Why this course?
In order to deliver radical and beneficial change, business analysts must be able to identify, evaluate and improve business processes.

This allows public and commercial sector organisations to achieve significant improvements in the efficiency of their operations and the effectiveness of their product and service delivery. This course will help business analysts deal with these challenges. It will equip delegates with the process modelling skills that are fundamental to the successful improvement of the business.
At the end of the course delegates may sit an examination to attain the BCS Certificate in Modelling Business Processes.
