BPMN 2.0 for Business Analysts

I like the way Birol customized some parts of the training to cater to my role as Business Analyst. This way, he was able to focus on the topics that are important and not dwell on topics that I generally will not use in my work. He teaches very clear and ensures that you understand a topic before going to the next. You can say that he is a seasoned professor and very knowledgeable on his subject, and knows how to analyze training needs of the student to effectively cover topics which are essential and relevant. This makes his sessions very effective as it is flexible and right on target. His materials are very comprehensive and he makes a point to follow the curriculum but making it more relevant to the student. I appreciate that he knows industry standards and is able to give his insights as to what works. I've never learned as much as I did on a 2-day course and it is worth all the time and effort. The training did expedited my learning of BPMN 2.0 and gave me the basics and confidence to start practicing the technique in my work. Thank you Birol and NobleProg for a wonderful learning experience I will surely recommend the course and trainer to future colleagues.

LeanIT Lean IT: Applying the principles of Lean to IT operations 14 hours When an enterprise begins a lean transformation, be it in manufacturing, services, or technology, too often the IT department is left out of the picture. Lean IT is a response to this. Lean IT is an extension of Lean principles to information technology (IT), its principle tenet being "the elimination of waste" (work that adds no value to a product or service). In this instructor-led training, participants learn how to unpack the problem of waste in an IT organization. Through the coverage of theory, case-study activities, and hands-on practice with the tools, methods, and metrics needed, participants learn the critical thinking, analytical and communication skills needed to address the problem of waste in IT operations. By way of this interactive process, participants learn how to apply Lean IT principles and practices within their own organization and establish a culture of continuous improvement in IT. At the end of this course, participants will understand the impact and role of the IT department in an organization's Lean transformation.

Did you know the time of day you schedule your meetings can have a big impact on their likelihood of success or failure? - Did you know that in one large experiment, one simple practice moved the percentage of deals closed from 12.5% to 67% -- and that these closed deals were also 18% more beneficial to both parties? - Did you know that with presentations, within 7 seconds your audience has judged everything about your trustworthiness, believability, and more -- and there are a handful of things you can do to influence this? We cover these phenomena and many others, which, if implemented and concentrated on can revolutionise your business and increase your conversions and profitability.

However, this course demonstrates how a Team member specialising in testing can add a great deal of value in the Scrum development process. Overview of Agile The Agile manifesto and principles Benefits of Agile Scrum overview and context Scrum Development Process Scrum components – 4 ceremonies, 4 artefacts, 3 roles The Scrum Process Comparison of V-Model to Agile Approach to Software Testing Traditional requirements v User Stories Valuing working software over documentation – what test documentation is needed?

jbpm7casemgmt JBPM: Case Management with JBPM v7 14 hours Whereas BPM is used to model repeatable processes based on clearly defined workflows, Case Management is a technique to represent non-repeatable processes. Unlike BPM, which focuses on process and process optimization, Case Management focuses on data: the capturing, presentation, and modification of data inputs and outputs to assist managers in making better decisions on the fly. JBPM v7 brings together these two disciplines into a single software suite. In this instructor-led training, participants will learn how to create and manage Cases in JBPM v7 by engaging in live, practical, hands-on exercises and discussions. By the end of this training, participants will have a firm understanding of when to use Case Management to optimize processes, and will be equipped with the necessary practice to setup, configure, and manage a Case Management system based on JBPM within their own organization. Audience Developers Process designers Process analyst Persons in charge of or interested in process optimization within their organization Format of the course Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice Introduction     When to use and when NOT to use Case Management Choosing your notation standard: BPMN2 vs CMMN Preparing your design and development environment Overview of Kie Workbench Creating your first Case Project Writing a Case Definition Inserting Case data through REST API Executing your Case Cases: A closer look     Levels and variables Extended your Case Managing your Cases with Case data Adding dynamic activities during runtime Deploying your Cases Troubleshooting Closing remarks

