About the course
Business process analysis and modeling is an essential component of Business Process Redesign (BPR) as well as other business process improvement initiatives such as reengineering, systems development, quality management and continuous process improvement. In this workshop the participants will acquire the knowledge and skills to analyze and accurately model business processes at the enterprise level as well as the detailed workflow level.
In this course delegates will acquire the knowledge and skills to map and model business processes at enterprise level as well as detailed workflow level.
The course also provides a step-by-step approach to effectively analyze processes to ensure that business process models accurately reflect reality and includes stakeholder requirements.
Delegates will learn the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). This is a widely-used, open modeling standard that combines business-friendliness with the precision required to effectively implement and automate business processes. It is easy to understand and can be applied to all aspects of business process innovation.
Practical analysis and modeling work using the techniques is done throughout the course.
Business process analysis and modeling are important because:
- The accurate description of business processes requires rigorous analysis
- Business process models provide a baseline from which to improve
- Analysis and modeling facilitates improvement through uncovering anomalies, redundancies and deficiencies
- Models provide the basis for studying and testing a process design and measuring process outcome
- Business process models transform ephemeral knowledge into a tangible business asset - reusable models that all can understand
- Models provide clear business process definitions for the effective operation of the business.
This course aims to enable participants to achieve the following objectives:
- Understand business processes and their components
- Apply process analysis concepts and techniques
- Define processes using Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN)
