BPMN Training

Business Process Model and Notation

BPMN is the industry standard for business process modeling, whether for simple documentation, analysis, or executable implementation.  With the introduction of BPMN 2.0, now officially released, any process modeling tool not based on BPMN should be considered “legacy” and “proprietary.”  But few modelers know how to use BPMN correctly or effectively. BPMessentials shows you how. Not just compliant with the spec but armed with a concrete methodology and consistent modeling style.  Get started today with our BPMN training, either online/on-demand via Flash video, or live in a classroom setting. We offer hands-on exercises, and certification that demonstrates mastery.




About the training

The training content was developed by Bruce Silver, well-known BPM industry analyst and consultant, author of the book BPMN Method & Style and the popular BPMS Watch website, and is copyright Bruce Silver Associates.  It may not be reproduced or used without permission of Bruce Silver Associates or BPMessentials.

The Tool

The training includes hands-on experience using Process Modeler for Visio from itp commerce.  A 60-day license to the tool is included with the training, and students may upgrade to a permanent license at a substantial discount if purchased through BPMessentials.   A add-in to Microsoft Visio, the de facto standard for process modeling, Process Modeler for Visio stands out by its support for the BPMN 2.0 palette and XML, import of externally defined processes, and – most important for BPMessentials – built-in Method and Style validation.  BPMessentials training v5.0 requires Process Modeler 5, service release 5 or later.
