Best BPM online courses – 2016 edition

Blog: BPM tips

What were your plans for 2016?
Eat healthy food? Exercise daily? Learn the basics of BPM?

If you waited with the point 3 till now, it is a great time to make the first step 🙂

I already covered some great courses for people interested in BPM for 2015 and early 2016 and today I am happy to share with you list of (free) online courses for the second half of 2016.

Course #1: “Business Process Management: an Introduction to Process Thinking“.

Instructors: Marcello La Rosa, Marlon Dumas, Jan Mendling, and Hajo Reijers

When does it start: 5 Sep 2016


Comment: This is an introduction course (3 weeks), longer one (12 weeks) will take place this autumn, but the dates are not announced yet. If you sign up below this post I will let you know when the course is available.

I participated last year in the longer one (“Fundamentals of BPM”) and it was awesome, so plan to take both courses this year.

Course #2: “Process Mining: Data science in Action“.

Instructors: Wil van der Aalst

When does it start: 11 July 2016


Comment: This was the first MOOC I took in my life and it really rocked. Process mining is a hot topic in BPM, so don’t let the “data science” part intimidate you and jump in.

Note: as with most of courses on Coursera it comes in several flavors. Basically if you want a certificate you need to pay, but course itself is free.

Course #3: “Introduction to Operations Management“.

Instructors: Christian Terwiesch

When does it start: 11 July 2016


Comment: This is also course on Coursera, so if you want the free access select “Audit” option with no quizzes and certificate.
