The fast development of technologies requires specialized skills that need to be renewed frequently. For example, the semantic Web technologies related to knowledge centric organizations require specialized skills of the employees. In this paper, we present how such skills can be achieved by learning processes that are integrated to the tasks of the business processes of a knowledge centric organization. The gains of such learning processes are that they are just-in-time, tailored to their specific needs, and ideally integrated into day-to-day work patterns. In order to illustrate our approach we present an overview of the BPMN and show how it can be used for attaching learning objects to the business process diagram. Then we show how we attach metadata to the learning objects, called guides, and to the business process tasks. In order to standardize the used metadata items we have developed ontologies that give the semantics for the metadata items (keywords). The gain of using standardized metadata items is that it facilitates automatic integration of the learning objects and reuse of the learning objects
