This BPMN training course teaches the use of the Business Process Modelling Notation v2.0 for business process analysis, mapping and modelling within the context of a business process management (BPM), improvement or re-engineering strategy. Industry best practice is taught for business process modelling at every level of abstraction. The models produced can be traced through to the requirements for any kind of computer system. Each technique is taught to the level required for competence on a real project. Understanding is tested with exercises based on a real-world project example either using a suitable BPMN modelling tool or on paper.
Business Consultants, Business Analysts, Business Process Engineers and System Analysts with at least 2 years experience. This course is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
Course attendance is limited to 12 students. Courses start at 9.30am on the first day, 9.00am on subsequent days and finish at 5.00pm each day. Students normally use a computer for the exercises, but these can be performed on paper if required. For a discussion on using a BPMN modelling tool please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. Printed course manuals for each student with copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions are provided.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate venue, refreshments, XGA/WXGA projector and screen, whiteboard or flipchart and at least one computer per two students loaded with a suitable BPMN modelling tool, unless exercises are to be performed on paper. For a full discussion of on-site course issues please see On-Site Course Logistics.
This course is available as scheduled public training at our London Training Centre. Students bring their own laptops for use on the course. Please see the Public BPMN and UML Training Courses in London page for details.
