    Modeling Business Strategy: A meta-model of Strategy Maps and Balanced Scorecards
    Giannoulis C.Petit M.Zdravkovic J.
    Business strategy is aimed to support the vision of anenterprise, by paving the way to achieve it through goals thatdirect the strategy’s execution. However, there is a lack of means to establish and assess the alignment of business strategy andgoal oriented requirements engineering. The objective of our ongoing research is to model business strategy in order to establish well-defined and traceable links with system requirements. In this paper, we propose a business strategy metamodelfor Strategy maps and Balanced Scorecards. The validity of the meta-model is tested through a case scenario using OWLand Telos.

    Towards a Goal-Driven Approach for Business Process Improvement Using Process-Oriented Data Warehouse
    Shahzad K. & Giannoulis C.
    An emerging approach for business process analysis is to usebusiness intelligence practices by employing data warehouse and decision making techniques. However, little work has been done on developing coremethods and tools to guide process analysis and improvement. Our researchaddresses this issue by introducing a goal-driven approach for business processimprovement using process warehouse. In this paper, we present our three stepmethod and its evaluation through an empirical study. The results showed thatthe impact of applying our method for process improvement has been perceived positively. (Full paper here)

    Modeling Competition-Driven Business Strategyfor Business IT Alignment
    Giannoulis C.Petit M.Zdravkovic J.
    Business strategy aims at supporting the vision of an enterprise,by paving the way to achieve it through goals that direct thestrategy’s execution. Aligning business strategy to system requirements requires explicit models from both business strategy and requirementsengineering. However, existing business strategy definition approachesare informal and their syntax is based on natural language, therefore,they cannot be used in model-driven alignment. An objective of ourresearch is to define a well-structured business strategy modeling language.In this paper, we propose a business strategy meta-model basedon Porter’s work on competition driven strategy and its extension byStabell and Fjeldstad. Our UML meta-model is formalized in Telos and OWL. An initial validation is performed by instantiating the meta-modelusing a case scenario. (Full paper here)
