Business & Process Management for Operations Excellence
Business process management is concerned with designing, planning and controlling the operations in an organization. In other words, the journeys of value-adding activities that an organization’s customers, employees, materials, energy and information all undertake.
In this course, you will learn about process management methods and how to apply them to improve the operations in different types of organizations. You will learn how to plot process drivers, identify the root cause of gaps in performance, redesign and map processes, and develop plans for process change.
The course will use exercises and a simulation to promote interaction among participants and applied learning. The simulation will allow you to reflect on, use, and experience some of the key decision making central to business process management.
Assessing and Managing Risk
Date: June 21, 2021
Location: Virtual Delivery
Cost: $995 + GST
The Assessing and Managing Risk Program focuses on dealing with the inevitable negative events which could occur and determining methods to either decrease the probability of those events or decrease the impact they will have on the project or both. This program also focuses on dealing with the potential opportunities which could occur and determining methods to either increase the probability of those events or increase the impact they will have on the project or both.
For risks to be properly defined, it is necessary to interface with the key stakeholders of the project. As with the other aspects of project planning, the risk plan should by no means be developed “in a vacuum.” This program is designed to give a working knowledge of risk management. Participants will be able to implement these concepts the very next day thus giving an edge over the competition.
