Signavio BPMN training (Business Process Modeling and Notation) and DMN training (Decision Model and Notation) empower your employees to make full use of the power of SAP Signavio Process Manager. Whether you’re experienced with business decision management or just getting started, Signavio DMN training will have you making smarter decisions in no time.

What Signavio BPMN training won’t do are the following five things...

1. Bore you with unnecessary details

Signavio BPMN training offers instruction from industry-certified experts, with step-by-step sessions and activities that will teach you how to develop accurate process models using BPMN 2.0. You will learn how to confidently apply business process rules and methodology to create and define diagrams, flows, and models that can be shared across all business-oriented domains. And that’s it!

No unnecessary theory, no irrelevant examples—just a clear and structured session helping you understand how and why business analysts use BPMN, the various techniques and BPMN methods available, how to avoid common pitfalls in process modeling, and how to draw process diagrams with a consistent level of detail and accuracy.

Whether you’re experienced with BPMN or just getting started, Signavio training will have you making smarter decisions in no time. Just ask Johannes Stör, Signavio’s training team leader:

“It’s great to see people’s confidence with BPM principles grow after only a few hours. Once they have the basics down, you can see people already starting to think about how they might apply what they’ve learned to their own organizations and contexts.”

But don’t just take our word for it—here’s what a few of our training participants had to say:

“Incorporating BPM/BPMN into the training in conjunction with teaching the Signavio tools is really effective. We had a room full of people for whom these concepts were completely new and they were able to rapidly synthesize the information while applying it.”

“Designing with BPMN 2.0 in Signavio was clearly explained and I'm confident I can create models on my own now.”

2. Demand you come to us

Many training providers will demand you show up to some anonymous corporate conference center, with terrible coffee and stale pastries, but not  Signavio. Our trainers will come to you, meaning you can keep drinking the terrible coffee at your own office instead!

Signavio offers a two-day program of tailored, in-house DMN and BPMN training, including an introduction to basic process modeling, a comprehensive course in business decision management, and hands-on exercises using SAP Signavio Process Manager.

In addition, because of the tailored nature of the two-day sessions, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and consider examples unique to your sector and your organization.

Finally, instead of the usual hard copies of training material, Signavio offers a better way for you to keep what you have learned close at hand. Our BPM Quick Guide is a full-colored A5 brochure summarizing the most important facts of the training in a handy format, intended to be a helpful guide and refresher for the future.

3. Force you to learn when you don’t want to

In a fast-paced working environment, it isn’t always easy to carve out a big chunk of time in order to take part in training, even if it takes place at your own organization. Fortunately, Signavio E-Learning gives you the opportunity to take part in a training course wherever and whenever you like—for free!

Signavio E-Learning is aimed at anyone with a practical interest in BPMN, though with a particular focus on beginners. Each course will usually last just a couple of weeks, depending on how fast you work through the content, and of course you choose your own time commitment.

In addition to guidance from experienced BPMN trainers, feedback on your performance, and a certificate confirming your successful completion of the course, Johannes says, “We use the peer review learning model for our e-learning program, meaning you have the opportunity to collaborate with others completing the course alongside you. This is a tried and true method to ensure that what you’ve learned really sticks!”

4. Leave you on your own

While Signavio E-Learning rewards those who want to move at their own pace, and the on-site training sessions are great for teams who want to learn together, sometimes a more intensive and personalized approach is required. For these cases, you can take advantage of Signavio’s individual BPMN coaching sessions.

In a coaching session, you will have the opportunity to discuss your specific questions about process, decision, and workflow management with our experienced BPMN trainers, with advice and support delivered one-on-one by web conference or telephone.

Coaching is individually tailored to best meet your requirements, whether that is a focus on your particular questions about the SAP Signavio Process Transformation Suite and its individual modules, tips about modeling processes and decision diagrams, or even optimization of existing business processes.

Coaching is also a good option to get individual advice on challenging topics dealing with process variants within your organization, or managing the risks and controls related to your work.

An individual coaching session offers a great extension to the other training sessions, whether you are just starting out with your BPMN/DMN journey, or have already successfully implemented process management activities in your company. You can book an individual coaching session at any time that suits you, too.

5. Ignore your comments

Johannes continues: “I like to let our training participants speak for themselves, through the comments we receive in our BPMN training session evaluations. Of course we always have room for improvement, but I always love to hear how useful people have found the training. If we’re doing a good job getting people up to speed on BPMN and DMN, then we’re a step closer to Signavio’s goal of ‘BPM for everyone’.”

With that in mind, here are just a few more comments from training participants:

“The biggest plus I found was that it doesn't matter if you're from a technical/non-technical background, it is easy to navigate, learn and with practice get the job done.”

“The course was interactive, that was very nice. I didn't feel the need to look at my watch to see if it was already time to go home.”

“Good mixture of practical work and the theory.”

“The teacher was very kind and listened to our needs and explained the material very well.”

“Flexibility and knowledge of the trainer...Well thought-out examples and material...Very knowledgeable and experienced trainer, good material...Good knowledge of the presenter, can listen very well and responded very adequately to our questions… Easy to understand, good exercises, professional and nice course leader…”
