A 2 day course for Business Analysts in modelling business information, to complement the modelling of business process.


This course is for business analysts, managers, and others who need to understand how Information Modelling is used in Business Process documentation, and in designing processes that use IT systems. The topics will be highly relevant to business analysts interested in achieving quality outcomes in business process improvement projects. This course is also a perfect next step for those who have attended the Fundamentals of Business Analysis or Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture courses.

The course assumes no previous experience in business analysis or modelling. It would also prove invaluable to process improvement project managers or IT professionals.


Upon completing this course, attendees will be able to:

  • understand how Information Modelling is used in Business Process design, IT System design, and Enterprise Architecture.
  • create basic information models.
  • evaluate information models for correctness and quality.
  • understand the concept and use of Business Objects.
  • understand how information models link to other models in process improvement projects or in enterprise architecture.
  • understand the role of databases and information models in best practice business process design.
