Course Description

This business process improvement course provides you with an opportunity to learn the essential knowledge and skills for applying the most effective and current business analysis techniques when modeling your business, comprehensively analyzing the current state, and subsequently designing the future state. The application of these techniques will be presented as part of an overall framework, as you identify key deliverables and the major steps from modeling and analysis of the current state and future state design.

In addition to the lecture and discussion of course-specific topics, team exercises in this course are designed to apply the techniques in creating required work products from examining a realistic business scenario.
