Abstract : We aim to introduce a new approach, called "Behavioural Sphere", for flexible business process modelling and execution. One principle of such approach is to provide management flexibility for group-based behavioural properties such as transactional, operational or organisational properties. These properties concerns not only single activities but also groups of activities. Current business process models, setting properties at single activities level, do not allow the expressiveness of group-based behavioural properties. The first contribution of this thesis proposes a solution allowing us to define "Behavioural Spheres" to make a separation of concerns between process design and group-based behavioural properties definition. We contribute to define correctly the main principles of such solution and we analyse the impact of behavioural spheres on the flexibility of modelling and execution of business processes according to different behaviours. The second contribution concerns the case study of the isolation property as a particular behaviour in business process management. We define the notion of "Isolation Sphere" and we propose details on its characteristics in terms of cohesion and coherence, which reveal two new serialisability criteria. The third contribution of this work concerns the study of cooperation phenomena engendered by cooperative activities execution and we detailed how isolation spheres make it possible to manage such phenomena with more an more flexibility. Finally, the last contribution of this work concerns a proposal of behavioural sphere implementation in web services platforms. This is possible through adaptations made on the modelling part of such platforms, which is represented by the BPMN notation, and an extension of the execution part of web services platforms, which represents the WS-Coordination coordination contexts coupled with BPEL execution language. The implementation proposal covers all the parts of web services platforms, from the modelling to the execution.
