Business Process Management

More and more organisations are searching for ways to survive in a world with disruptive technologies, more regulatory compliance, and demanding customers. This is the reason behind Business Process Management’s Market Worth of 13.52 Billion USD by 2021. Corporate Process Management helps organisations to survive in a demanding environment. By identifying process bottle necks and loops and discovering inefficient patterns, organisations can focus on optimizing their processes towards a more flexible and efficient way of facing their challenges. From a knowledge perspective, most organisations do not have sufficient capabilities to carry out corporate process management. Or to deliver the functional requirements needed to successfully implement process management and information management systems. This training will give attendees the methodologies, insights, best practices, and instruments to describe, optimise, simulate, and monitor all business processes, thus helping the organisation to be successful.

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

This two-day programme will provide you with a practical framework which will help you to understand how to work with corporate process management. By working through practical examples in areas including stakeholder & change management, flowcharting, process modelling, and process notification, you will be able to optimise and monitor business processes, predict process outcomes, and model future business scenarios. This programme will help you to unlock the potential that the application of process analysis could bring to your business. It will introduce you to the key competencies and practical skills to actually carry out truly business process management.
