The field of Business Process Management (BPM) has evolved considerably over the past decade. Many proposals for business process modelling and/or execution have emerged and some of these have faded into oblivion again. The Workflow Patterns Initiative aimed at achieving a more structured approach to language comparison and development. The patterns that were distilled served as the basis for YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language). In this paper YAWL is positioned with respect to historical developments in BPM and current challenges in the field.
