We still have space available in our upcoming BPMessentials BPMN Method and Style live-online class December 3-5 from 11am-4pm ET/5pm-10pm CET each day. As a bonus, students will get free use of my new bpmnPRO eLearning app, perfect preparation for our certification exam. The training includes 60-day use of Process Modeler for Visio, an addin to Visio 2007/2010/2013 supporting Method and Style validation and many other great features. It also includes post-class certification that demonstrates mastery of the course material. In addition to the exam, students create a mail-in exercise meeting certain requirements and following the Method and Style design principles. I will personally review and comment on each submission, and students must iterate until it is perfect. This is how you really learn how to create “good BPMN”, diagrams that are not only correct per the BPMN 2.0 spec but that reveal the process logic clearly to others. You’ll learn which shapes and symbols you need to know and which you can ignore, as well as a methodology for going from a blank page to a complete, correctly structured model. You’ll also learn BPMN Style, a set of conventions that make the process logic clear from the printed diagram on its own — formulated as rules that are checked by the tool.
It’s a great way to get your whole team on the same page and protect your investment in process mapping. Cost for the class, including the certification and bpmnPRO, is $1095 per person (1-4), $995 pp (5-9), or contact me for 10+. Beat the 2014 price increase and use up those remaining 2013 training funds. Here is the link to register: http://sites.fastspring.com/bpmessentials/product/bpmnliveonline2013
