Description

Learn how to model business processes.

This course will teach you how to review a process and document it using industry standard UML diagrams. It will also show you how to analyse that model for flaws and identify areas for improvement. After that it will show you how to implement those improvements in a controlled way.

By the end of this course you'll be able to go into your organisation and make improvements to those business processes. Along the way you'll produce clear, documented work that will really impress those senior managers and show them that you can help them improve the organisation.

This course aligns to the syllabus for the British Computer Society's Modelling Business Processes exam which means not only can it be used as a study guide for that exam but also for those people taking it as a stand alone course it provides assurance that it follows an industry standard methodology.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for students that want to know how to model business processes and improve them
  • This course is for students wanting to learn the skills of a Business Analyst
  • This course is also for Business Analysts looking to improve their skills
