Business process management is an area of research that integrates computer science, information systems research, operations management and management science. This richness of perspectives is a benefit and a burden at the same time. This talk introduces an integrated view of business process management and investigates which research perspectives are fruitful to investigate particular facets. For each of the three identified perspectives, we point to established research standards that help to organize and position one’s own research paper in the area of business process management.
