bpmnPRO Now Available

Over the summer I have been hard at work on a new kind of BPMN training, an app completely based on gamification. Today it's ready and open to the public. Called bpmnPRO, it covers the same material as my BPMessentials BPMN Method and Style training, but in a complementary way. In addition to explaining how to use the important BPMN shapes and symbols, the BPMessentials training is long on explanation of concepts and context: how is BPMN similar to and different from traditional flowcharting?

Free bpmnPRO with December BPMN Class

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.

It also includes post-class certification that demonstrates mastery of the course material.

Announcing New BPMN Master Class

Over the years I have gotten requests for a class that goes beyond the basics of my BPMessentials BPMN Method and Style training. OK, we're going to do it! It will be in June, probably replacing my regular live-online class. It will only be available to those who have received the BPMN Method and Style certification, or who have completed Level 10 of my bpmnPRO gamified eLearning app, within the last year.

Method and Style Wizard Generates BPMN Automatically

itp commerce has just released a new BPMN Method and Style wizard that automatically creates well-structured BPMN from a simple interview. In my BPMN training, the "Method" is the hardest part because it asks students to describe the process top-down and abstractly, as opposed to the bottom-up "what came next?" format of the SME fact-finding. It's especially hard when you're first learning the shapes and symbols, and have all those label-matching style rules to keep in mind, as well.

More on BPMN Master Class

I've worked out the details on the new BPMN Master Class, and here they are: The class will take place live-online on two successive Mondays, June 2 and June 9, from 11am to 4pm ET (5pm to 10pm CET). The first day will present the material, with some in-class exercises, and discuss the homework assignment. Yes, homework!
