Back to Training Courses Learning Objectives Audience Outline

Course Summary

Typically the root cause for BPM failures is not the choice of specific techniques, notations or tools. It is the failure to understand and apply the principles consistently well. This half day overview will focus on the fundamental building blocks of BPM from process architecture to implementation of change.  For those getting started this overview will provide you with the knowledge you will need to understand the basic concepts of Process Management. If you’re already experienced, it will provide an overall comprehensive framework to pull together the components of BPM into a more integrated whole that is repeatable and shareable. Since there is a critical need to shift the management of organizations from the traditional functional perspective to a business process one that delivers value for our stakeholders a solid foundation is required. It will be those organizations which can manage and measure their business performance through processes that will excel in the dynamic environment of the present and future. It is those people that can apply the baseline aspects of BPM who will excel and grow within them.
