Target Group:

Business Analysts, Process Analysts, Requirements Engineers, Project Managers


Certificate of completion


Basic knowledge about BPM-concepts, BPMN-knowledge helpful but not essential.

Course Overview

Business Process Management comprises a collection of concrete methods, procedures and technologies to improve business processes. In this seminar we will give you an overview of this collection and at the same time qualify you for the certification according to the OMG standard OCEB.


The 1.5-days seminar will optimally prepare you for the OCEB certification exam. At the same time we will complement the contents of OCEB with our extensive and many years long experience from BPM projects. Thus you will learn which contents are really important for your own practical use, what’s the status quo in practical BPM trendsetting and which subjects you should be prepared for.

The certification exam is not included in this training, but you can use the remaining half day in Berlin to take the exam in one of Berlin’s many Pearson Vue Test Centers: Pearson Vue-Testcenters Website

First-Hand-Knowledge: We have joined OMG in 2009 as ‘influencing members’, and are also participating in the development of the OCEB exams.
