Business Process Modeling Notation - 1 or 2 Day Course
For organizations seeking to harness a formal, industry standard notation for specifying their business processes using the Enterprise Architect tool.
Why Choose this Course?
Are Visio flowcharts not cutting it for your projects? Are you seeking a more precise and consistent way to describe your business processes? This BPMN™ course will allow you unambiguously specify every aspect of your business (or other) processes, including their choreography, events, messages, participants, flows, etc.
The Business Process Modeling Notation™ (BPMN™ 2.0) course teaches participants how to leverage this standard graphical language for specifying (business) process models.
A formal BPMN™ process model mitigates the ambiguity often associated with narrative specifications, and provides the source from which, optionally, executable BPEL specifications can be generated.
The one-day course covers the core notation of BPMN™, while the two-day training delves deeper into the notation, including the executable aspects of the language, and comprises an end-to-end exercise.

Who Should Attend?
This one-day or two-day course caters to business/system analysts, enterprise architects, and domain experts. The course is of value to any process modeler who is looking to work with a standard, versatile, and up-to-date business process notation.
This course helps participants respond to the growing demand for business process models that can not only reside in the same metadata repository as other software development artifacts, but also be explicitly traced to these artifacts.
Furthermore, BPMN™ diagrams modeled with sufficient detail and precision can be used to automatically generate BPEL (Business Process Execution Language) or other process execution languages.
