Introduction to Business Process Management (BPM), with emphasis on the first part of its life cycle. The purpose of this course is to teach students how to „grab“ a real problem, describe it by a process map in the specific tool and simulate its behavior. It extends the technological point of view on the issues of analytical, business and management approach. Theoretical lectures are suitably combined with the real case studies presentations and practical workshops for better theory understanding. This the reason why in some weeks we do not differentiate lectures from seminars. During these weeks the study is joint to the blocks and students are required to attend to the whole block. More information can be found at http://czm.fel.cvut.cz/vyuka/Y16ISP/default.aspx

Study Objective:

Graduates will understand how to define a process, its analysis and modeling, will know the standard notation used to describe process and will know how to model and simulate created models by using IT tools. They also get an idea about the practical implementation and use of service-oriented architecture in relation to process management.In case of successful completion of the course graduates receive an IBM internationally recognized academic certificate.
