To be successful at Management, executives, managers and all employees must be able to understand, consider, cost, analyze, and improve Business processes. Many Business processes, particularly large complex processes, present special challenges with a multitude of details.
To undertake successful analysis of these processes requires detailed Business modeling techniques, emphasizing discipline and structure. Fortunately, there are a number of advanced process modeling and analytical tools and techniques to assist in conveying information about these processes and in the Management of these Business processes.
Process modeling is the real workhorse of any Business Process Management effort, allowing Business processes to be represented in diagrammatic form for detailed analysis and measurement. Process modeling provides the semantics, syntax, construction procedures and rules to ensure quality in the Business modeling effort.
To make a "positive and successful difference" in the Business Process Management efforts in their organizations, executives and managers must encourage all individuals to understand, actively participate in and positively contribute to the Business Process Modeling and Analysis efforts.
This seminar will help all individuals in Business and Information Technology to better understand Business Process Modeling and Analysis by gaining insights into process modeling and analysis concepts and principles, including IDEF modeling techniques; the development of process architectures; scoping the process model; modeling Business processes, rules and costs with different techniques, including IDEF; criteria for measuring Business Process Performance; use of modeling and analytical tools and techniques for the "AS-IS" and "TO-BE" process models; and various software tools for process modeling and analysis. These issues will be reinforced with detailed examples.