PRICES103 B2B Power Pricing! 12 Principles of Pricing Strategy To Boost B2B Profits - 1.5 Day Course with 3.5 Day Sales and Marketing Evaluation 35 hours This is a five day version of the award winning course that helps you stop leaving money on the table, convert more sales, get bigger judgements, and gets your customer to perceive more value in your product offering while making them feel more comfortable spending money. It's like a 7th generation smart phone for your pricing designed by someone who was responsible for training in the marketing and sales department of the world's biggest biotech company which had both B2C and B2B operations. Awards: A shortened version of this training program, developed by Philippe -- who was responsible for training in the marketing and sales department of the world's biggest biotech company -- won its presenter, "Top Trainer" at the 2016 B2B Master conference in Kiev. Course Description: When asked to choose a pricing order which would maximize revenue in a sales situation, 95% of managers, directors, even CEOs of huge internet companies choose the option which would cost them almost 45% of sales. Learn how to create pricing environments and product matrixes which have been shown again and again to make customers and clients feel more comfortable spending money, using ideas developed and researched by some of the world's biggest companies and Nobel prize winners. Achieve 15%, 23%, 43%, and greater increases in sales and revenue with simple, low cost strategies which are applicable in virtually every aspect of B2B sales. Every entrepreneur, director, graphic designer, sales manager, consultant, advertising specialist, and human being responsible for their own brand should see this seminar at least once in their lives. Indeed, it is essential knowledge for those in the R&D department and tasked with developing new products because an understanding of how customers see a product matrix and spend money within it are key and can lead to significantly different levels of revenue and profit for the company. A lot has changed in the world in the last 60 years. You’re not communicating with technology from the 1960s, like snail mail – or clunky typewriters. In the time it has taken for us to develop our communication tools of today, Nobel Prize winning economists and other researchers have forged ahead in the understanding of human behaviour. You will be exposed to case studies and study after study in field after field of pricing, value estimation and purchase decision making to discover common threads in human behaviour and how to create both more perceived value in your product line offering as well as increase sales for year-end reports. You will learn to guide decisions of your customers with phenomenon so powerful they work in every field from pricing to human mate selection to world renowned “magic” acts (who are quick to admit there is no magic, but only psychology). You will never look at your prices the same way again. What You Will Learn To Boost Your Business: By taking this course, you will: - Better understand the pricing strategies of the world's biggest companies - Get a leap ahead of the competition in the sales arms race - Learn how to create a pricing environment which makes your customers feel more comfortable spending money - Learn and, importantly, UNDERSTAND, the proper order of pricing presentation in many negotiation and sales situations and why the wrong order can cost you 45% of your sales - Learn how to create a product and pricing matrix which can increase product sales by up to 34% - Learn how to ask a question which will double or triple the price paid for a bottle of wine at auction - Learn how to add one inexpensive counter-intuitive option to product options which can increase sales by up to 40% - Learn how one company raised prices by 10% and increased revenue by 95% and why this worked - Learn how to implement several interesting pricing strategies of successful businesses as revealed by some of the world's greatest business strategy researchers - Learn how to implement pricing strategies to reposition your brand on a market wide basis - Learn how to better design your store layout and/or brochures for more sales - Learn how to create a pricing environment which will guide your customers to options which are more profitable for you - Improve your skills in advertisement layout and merchandise display based on key psychological principles - Learn how to create product packages which will increase sales without increasing prices - Learn how to use some items to create a demand for other items - Learn how to increase the perception of value and quality using price - TAKE MOST OF THE GUESSWORK OUT OF YOUR PRICING What People Have To Say: "While we worked together at the world's biggest biotech company, and Philippe did training in our marketing and sales department, he came up with more good ideas in one week than our whole company came up with in a year. Every business, executive, manager, and entrepreneur should hear his pricing and business seminars once." Michael Ketcham, Former Sales Manager - Monsanto Saint Louis, Missouri, USA "I have been successfully managing sales for decades and I can say this is a mind taking and action provoking session -- with sparks! I highly recommend it." Anton Yatchenko Sony (Co-Owner 12 Moscow Stores)   "Worth every Euro. Fascinating."

