It is no surprise that BPM related training is a trending topic these days. Business process management (and all that encompasses it) doesn’t exactly come natural to the vast majority of us. From LinkedIn debates to discussions on EbizQ, there is commonality (and legitimacy, unfortunately) in the belief that most process improvement initiatives fail. To establish a win-win relationship in the BPM industry, vendors have to ensure that customers are amply equipped to carry out their BPM venture and, in turn, capitalize on the investment and ensuring success.
Courses are increasingly available in universities throughout the world on this very topic. However, professionals can get their foot in the door of BPM and gain needed skills through their BPM vendor. Ultimus Online Training has enabled customers to accelerate time-to-competence allowing for a quick ROI. Through blended eLearning and instructor-led training, we offer course tracks customized for your specific role, cloud-based lab environments and an online training community where you can engage in discussions and ask questions. In 2011, we will expand our curricula to include a BPM Management course, focusing on the needs of executives and business analysts with topics covering best practices for discovery, design, automation and optimization.
Additionally, Ultimus has partnered with several training organizations to provide customers with educational programs, outside of Ultimus product-specific training, at a discounted rate. Six Sigma eLearning, LLC offers Yellow, Green and Black Belt certification programs in a cost-effective and efficient method through a combination of Live Online and On-Demand self-paced eLearning. AIIM, the leading non-profit organization to provide education, research and best practices to help organizations find, control and optimize their information, has also teamed up with Ultimus. This partnership offers special member pricing for customers on the BPM Certificate Program as well as the SharePoint Certificate Program.
