Abstract. The process lifecycle systematizes the method of implementing and managing business processes in the organization. Due to changes in the social culture and the availability of technologies, the process lifecycle are also undergoing constant changes. The aim of this article is to analyze the direction of these changes and to propose a new process lifecycle, which would account for the requirements of the knowledge economy. The article presents an overview of relevant literature on managing the process lifecycle. In the second part, it discusses changes to the principles of holding business operations, which are increasingly more limiting with respect to the scope of using traditional process management. In the third part, the article proposes an updated the business process lifecycle, which would adjust the lifecycle to observed business changes and make use of emerging ICT solutions. The proposed process lifecycle guarantees the coherence of the implementation process in KE.
