SPECIAL ISSUE SCOPE
Due to the dynamic economy of the changing global market, enterprises  
and their organizations need to be more agile, adaptive, transparent,  
and capable of change and adaptation. In order to support business  
innovation, enterprises and their organizations need to be  
systematically analyzed, designed and engineered. The often-used black- 
box knowledge (focus on behavior and function) of enterprises and  
their organizations might be sufficient and adequate for running the  
business, but, to innovate and transform the business, a white-box  
approach (focus on construction) is required.

The studying of enterprises and their organizations as artifacts  
requires methods to analyze, design and engineer such artifacts. A lot  
of work has already been done in the area of enterprise models, i.e.,  
defining notations for describing the different aspects of  
organizations and the application of these notations. In this special  
issue we set the focus on methods defining how to analyze, design and  
engineer enterprise / organizational artifacts.

The construction of enterprises and their organizations has been  
designated as business engineering, enterprise engineering and  
organizational engineering, just to mention a few designations. In  
this context, engineering refers to a rather inclusive study  
comprising analysis, design and engineering. Regardless of the  
specific approach, enterprise and organizational engineering is  
complex activities consolidating different views, encompassing  
processes and sub-processes scattered within and beyond the enterprise  
boundaries, and representing the envisioned artifacts with different  
levels of abstraction. This complexity requires innovative and  
integrative techniques such as collaborative, participative and  
interactive modeling.

SUGGESTED TOPICS
The following topics are suggested in the scope of this special issue  
as discussed above:
- Analysis, design and engineering methods for enterprises and their  
organizations
- Guidelines for organizational analysis, design and engineering methods
- Frameworks for organizational analysis, design and engineering methods
- Theoretical foundations for organizational analysis, design and  
engineering methods
- Evaluation of organizational analysis, design and engineering methods
- Correlation between analysis, design and engineering methods and the  
resulting result representation models
- Collaborative, participative and interactive aspects of  
organizational analysis, design and engineering
- Collaborative, participative and interactive modeling (CPI Modeling)
- Organizational analysis, design and engineering case studies
- Organizational analysis, design and engineering principles
- Interplay between organizational analysis/design/engineering and  
enterprise models/modeling
