Description :

Business Process Modeling delivers essential insights into your organization’s processes. Modeling allows you to understand and analyze your business processes, enabling you to improve, optimize and transform them.

During this course we will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to understand the main elements of the BPMN 2.0 (Business Process Model and Notation) norm and to create BPMN models with clear process logic that can be shared across your organization.


This course is suitable for those who are interested in documenting and improving business processes; business analysts, functional analysts, process managers, architects, product managers, …
