Many of today’s dominant global businesses have achieved their successes by being better integrated, better coordinated, better focused than their competitors. Many of their leaders attribute these characteristics to a process orientation; top management explicitly designed an organizational structure reliant upon integrated processes to coordinate the efforts of the organization. That coordination and that process structure are built upon and reliant upon software process models. Business colleges can ill afford to ignore this growing phenomenon. The integrated business structures and practices should be reflected in an integrated, process focused curriculum. This paper will attempt to justify the business process focus and will then propose a model curriculum based on that process focus.
