The course helps you understand and use BPMN language and also draw high quality process maps for various reasons ranging from improvement to system implementation. It is designed for process modellers, process and business analysts and process consultants and essentially anyone who is interested to know more about business processes.
You will learn about BPMN (Business process modelling notation) in details and will also understand BPM (Business Process Management) cycle. The software used is Ms. Visio but for those who do not have access to Visio free web tools are introduced. The course can be covered in about an hour.
Understand why BPMN is important, where does it come from and the applications of it in the business world
Develop familiarity with process models in BPMN format
Learn about tools that you can use for process modelling. We will cover Visio (2010 premium, 2013, 2016 and Pro for office 365) and Gliffy. I will also show you some free stencils you can download form the web if you are using an older version of Visio. Most of the software modelling tools are very similar to Visio and Gliffy and have exact or very similar logic built in them.
The basic pallet includes activities (tasks and sub-processes), different types of gateways (Exclusive, inclusive and parallel), and events (start, intermediate, and timer).
Different types of swimlanes (collapsed vs. expanded) are explained in this lecture. Also sequence flows and message flows are explained with some examples.
In this lecture, different tasks types including manual, user, service and script tasks are explained with referencing to BPMN literature.
Throwing and catching events can be confusing for a lot of modellers. The two are compared and explained with some examples and exercises.
In this section, you will learn about timers and their different usages within a process model, errors, interrupting and non-interrupting events.
In this section, you will learn about different artefacts such as data store, data objects and notations to highlight risks or pain paints. Some of them enrich the process model you are working on but they are not mandatory.
In this exercise, you will practice high level sub processes and boundary conditions.
In this exercise, event-base gateway, inclusive-or and parallel gateway are practiced. Also part of the exercise are system, user, sending and receiving tasks
Test your BPMN knowledge!
Hi there, My name is Jack Zadegan. I live in a very beautiful, vibrant city, Melbourne in Australia. One thing which I find very exciting is building online courses and educational material on technical and non-technical subjects. I have worked for more than 10 years in technical and non-technical consulting positions and I always keep reading, researching and testing new methods and ideas. I would love to share what I already know with Udemy students and make them as relevant and exciting as possible for them.
Briefly about my background, I am a certified Scrum Master, certified expert in BPMN 2.0., and hold qualification in MBA-Info Sys development, and an Electrical Engineering. I have worked both as a lead and a resource in a number of projects and initiatives, saved millions of dollars for different business and played an key role in the implementation of different systems.
If you have a suggestion for a topic for one of my courses, or need help with something, please don't hesitate to drop me a message. I may not always be able to help you directly, but I would still love to talk to you.
