Reading and Understanding BPMN

Course description

Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is quickly becoming the new standard for describing and modeling processes. It is one of the few languages that can be used for both displaying business processes and technical process modeling.

Are you a project manager and have to access your employees' results? Are you a software tester and need to create test scenarios based on modeled processes? Do you prepare documentation or need to verify IT concepts? Or do you simply want to find out more about the de facto standard for process modelers?

This course will teach you about individual BPMN elements. Find out how to read and understand business process models to open your eyes to the world of describing and modeling processes.

At the end of the course you will be able to read and understand basic BPMN diagrams. You will recognize BPMN symbols and be able to verify and assess diagrams and their content.
