ERNACT led ARCTIC PACER clustering project has collected a series of good practices from the participating projects in Northern Europe.

This week we present you a practice successfully tested in the BitStream II project, the method for business modelling, intended to communicate the understanding of a problem among different actors, supporting analysis and planning on management and employee levels. It has been used to enhance common understanding and problem-solving abilities between groups of people in the organizations participating in the project.

Our partner Mikael Söderström from Umeå University (Sweden) explains that this is the main method for innovative business development that BitStream II has developed. “It is based on an expanded version of the approach in Eriksson & Penker’s book, ‘Business Modelling with UML’ (2000), and the Unified Modelling Language (UML)”. This method consists of the model types: context, concept, goal/problem, process, and collaboration. “The method focuses on simple graphical models that communicate well and that can be developed by employees, thereby supporting a bottom-up approach”, he adds.
