Recent research activities in the field of TEL have created a new awareness for intelligent learning infrastructures. To foster the usage of innovative TEL in the workplace, it must be integrated into organizational business operations and aligned with their learning requirements. Being the semantic interface of organizational ICT infrastructure, business processes represent the potential linkage between learning and business IS. Today, most organizations and their supporting ICT systems have incorporated processes as central objects of control. They manage their businesses along their processes, starting with process design over process execution up to process control and monitoring that feed back into improved business process design. As this process lifecycle has become the central instrument of BPM, it lends to be the vehicle for a businessintegrated learning management. This paper aims to position the thesis of a reciprocal relationship between business and learning processes being the prerequisite for prospective integrated workplace learning.
