Fundamentals of Business Process Management

Shared by: by Marcello La Rosa on September 28, 2016: 08:06 CEST


This MOOC, authored by Marlon Dumas, Marcello La Rosa, Jan Mendling and Hajo Reijers, introduces the discipline of Business Process Management (BPM) by working through each phase of the business process lifecycle. It covers mainstream techniques and tools for process identification, discovery, analysis, improvement, automation and monitoring. It also shows how to apply these techniques and tools to a range of examples and case studies that show the power of BPM in practice. An optional verified exam will lead to a certificate of achievement issued by Queensland University of Technology.

In addition to lectures, interactive tasks, quizzes and an optional project, the course will feature special appearances by Michael Rosemann talking about innovation and strategic alignment of BPM, Anne Rozinat introducing the Disco process mining tool and Wil van der Aalst reflecting on the status and directions of process mining.

Participants will also have the opportunity to practice their skills hands-on using Signavio (for process modeling), Bizagi (for automation) and Disco (process mining). Access to these tools will be offered to all course participants during the course.
