The Fundamentals of Business Process Management
To begin, participants will learn about three concepts that are closely tied to business process management: business analysis, enterprise content management, and business process re-engineering.
Defining Business Process Management
Next, participants will learn what business process management is, where it originated from, and what some of the benefits are.
Reflecting on Processes
In this session, participants will review their pre-assignment. The Business Process Life Cycle.
This session will introduce the business process life cycle, which will form the basis for the rest of the course.
The Vision Phase
The first phase of the business process life cycle is Vision. This session will cover ways to create and share a vision, and why it is important for process improvement.
The Design Phase
The second phase of the business process life cycle is Design. This session will explore how to gather information, define a problem, model as-is and to-be processes, and establish functions.
The Modeling Phase
The third phase of the business process life cycle is Modeling. In this session, participants will learn how to review and analyze process maps and use iterative testing.
The Execution Phase
The fourth phase of the business process life cycle is Execution. This session will take participants through all aspects of the Execution phase, including implementation, automation, business rules, and workflow engines.
The Monitoring Phase
The fifth phase of the business process life cycle is Monitoring. This session will share ways to monitor processes, including the balanced scorecard, business activity monitoring, and process mining.
The Optimizing Phase
The final phase of the business process life cycle is Optimizing. This session will cover ways to optimize processes, including the business process improvement cycle, Lean methodology, and Six Sigma theory.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
