Business Process Modelling using BPMN 2.0


Generic Process Modelling TrainingProcess modelling is a foundational skill required for the implementation of a complete Business Process Management capability. The methodology and notation used when documenting business processes are extremely important for standardisation. With a standard process modelling notation and methodology, process objects can be reused, models can be read and understood across business units and process modellers can work across modelling projects without restraint.


Real IRM’s Business Process Modelling Course teaches delegates foundational process modelling concepts as well as the importance and benefits of a carefully thought-out approach. The course covers the well-known process modelling standards and notations and includes a look at the considerations faced when embarking on a process modelling initiative. Delegates completing the course will gain a good understanding of process modelling as well as the ability to apply it at various levels of abstraction.

Although the course does not teach delegates how to use a specific modelling tool, it does include exercises in MS Visio and a full day assessment to consolidate the learning.

The credential is aimed at individuals who want to validate their knowledge and understanding of Business Modelling, Business Capabilities, TOGAF Business Scenarios, Information Mapping, and Value Streams by applying them in the development of a Business Architecture based on the TOGAF ® Standard Version, 9.2.

The Open Group ArchiMate® Forum will make available the latest version of the ArchiMate Specification®, version 3.0, with a series of announcements and events to take place throughout the months of June and July.

The Open Group has announced their new Open FAIR Certification Program aimed at Risk Analysts. The certification program focuses on The Open Group Risk Taxonomy and Risk Analysis standards which have advanced the risk analysis profession by defining a standard taxonomy for risk, and by describing the process aspects of a rigorous risk analysis. 

In order to become certified, Risk Analysts must pass an Open FAIR certification exam which is currently available at Prometric Centres. Training courses will be delivered through an Open Group accredited channel. 

The Open Group announced that a new ArchiMate 2.0 Foundation certification exam is available through accredited training organizations and also at Prometric test centres around the world.

ArchiMate® certification is for architects who want an internationally recognised qualification to demonstrate their detailed knowledge and ability to apply ArchiMate 2.0. It is targeted at those individuals who require a deep understanding of ArchiMate® and/or are responsible for developing architecture artifacts using the language. The certification is also intended for architects wanting to introduce ArchiMate® into their architecture practices.

The Open Group has released ArchiMate® 2.0, the latest version of the open and independent modeling language for Enterprise Architecture. ArchiMate® 2.0 is now more closely aligned with TOGAF® and enables the creation of fully integrated models of an organization's Enterprise Architecture, the motivation behind it, and the programs, projects and migration paths to implement it.
