The shortage of skilled IT-staff as well as the technological possibilities offered by Service-oriented Architectures (SOA) and Web 2.0 applications, leads us to the following consequences: working processes, job engineering and labor organization are going to be modeled and therefore made digital in the sense of IT-support. This goes along with modeling working processes being independent from the individual employee in areas to be rationalized resp. not to be staffed by qualified specialists. Hence, there will be a worldwide net based selection of those who are able and skilled to fulfill modeled work like e.g. “handling a damage event” or “creating an optimized data structure for master data” by means of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) in the most effective and efficient way. An enterprise will therefore neutrally manage its modelled work processes (HB-services) and IT-services (application programs) taking place as computer supported work equipment in any working process being located anywhere in the world without assigning it first to a specific performer (natural or artificial actors). By doing so it is possible to control and dynamically execute working processes globally based on the division of labor, and on a data base supported administration of “bills of activities” (work plans) by means of the World Wide Web. All that requires new and dynamic – in the sense of component based – job descriptions and other work equipment exceeding today’s established skill and task management by far.
