Introduction to BPM 2015-09-04T08:31:43+00:00

Introduction to BPM, sometimes called BPM 101, provides a basic introduction to all aspects of BPM today: BPM as a management discipline, as a methodology for improving work, as a set of tools and technologies. Students get a brief taste of the topics we cover in the deep-dive BPMessentials courses – BPMN Method and Style, Starting and Organizing a BPM Project, and Analyzing and Optimizing BPM Processes. We also discuss enterprise BPM, including process frameworks like SCOR and ITIL, the process maturity model, and functions of a BPM center of excellence.  It’s a great way to introduce your whole team to the concepts, features, and benefits of business process management.
