There are four parts to this video:
  • Process, Modeling, Design, and Architecture Overview. This first video in the series introduces basic process and architecture concepts. The importance of knowing and documenting business processes is explained, as well as the importance of identifying the value of each business process and the dependencies among the processes. The business process management (BPM) methodology is introduced as well.
  • Enterprise Level Modeling. This second video in the series covers the data and process artifacts that need to be produced at the enterprise level. Learn about a number of essential deliverables including the business concept model, value chain analysis, and process standards.
  • Process Level Modeling: Understand and Analyze. This third video in the series focuses on “doing the work”. We categorize business value in terms of exchanges, expectations, and experience and then cover process-centric measures in terms of agility, quality, effectiveness, and efficiency. Learn how to create Process Scope Diagrams, also known as IGOEs (Inputs, Guides, Outputs, and Enablers). Practice the basics of the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and create a series of process flows.
  • Process Level Modeling: Redesign and Implement. This fourth video in the series covers how to reverse a fishbone diagram to avoid risk, and how to find solution patterns. We discuss how to change business and operating models, and how to assess and test your models through scenario analysis.
