A human centered functional division enables the user to choose between creative and non-creative tasks. Knowledge exploration as a creative task has to be done by the user, not by the machine.


New forms of organization, e.g. flexible division of work in a team, have to be supported by an innovative information management. The continuous change of business processes requires the use of information technological aids that meet this dynamics. However, today's IT tools support dynamic processes and organization structures only insufficiently. Being strongly related to the work design of the concerned co-workers, we have especially illuminated the human factors of system design. From that we developed the requirements on tools for the support of dynamic processes.
