Coordination techniques in BPM, Social, ACM, etc.

Considering the definition of a process as “explicitly-defined coordination of services to create a particular result” this post shows how some explicit coordination techniques (rows) are employed by different “methodologies”  (columns) for managing the business by processes.

A combination of some of them may provide "predictive analytics".

Ideally   like in the chess game – use must the right combination of coordination techniques in a particular case at the particular moment. But, not all process-centric tools offers all coordination techniques.
