In addition to the general fact that visual representations help people retain and remember information longer, diagrams offer further advantages. The bird's-eye view increases understanding of the subject matter because the process can be analysed. Unnecessary steps often only become visible at this level. In addition, new employees learn the process more quickly and easily. You will find many reasons to visualise their processes. Show - don't tell.
BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) is the established standard for business process modelling that has become widely used in practice in just a few years. All important modelling tools offer the BPMN for the graphical representation of operational processes. Both business models and technically oriented diagrams can be created, which serve as the basis for execution in a workflow or business process management system (BPMS).
This book provides a step-by-step introduction to BPMN with numerous practice-oriented examples. Starting with the basic elements for clear process modelling, all diagrams of BPMN 2.0 are gradually presented in detail. You will get to know and understand the complete notation. You will learn how to use the various language constructs correctly. A collection of proven patterns helps you to solve typical questions from the practice of process modelling.
