Course description

This course builds on the methods and techniques introduced in the CEG course, Introduction to Business Process Modeling, Analysis and Design. It uses the same basic model and approach, and assumes a familiarity with basic modeling techniques. It provides information about advanced analysis, measurement and redesign techniques. Where the first class stresses basic diagramming and analysis techniques, this class examines advanced techniques. We will, for example, consider where Lean techniques are best employed, how to model customer processes, and how to capture business rules. This class will consider a new case study and give students a chance to work through the entire case study. We will drill deeper into some aspects and consider how automation and human performance technology can be employed to solve some of the more complex problems encountered in the redesign.

Who should attend

This class is designed for business, process and systems analysts, designers and architects with some process project experience who are interested in improving their knowledge, understanding and skills in order to be able to solve more challenging process problems. This session is intended for individuals who have participated in process improvement projects and wish to expand their knowledge and capabilities. This course assumes that participants have taken the BPM Professional Curriculum Courses Principles of BPM and Introduction to Business Process Modeling Analysis and Design, and are familiar with the BPTrends Associates methodology, basic analysis worksheets, process scoping and BPMN modeling.
