We at Rocky Mountain Improve believe that there is not one "right" or perfect way to implement or apply BPM principles. There are as many tools in BPM as there are in a mechanic's toolbox. Each tool has a specific purpose, and the right combination of tools will get the job done right.
The list below is a small sample of the most often applied methodologies in BPM
- Enterprise Modeling & Architecture
- Rummler & Brache framework
- The Zachman framework
- Six Sigma
- Lean & Value Stream Mapping
- Project Management (without project management, BPM can't work)
Our fundamental BPM course provides an overview to each of these methodologies to provide you with enough background to evaluate which ones might best suite your needs (or perhaps which interests you the most).
The BPM fundamentals course is a mixture of theory and application (1/3 theory, 2/3 application). The course includes a series of exercises that will provide you with the basic skills to get started in BPM.
The course also includes a CD with a set of BPM tools that you can apply to your BPM improvement projects. These tools include a combination of sample models, decision tools and presentation kits.
The summary list of the chapters covered in the fundamental course include:
- Overview of BPM
- Process Modeling and presentation
- Process tool application (XY, CTQ, FMEA, etc)
- Facilitating a process improvement session
- Process simulation
- Process control
- Process reporting
As with any RMI training course, each can be tailored to fit your company's needs.
