Process modeling is a foundational skill required for the implementation of a complete Business Process Management capability. The methodology and notation used when documenting business processes are extremely important for standardization. With a standard process modeling notation and methodology, process objects can be reused, models can be read and understood across business units and process modelers can work across modeling projects without restraint.

Real IRM’s Generic Process Modeling Course teaches delegates foundational process modeling concepts as well as the importance and benefits of a well thought-out approach. The course covers the well-known process modeling standards and notations and includes a look at the considerations faced when embarking on a process modeling initiative. Although the course does not teach delegates how to use a specific modeling tool, it does include exercises in MS Visio and a full day assessment to consolidate the learning.

Intended for

Those starting out as: Process Modelers, Business Analysts, System Analysts, Business Architects, Solution Architects, Enterprise Architects, Information Architects


Some MS Visio experience is required. Each delegate will work on a laptop on which MS Visio is installed.
