This chapter describes how structured and unstructured business processes and their properties morph out of relationships, when information on the flow of time is added. It integrates business rules, processes, and inference into a single cogent and holistic information based ontology of meaning, tying, them to business goals and agility. The chapter shows how product and process innovation may be partially automated, and how processes and goals may be engineered to support business agility.
