Overview

BPMN is a modelling notation designed specifically for modelling business processes. It was originally conceived by a consortium of workflow 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.

This is a quote from the OMG about BPMN:

“Business Process Model and Notation has become the de-facto standard for business processes diagrams. It is intended to be used directly by the stakeholders who design, manage and realize business processes, but at the same time be precise enough to allow BPMN diagrams to be translated into software process components. BPMN has an easy-to-use flowchart-like notation that is independent of any particular implementation environment.” [https://www.omg.org/Spec/BPMN].

This course is a one day overview of the whole of the BPMN specification. It is intended to show delegates what modelling features are available from the BPMN standard.
