5 Star Review from BPMN 2.0 using Micosoft Visio student

This is exactly what I was looking for.

A set of Rules and Procedures for how to map Business Processes.

I despise the 'willy-nilly' nature of several other courses I've seen.

This one provides a language of it's own that is functional for creating and understanding process flows.

Highly Recommended