PRICES102 B2B Power Pricing! 12 Principles of Pricing Strategy To Boost B2B Profits - 1.5 Day Course with Half Day Sales and Marketing Evaluation 14 hours This is the two day version of the award winning course that helps you stop leaving money on the table, convert more sales, get bigger judgements, and gets your customer to perceive more value in your product offering while making them feel more comfortable spending money. It's like a 7th generation smart phone for your pricing designed by someone who was responsible for training in the marketing and sales department of the world's biggest biotech company which had both B2C and B2B operations. Awards: A shortened version of this training program, developed by Philippe -- who was responsible for training in the marketing and sales department of the world's biggest biotech company -- won its presenter, "Top Trainer" at the 2016 B2B Master conference in Kiev. Course Description: When asked to choose a pricing order which would maximize revenue in a sales situation, 95% of managers, directors, even CEOs of huge internet companies choose the option which would cost them almost 45% of sales. Learn how to create pricing environments and product matrixes which have been shown again and again to make customers and clients feel more comfortable spending money, using ideas developed and researched by some of the world's biggest companies and Nobel prize winners. Achieve 15%, 23%, 43%, and greater increases in sales and revenue with simple, low cost strategies which are applicable in virtually every aspect of B2B sales. Every entrepreneur, director, graphic designer, sales manager, consultant, advertising specialist, and human being responsible for their own brand should see this seminar at least once in their lives. Indeed, it is essential knowledge for those in the R&D department and tasked with developing new products because an understanding of how customers see a product matrix and spend money within it are key and can lead to significantly different levels of revenue and profit for the company. A lot has changed in the world in the last 60 years. You’re not communicating with technology from the 1960s, like snail mail – or clunky typewriters. In the time it has taken for us to develop our communication tools of today, Nobel Prize winning economists and other researchers have forged ahead in the understanding of human behaviour. You will be exposed to case studies and study after study in field after field of pricing, value estimation and purchase decision making to discover common threads in human behaviour and how to create both more perceived value in your product line offering as well as increase sales for year-end reports. You will learn to guide decisions of your customers with phenomenon so powerful they work in every field from pricing to human mate selection to world renowned “magic” acts (who are quick to admit there is no magic, but only psychology).

bddfornonprogrammers BDD for Non-Programmers: Live workshop 14 hours BDD, or Behavior Driven Development, is an Agile software development technique that encourages collaboration among developers, quality assurance teams and non-technical business people throughout the planning, development and testing cycle of a software project. The workshop begins with an introduction to BDD, what it is and how it is used by companies to promote good software design, development and testing. We do this from a non-engineering point-of-view, with an eye on the end-users, their requirements, language, and way of thinking. We also address the communication challenges that business stakeholders are likely to encounter as they work closer with their technical-minded peers.

busics Business Communication Skills 35 hours Communication skills have long been recognised as essential to professional success and many a career has stalled, faltered or stagnated thanks to a lack of communication skills. Contrary to urban myth, few of us are born with this skill, instead most have either practised or learned from mistakes. This course is designed to assist delegates to improve their communication skills and in consequence their ability to work with others. Mediation skills are subtly yet meaningfully different. Excellent communication is a pre-requisite but more important is the ability to listen and take note of what is being said. The role of the mediator is to help parties reach a solution to their problem and to arrive at an outcome that both parties are happy to accept. Mediators avoid taking sides, making judgements or giving guidance. They are simply responsible for developing effective communications and building consensus between the parties. This course also covers the wider range of skills, in addition to communication, that are required to be an effective mediator.

