Managing Business Processes

We’ve created our courses to suit your busy life! The duration of this course is based on a student guide where one 300 – 500 word article is read per day, and the assessment is done on a separate day after the relevant articles have been reviewed. But you can do the course in your own time and at your own pace. If you choose to do two readings per day, it will take you half of the estimated time, four readings per day means doing the course in a quarter of the time etc. We leave that decision up to you!

 

WHAT THIS COURSE IS ABOUT

Managers manage people and “things” and it is the management of the “things” that we will be focusing on. When we manage “things” such as production, sales, service, we are actually managing “processes” and “systems”. Learning how to manage business processes will help you to:

  • Explain what is meant by a process and a system and identify systems and processes in your workplace.
  • Compile a flowchart for a process in your workplace.
  • Compile a fishbone diagram illustrating the inputs/suppliers to a process in your workplace.
  • Use flowcharts in analysing process deficiencies.
  • Implement and use control points in evaluating processes and identify appropriate measurements and methods of feedback.
