"[an emergent process] is a process that unfolds or emerges as information or understanding is discovered. So, a knowledge worker sees an initial set of data or information. Based on this information, he or she will determine what other experts need to be involved and what workflow(s) need to be invoked. It is not a static process. This means that as things are discovered or emerge other experts and workflows may need to be used. Therefore, the process emerges or is emergent. Here we have an emergent process."

 
You can do all of this using any BPMS with decent support for BPMN 2.0. A "process" in BPMN doesn't need to be more than a non-related set of activities. Any number of these can be started in any order. Of course, not many people would call this a process. Which reflects the main problem with the idea of an "emergent process". It's really not a process, it's ad-hoc. Anyway, you can do it in BPMN.
