  7. 7. Business Process Modeling<br />Business Process Modeling is a technique used to describe how multiple people or groups collaborate over time to perform work and achieve a goal.<br />This webinar will focus on tools addressing the following technique from the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) v2.0:<br />9.21 Process Modeling<br />7<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
  8. 8. Key Points<br />Business trigger is an event<br />Action by an external entity (person or system)<br />Rule or condition evaluating to some value<br />Time based (duration or point in time, i.e. date/time)<br />Workflow … activities in sequence over time<br />Activities could themselves be processes(i.e. with there own activities)<br />Branches, Parallel flows<br />Can show multiple roles / departments collaborating<br />Manual and/or automated activities<br />Process completes when the goal is met<br />8<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
  9. 9. Implementations<br />Business use cases<br />Goal, steps, flow, plain text<br />Not good at describing flow complexity (e.g. parallel flows)<br />Sometimes ambiguous<br />Take longer to absorb for larger or more complex processes<br />Cross-functional diagrams<br />a.k.a. Swimlane, Flowcharts<br />Well known – majority of users know them, even business<br />Relatively intuitive notation, but can get complex<br />9<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
  10. 10. Implementations<br />BPMN<br />Relatively new, but popularity growing fast<br />2 levels: simple and more complex<br />UML Activity<br />Older, but not best suited for business, more system<br />Easier to find tools<br />Proprietary / Non-standard<br />Non-standard, but depending on use, not always an issue<br />Often as part of a broader tool; often integrates than separate standalone “more standard” tool<br />Often simpler and more suited to the task of tool<br />10<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
  11. 11. Related Knowledge Areas<br />Obvious one:<br />Enterprise Analysis<br />However, it does relates to all …<br />Would need a deeper dive to cover these relationships<br />11<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
  12. 12. Related Models<br />How does a business model relate to requirements model?<br />Often one business activity relates 1:1 with a [system] use case or equivalent UML activity diagram<br />i.e. one activity will be one complete interaction with a system (or, of course, a manual activity)<br />12<br />© International Institute of Business Analysis<br />
