Evolving business needs call for customizable choreographed interactions. However, choreography descriptions do not capture the problem-domain knowledge required to perform the customization effectively. Hence, we propose performing the customization to models of organizational requirements motivating the interaction. To facilitate the derivation of the resulting choreography description, we propose an alignment between conversations and organizational dependencies. We employ the domain knowledge and formal semantics of requirements models to find customization alternatives and reason about them. Using the alignment, we derive constraints on conversations systematically from customized requirements models.
