    I thought it would be benefitial if we added related business KPIs to the scenario descriptions. Business KPIs enable you to measure whether you run your respective process in a good or bad way. Since we already have a very rich and comprehensive repository of business KPIs inside BPX, I just added some links.

    Please let me know what you think. I might add additional KPIs to other scenarios as well...
