This training program is specifically designed for participants who prefer learning by doing, practical exercises and tangible outcomes.
The theoretical parts of this course will focus on the foundations of SIPOC (Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs, and Customers) and BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation). Both are vital tools for understanding, visualizing, measuring, optimizing and improving business processes.
After each module, participants will actively engage in group exercises, ensuring that they translate their newly acquired knowledge into real-life applications. All exercises are structured around the intricate coffee-making process and involve real coffee, serving as a tangible metaphor for real-world business scenarios.
This training course will help you to close the gap between theory and practice, equipping yourself with tools and techniques to enhance business efficiency and improve your company processes.
