In this course you learn about business process management (BPM) process analysis and improvement methods and techniques, and how to make your organization and business unit process-oriented.

This course teaches processes that help organizations with the decomposition of a business unit or group within an enterprise. The course also offers demonstrations and a predefined case study exercise that are designed to reinforce the concepts and skills that are covered in the lectures.
