Business Process Analysis & Modelling




Introduction:

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 course, 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.

Participants will learn the Integration Definition for Process Modeling (IDEF0) method and the Business Process Diagram notation. These are open modeling standards that are used by many leading business process modeling tools. They are easy to understand and can be applied to all aspects of business process innovation. These methods facilitate rigorous analysis, creative thinking, and the development of information technology systems

Targeted Groups:

  • Business Process Analysts, Engineers, Consultants, and Managers
