Current research and practice in business process modeling corroborate the belief that quality issues are still not addressed with the necessary diligence here as, for instance, in the area of requirements engineering. Our position to be discussed is that the continuous traceability of quality issues could lead to more adequate processes and systems. To underpin this position, we develop an initial meta-model that shows how quality goals, business processes, and quality requirements for the involved systems are intertwined, and how they influence each other. Based on this meta-model, we present a hypothesis on what adequacy means and how the adequacy of business processes and software can be determined.
