge(More)
The FP5 European RTD project DECOR (Delivery of Context-Sensitive Organizational Knowledge) developed, consolidated, and tested a total solution for business-process oriented knowledge management (BPOKM), including a business process analysis method and tool, a business-process oriented intelligent knowledge archive system, and a workflow enactment, tightly(More)
We shortly motivate the idea of possible IT support business-process oriented knowledge management (BPOKM) and sketch some basic approaches to achieve this goal. Then we describe the DECOR (Delivery of context-sensitive organisational knowledge) project, which develops, tests, and consolidates methods and tools for BPOKM. In the DECOR project, three(More)

New information and communication technologies facilitate the introduction of innovative(More)
