Business Process Management (BPM) is an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis, design, implementation, and improvement of organizational work processes and supporting IT systems. The goal of BPM is to increase operational efficiency and effectiveness (e.g., product/service quality, compliance) by understanding a company as a system of business processes, instead of functional departments only. This course covers all phases of the BPM lifecycle, from process identification over modeling, analysis, redesign, automation, to process monitoring and performance management. In addition, strategic (e.g., alignment, governance) and social (e.g., people, culture) factors of BPM will be covered. In interactive sessions students will learn state-of-the-process analysis methods and tools (e.g., process modeling with BPMN, process simulation with ARENA) and study real-world case studies related to process-oriented management methodologies like Six Sigma and Lean Management.
