National implementation of the GSBPM at Statistics Sweden

The Business Process Model used at Statistics Sweden is fully compatible with the GSBPM although there are some differences, both consciously and happenstance. There has been a lot of discussion internationally on the need to define the GSBPM on a finer level of detail. At present the consensus view is that there is little to be gained from this at the same time as it would risk creating a lot of unproductive discussion and debate rising out of national differences and personal taste. This is a view fully supported by Statistics Sweden. Nevertheless we would like to share what we have done in this area noting that the 3-digit level and below is not part of the official definition but rather used out of practical purposes.
