<p>Human process involvement has gained momentum in recent years, but the proposed mechanisms can't efficiently adapt Web-scale collaborative workflows. Here, the authors describe collaborative problem solving and its integration with process-support systems as an architecture comprising human components and connectors. This modeling of coordination and execution roles enables reasoning on workflow flexibility and appropriate adaptation actions.</p>
