In order to restructure the global economy in a sustainable manner, the integration of business engineering-related legal standards is fundamental. Today, these legal standards are mature and can help in the transformation of traditional business environments to become a part of the newly interconnected global economy. An important factor in continuously transforming a traditional business environment into an innovative and lean business engineering services-oriented business environment are the roles of the business transformation manager (BTM) and the needed business transformation framework. This framework is also needed to support the business environment's legal integration in the globalized environment.

An BELA Component can be used in various business transformation and business engineering fields and this component is the main focus of this research phase. The BELA is a part of the Control and monitoring module (Cm). The Cm is in turn a part of the Selection management, Architecture-modelling, Control-monitoring, Decision-making, Training management and Project management Framework (SmAmCmDmTmPmF, for simplification in further text the term Environment will be used), that supports various aspects of BTP’s activities. In this article the authors present a set of BELA managerial recommendations and a reusable pattern in the form of an (e)transaction legal support reference architecture (ISO, 2000; ISO, 2007; Trad 2015c; Trad c). The Environment’s BELA must be synchronized through the architecture development method’s phases, where each building block circulates through the architecture development method’s phases. The building blocks contain sets of CSFs (Sugumaran & Lavanya, 2014). These CSFs can be applied for: 1) the selection of the BTMs; 2) the implementation of BTP’s architecture and modelling strategies; 3) the decision support system, in order to estimate the actual status of the BTP and to decide whether to stop or continue the on-going project (Gartner, 2013); 4) the control and monitoring engine with the needed BELA mechanisms; 5) the training needs of the BTP’s team; and 5) the project management module’s support.
