Essential BPM + BPMN 2 Applied™: Enterprise Architect™ edition

COURSE ID: WS-LBPME-EA
DESCRIPTION: This introductory Business Process Modeling (BPM) + BPMN 2 workshop provides students with a solid foundation for applying Model-Driven Development principles and best practices with BPMN 2, the industry standard for modeling enterprise business process workflows. The workshop teaches students how to solve practical problems using all BPMN 2 diagram types. Learning modules are punctuated with frequent Q&A sessions and hands-on practice exercises. For Business Analysts and Solutions Architects who find value in BPMN + UML integration the workshop includes optional training segments that show you how to integrate BPMN Business Process Diagrams (BPDs) with UML Use Cases for capturing functional requirements, and UML Class diagrams for specifying logical data models.

This BPMN workshop edition is customized to integrate basic modeling tool training with Sparx Enterprise Architect (Sparx EA), an award-winning modeling tool.
DURATION: 3-5 days (= 21-35 training hours; length depends upon optional learning modules selected)
VENUE: Available Onsite or Online.
AUDIENCE: Business Analysts, Solution Architects, Software Developers, System Architects, Project Managers, and others who want to learn how the BPMN 2 can improve how they analyze and manage enterprise business process workflows will benefit from this workshop.
PREREQUISITES: Business Analysis or Software Analysis experience in analyzing and managing enterprise business processes. No other experience or prior training is required.
COURSE AUTHOR & CHIEF INSTRUCTOR: Cris Kobryn is the Founder of PivotPoint Technology and is an internationally recognized expert in architecture modeling languages (UML, SysML, BPMN), enterprise architecture frameworks (DoDAF, UPDM, TOGAF), and Model-Based Engineering tools. Cris has been architecting and designing distributed computer systems for three decades, and is known for successfully leading the UML 1.x, UML 2.0, and SysML international standardization teams. Recently Cris designed the CyberML™ (Cyber Modeling Language™) to precisely specify Agile enterprise architectures that are scalable and cybersecure.
