Self-organizing groups are one of the most flexible and complex type of business process adaptations. The actors of a self-organizing group have to communicate with each other and adjust their activities in order to attain a common goal. A major advantage of self-organizing groups is the possibility to leave parts of the process flow unspecified but define the corresponding activities at run-time based on dynamic coordination. In this publication we summarize the requirements of self-organizing groups and provide an approach on how to use an unconventional process engine to support the participants of self-organizing groups to manage their tasks.
