This two-day EXIN/BCS Modeling Business Processes course provides qualifications for professionals who wish to know how to deal with business processes on different levels of the enterprise starting on the organizational level and ending on the work instruction level.


This workshop is relevant to anyone performing business process modeling activities or is interested in extending his competencies in this direction.


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 – organization, process, and task levels – is introduced.

The organizational context for business processes

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 the business processes

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.

Documenting tasks

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.
