    Abstract

    Process modeling is an essential part of software process improvement. This article aims at expanding the dominant paradigm of processes modeling where the organization's operations is seen as an idealistic mechanistic process. Our view is that enhancement of the process improvement practices requires re-evaluation of the main concept, that is the process view. Process philosophy and system thinking is offered to expand the perspective. Modeling involves essentially the ability of the modeler to abstract, i.e., the ability to look at the modeling object from a chosen point of view, and thereby distinguish and conceptualize the properties considered relevant to the purpose of the modeling.
