Fundamentals of the Business Process Modelling Notation

BPMN is a modelling notation designed specifically for modelling business processes.

It was originally conceived by a consortium of tools vendors (BPMI) but now it is a public standard owned and maintained by the Object Management Group (OMG), which also administers the UML standard.

Target Audience

Delegates who have an interest in Process Modelling for whatever reason would benefit from attending this business process modeling notation training course.
This includes:

  • Business and Process Analysts
  • Process Designers and Implementers

This BPMN 1 day overview training course would also serve the awareness needs of Project and Programme Managers, and any personnel involved with business change and transformation.


Learning Objectives

The primary goal of BPMN is to provide a notation that is readily understandable by all business users,

  • From the business analysts that create the initial drafts of the processes
  • To the technical developers responsible for implementing the technology that will perform those processes
  • To the business people who will manage and monitor those processes.

Thus, BPMN creates a standardized bridge for the gap between the business process design and process implementation. Another goal, but no less important, is to ensure that XML languages designed for the execution of business processes, such as WSBPEL (Web Services Business Process Execution Language), can be visualized with a business-oriented notation. This specification represents the amalgamation of best practices within the business modeling community to define the notation and semantics of Collaboration diagrams, Process diagrams, and Choreography diagrams. The intent of BPMN is to standardize a business process model and notation in the face of many different modeling notations and viewpoints. In doing so, BPMN will provide a simple means of communicating process information to other business users, process implementers, customers, and suppliers." [BPMN Spec 2.0]


There are no specific prerequisites required prior to attending this overview.

However, knowledge of any form of workflow modelling would be advantageous
