We had the same kind of requirement that an admin in system can update the workflow at any time.

The solution we provided was as we know jBPM supports the version number for process definitions and whenever an admin makes updates to the workflow, the updated workflow will be saved with new version number. Admin has to choose whether the system should go with the executions of older version which is already created for the users or should go with the new version. If it is with new version, admin user has to force close all the executions for the old version and then allow the system to create the new instances for workflow with latest version, for all the users.
This is the workaround we provided in our system for client requirement.

Applying workflow updates on the fly to the running executions(process instances) is not supported by jBPM.