JMM_BUY The Buyers Mind hours We all buy stuff but when we're excited or under pressure we can often make buying decisions that we later come to regret. A safe bet is to stick with known brands or a preferred supplier which often means paying more because it feels safer. This can be costly especially when you're working on a tight budget, or if the competition is beating you on price. So how can you increase your bottom line? Your top sales team will meet their targets and in turn be rewarded handsomely simply because they can move a lot of stock or services that your provide. However, this also means you an increase in work load, produce more, more wages, more energy, more logistics, more postage and packaging. As you know the net difference is your sales minus your costs which includes all the production costs plus the amount you pay to your suppliers. Many buyers will have a list of preferred suppliers which means they will ignore and accept the creeping price increases in order to save them valuable time spent in researching new companies because sticking with existing suppliers is a safe bet but it doesn't keep you or your business competitive. This brief course will give you an insight to how the mind of a buyer works. We explore the internal thinking strategies buyers use and the persuasion techniques sales people use to extract you from your hard earned cash. For example; Suppliers of NHS consumables, or suppliers of Military spec components will charge up to 500% more for the items found commercially which are identical in fitness, form and functionality. Buying is often overlooked as a means to increase profit margins. Forewarned is forearmed. Learn to recognise the 8 short cuts (S.L.A.C.K.E.R.S.) which our brain uses to save glucose when making buying decision. You’ll leave the workshop with the tools and strategies to rethink your own buying habits. Aims of the course include: Helping you cope with the way your brain reacts and instead implement more effective buying strategies. Helping you to cope better with uncertainty and retain control in negotiations. To give you a deeper understanding of your mind which will lead to greater calm during adversity. Outcomes of the course will include: Attendees will be able to improve their bottom line by evaluating their present buying strategies before implementing new ways to make buying decisions. BONUS Get to understand how the sales meta program works. (A brief outline of 'The Sales Hand') Learn how a good salesman operates on your mind.

sixsigmabb Six Sigma Black Belt 84 hours Six Sigma is a data driven approach that tackles variation to improve the performance of products, services and processes, combining practical problem solving and the best scientific approaches found in experimentation and optimisation of systems. The approach has been widely and successfully applied in industry, notably by Motorola, AlliedSignal & General Electric. Black Belt is a qualification for improvement managers in a Six Sigma organisation. You will learn the tools and techniques to take an improvement project through the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control phases (DMAIC). These techniques include Process Mapping, Measurement System Evaluation, Regression Analysis, Design of Experiments, Statistical Tolerancing, Monte Carlo Simulation and Lean Thinking. The content of the course takes the participants through the DMAIC phases as well as introducing subjects such as Lean Thinking, Design for Six Sigma and discussing important leadership issues and experiences in deploying a Six Sigma programme. Week 1 Foundation: covers the fundamentals of the Lean Six Sigma Define Measure Analyse Improve Control (DMAIC) approach enabling participants to take part and lead waste and defect reduction projects and initiatives. Week 2 Practitioner: provides additional data analysis and lean tools for participants to lead well scoped process improvement projects related to their regular job function. Week 3 Expert: provides regression, design of experiment and data analysis techniques to enable participants to tackle complex problem solving projects that require understanding of the relationships between multiple variables. The trainer has 16 years experience with Six Sigma and as well as leading the deployment of Six Sigma at a number of businesses he has trained and coached over 300 Black Belts. Here are a few comments from previous participants: “Probably the most valuable course I will ever pass” “The content was very well delivered. The examples very relevant. Thank you” “The course was excellent and I am able to use part of it to coach my lean teams here” (Company supervisor who attended with KTP associate) Block 1 Day 1 Introduction to Six Sigma Project Chartering & VOC Process Mapping Stakeholder analysis Day 2 Team Start Up Prioritisation Matrix Lean Thinking Value Stream Mapping Day 3 Data Collection Minitab and Graphical Analysis Descriptive Statistics Day 4 Measurement System Evaluation Process Capability Cp, CpK Six Sigma Metrics Day 5 5 Why FMEA Block 2 Day 1 Review of Block 1 Multivari Inferential Statistics Intro to Hypothesis Testing Day 2 2 sample t-tests F tests Hypothesis Testing – Chi Sq Day 3 Hypothesis Testing - Anova Day 4 Correlation and Regression Multiple Regression Introduction to Design Of Experiments Day 5 Mistake Proofing Control Plans Control Charts Block 3 Day 1 Review of Block 2 2K Factorial Experiments Box Cox Transformations Hypothesis Testing – Non Parametric Day 2 2K Factorial Experiments Fractional Factorial Experiments Day 3 Noise Blocking Robustness Centre Points General Full Factorial Experiments Day 4 Response Surface Experiments Implementing Improvements Creative Solutions Day 5 Intro to Design for Six Sigma Statistical Tolerancing Monte Carlo Simulation Certification Six Sigma is a practical qualification, to demonstrate knowledge of what has been learnt on the course you will need to undertake 2 coursework projects. There is no report to produce but you will be required to present a PowerPoint presentation to the trainer and examiner showing results and method. The projects can cover work you would complete in your normal work, however you will need to show use of the DMAIC problem solving approach and application of Six Sigma and Lean tools. This provides a good balance between the practical approach and more rigorous analysis which together lead to robust solutions. You will be able to contact the trainer for discussions of how Six Sigma tools could benefit you in your project. Examples of projects from previous participants include: Formulating cream texture for seasonality in dairy feeds. Housing Association complaints reduction Multi-variable (cost, efficiency, size) optimisation of a fuel cell Job Scheduling improvement in a factory Ambulance waiting time reduction Reduction in resin thickness variation in glass manufacture NobleProg & Redlands provide Black Belt certification.

