CONTENT OF THE COURSE
The context for business process modeling
This module explains why we model business processes. It also defines different concepts important to business process modeling. Additionally, the hierarchy of business processes – enterprise, event-response, and actor-task levels – is introduced.
Modeling at the Enterprise level
This module explains the context diagram for business processes – an organization model. Students will build an organizational level model for a given scenario to get more affinity with this technique. In this module we explain relationships between processes, including these at the same level and across hierarchy levels. We also discuss how the processes on the organizational model support the delivery of the value proposition.
Modeling at the Event-Response level
This module covers selected business process modeling techniques from UML, explains the notation – actors, tasks, process flows, decisions, fork, join, etc. Finally, we explain the difference between internal performance measures and customer expectations of performance.
Modeling at the Actor-Task level
This module teaches how to identify tasks and construct a task description. We will document the steps and business rules with a task with UML activity diagram and in structured English.
Improving business processes
This module teaches how to identify problems with the AS-IS business processes and analyze the process flow, handoffs, and tasks. This module also focuses on staff performance issues and modeling the TO-BE business processes. We explain how to use business scenarios to identify combinations of conditions that the improved business process will need to handle.
Managing and implementing change
This module explains how the process of introduction of the new process can be facilitated within an organization.
