BPMN and DMN Training Course

Overview

BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) and DMN (Decision Model and Notation) are two OMG (Object Management Group) standards for process modeling and decision making. This training provides an introduction to these standards and how they should be used.

Requirements

Basic understanding of a process concept.
