<b>BOOK DESCRIPTION</b><br /><br />Have you recently taken on the role of Business Analyst, but have no clue where to start? Were you thrown into a project and given very little direction? How stressful! The entire project team is depending on you to deliver a critical requirements document that is the foundation for the entire project. But the problem is, you have no little to no training, very little direction, and and a very clear time-line of ASAP. What do you do? I've been in this situation, and it is no fun. In the early years of my career when I was a Business Analyst, I had to fumble my way through many projects to learn the tools that I needed to be an effective BA. And then as a manager, I saw many new employees struggle because they weren't properly equipped for the role. But I didn't have the time or budget to send any of them to training. That's when I developed a simple three step process that I taught every new Business Analyst that joined my team. This process allowed me to train all new Business Analysts in ONE DAY, and get them effectively gathering requirements IMMEDIATELY. The feedback that I received was astounding. The employees were more confident in their role, and the stakeholders were very impressed at the skill of the new Business Analysts. But most importantly, they were able to produce and be effective right away. You don't have to struggle any longer. <b>This book will give you the tools and techniques you need to go from Newbie to Pro in one day. </b><br /><br />You will Learn<br /><br />* The role of the Business Analyst on a project<br />* Systems Analysis and Design techniques<br />* Requirements gathering techniques<br />* Requirements Analysis techniques<br />* How to develop use cases<br />* How to develop a Business Requirements Document<br /><br /><br /><u>As a result:</u><br /><br />* You will have more confidence in your skills<br />* You will gain credibility with the project team because you will be equipped with the knowledge you need to be an effective team member<br />* You will be able to easily identify who you need to work with to gather requirements<br />* You will be able to deliver a set of requirements that exceeds the expectations of every member of the project teamjf;lsf;lsdj<br /><br /><br /><br />This book will pay for itself by giving you the confidence needed to take on any software project immediately.

This is the improved 3rd edition of the very successful book "Real-Life BPMN" with excellent reviews on Amazon.com (don't forget to check reviews of the 1st and 2nd edition). <br /><br />It is about business process management (BPM) and Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN 2.0). Truth be told, there are several BPMN books on the market. Some of them are quite good, so why should you care about this one?<br /><br />This book distills the experience the authors accumulated while running Camunda, a consulting company that specializes in BPM. Camunda helped to define the BPMN specification, and during the past ten years, they have applied BPMN in over 1000 customer engagements. These were big businesses, small companies, and public institutions. Now you can benefit from this practical experience. <br /><br />Topics covered:<br /><ul><br /><li>The basics of modeling processes with Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN 2.0)</li><br /><li>Methods to apply BPMN successfully to real-world problems</li><br /><li>A practical approach for automating processes with BPMN 2.0</li><br /><li>The alignment of business and IT as an attainable goal</li><br /><li>Advice on introducing BPMN across your company</li><br /></ul><br /><br />This book explains the notation, of course, but it also delves into the kinds of challenges that process designers face every day. It talks about pitfalls to avoid. It gives dos and don'ts. There are guidelines and best practices.<br /><br />In the 3rd edition we added introductions to the related BPM standards<br /><ul><br /><li>CMMN 1.1 for case management, handling unstructured processes</li><br /><li>DMN 1.1 for decision management, you might know as business rules management (BRM)</li><br /></ul><br /><br />This third edition in English is based on the successful fith German edition, which, according to amazon.de, it is the highest-ranked book on BPMN in German. The number of five-star ratings awarded by readers speaks volumes. Also available in Spanish.<br /><br />Note: The resolution of all images for the 3rd edition of the ebook has been increased to improve the digial reading experience.
