Overview

Business process models play a central role in analyzing, simulating, and executing business processes. They serve as a communication vehicle for professionals with different background and expertise, ranging from business administration, quality management, and organizational development to systems architectures, and software development.

This online course introduces concepts of business process modeling and decision modeling using the industry standards Business Process Model and Notation, BPMN, and Decision Model and Notation, DMN. Participants will learn the elements of process models and decision models and their precise meaning. To strengthen the practical value of this course, two BPM tool vendors will join this online course. Signavio will provide practical aspects related to decision modeling and simulation of business processes. Camunda will cover process execution by providing concepts and methods to develop executable business processes. During the MOOC, these vendors provide free-of-charge access to their software.

The course covers concepts to describe and analyze business processes and decisions, and to simulate and enact them using modern BPM tools. It does not cover methods on how to model, improve, or monitor business processes. Still, a deep understanding of business processes and decisions is a useful basis for these activities as well.

Alex completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
This is a straight forward delivery with minimal workload. Take screen caps of the diagrams for a wonderful reference and wonderful set of examples for your BPMN needs. Overall delivered what I need, a recap of BPMN at an intermediate level.
