The six-week course taught by Prof. Mathias Weske, head of the chair of Department of Business Process Technology, is aimed at professionals in various fields such as business administration, quality management, organizational development, system architecture, and software development. The course language is English.
"This year, the markets and rules of the economic system are experiencing some very dynamic changes," said Weske. This development motivates companies to deal more intensively with their own business processes. The computer science professor has consequently designed his Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in such a way as to offers participants exceptionally high practical benefits.
During two of the four weeks of the course, experts from the companies from Signavio (decision modeling and simulation of business processes) and Camunda (concepts and methods for developing executable business processes) provide hands-on knowledge on how to manage business processes. During the MOOC, Signavio, and Camunda will grant free access to their software.
Participants are introduced to the essential concepts of describing and analyzing business processes and decisions. The simulation and execution of business processes will also be explored with modern business process management tools. The course aims to provide participants with a deep understanding of business process and decision modeling concepts as well as the languages with which to express them. A further objective of the course is the use of such process models in practice.
Previous courses from Prof. Weske on similar business process aspects were offered on openHPI in 2013 and 2016. They are available for self-study in the archive mode.
