POEM Mission: Allow enterprises to react immediately to changes in business policies.

Approach: Use computational logic and semantics to construct a virtual enterprise physics in which the business policies stated by managers act like "physical laws" to ensure that the right actions always occur, as soon as they are added.

Strategy: Leverage the emergence of web services as a new fundamental software engineering technique by using deductive synthesis techniques and ontologies to synthesize, dynamically, processes and workflows that can be conventially managed.

Tactics: Find focused valuable applications and first synthesize use case process instances that can be used in conventional process engineering. Increasingly generalize, minimizing the use of conventional techniques.