eraamauml Efficient Requirement Management using Agile Methods and Agile UML Modeling 21 hours Objective: This training course aims at helping product managers, products owners, business analysts, system architects and developers understand how to efficiently Manage Requirements on the basis of the product vision till guiding developers accurately in implementing them. More in detail, this course aims at assisting product managers in better defining the value propositions of their products on the basis of strategies and stakeholder needs. Business Analysts and product owners understand how to describe requirements of the product backlog then discover appropriate epics and user stories of the system while contributing to the required value creation. Along interactive case study exercises, participants learn how to describe in detail such requirements in order to validate correct understanding of needs and prepare system acceptance tests. Thus, only using a very common and productive UML profile, they learn to structure requirements in order to communicate efficiently with architects and developers through an iterative requirement gathering process. Audience: Product Managers Product Owners Business Analysts Anyone interetsted in the Requirements Management Process Introduction What is the Requirement Management Process ? Why Agile ?

oobdp Object Oriented Design using Design Patterns 14 hours Objective: Helping Technical Analysts and Designers to understand how to go through software implementation of the requirements, ensuring traceability between business specifications and the software code. This 2 day training course aims at assisting technical analysts and designers in designing specifications described by the business analysts. After transformation into software component representations, the resulting system components trace system requirements toward software component structures. Finally, these technical specifications are implemented in software code and tested upon component basis. The resulting software components provide good level of reactivity to changes as they allow to trace separately toward the implementation level the system behaviours layer by layer (from the user interfaces toward business objects layer through the application components where the usage choices of the actors are stored. Introduction What is the System Analysis and Design Process? Place of the Analysis and Design activities in the Unified Process (RUP) A panorama of UML 2 diagrams used in the system analysis and design Frameworks for tracing requirements toward software implementation and tests How to transform requirements into component based analysis specifications? Traceability between requirements and system analysis Advanced notions for representing the system structure and dynamics Refinement of the requirements on both axis Toward the system design using operation contracts Case Study : Definition of the analysis component model of the system How to transform analysis specifications into design level ones? Traceability between system analysis and design Design Patterns for loose coupling and high cohesion of components Definition of the Design level Architectural Backbone of the system (components, ports, interfaces, exchange objects) Design level interaction diagrams to implement operation contracts Case Study : Updating design level component diagram with architectural choices Implementing technical specifications and testing on a component basis Generating design level specifications into an object oriented programming language Deployment of Components on the Physical Nodes Integration and Acceptance tests on the basis of the previous specifications Conclusion Steps of the system analysis and design processes Patterns for ensuring traceability between requirements and the software code Testing requirements on the system architecture Notice: The above training-mentoring sessions are conducted interactively using Requirement Engineering and Modeling tools in order to ensure good level of traceability between requirements and underlying solutions. Concepts are explained first using basic examples and are then followed by solution drafts to your own issues.
