Abstract

In preparatory stages of an upcoming cross-company cooperation an integration project has the task to establish best possible connections between relevant organizational units. Therefore the integration of company sub-divisions willing to cooperate has to be accomplished under the conditions of insufficiently pre-evaluated management specifications, limited project time and resources as well as strongly diverging requirements of affected operating departments. Existing approaches of cooperation and process management support integration projects by delivering methodological proceedings and tools, but paying not enough attention to the explicit search for operative processes and their integration under specific project restrictions. Within this article on the one hand the need for strengthening the paradigm of process orientation in cooperation projects is pointed out, and on the other hand an additional, practical instrument for process integration is offered. The authors introduce a holistic proceeding, that enhances existing solutions of today’s cooperation management by adding the key success components: inter-organizational process identification and process integration.
