Ensuring that BPM success becomes a fundamental part of your organization starts with closing your team's BPM skill gap.
WebSphere Education takes a holistic approach to helping you build BPM skills across all roles -- including all technical and business roles -- that are involved in creating all types of BPM implementations, from basic to complex. Our course curriculum offers skill building opportunities in development, administration, process design best practices, and much more. Plus, courses are available in several convenient formats, including traditional classroom and online.
IBM Solution Mentoring is an innovative approach to BPM project implementation that provides the optimal blend of independent teamwork and expert guidance through all critical project lifecycle activities.
Unlike traditional mentoring approaches, IBM's structured mentoring approach is designed to ensure that your team learns all the critical elements of IBM's BPM implementation methodology and how to apply them using our experience-based best practices. This is accomplished through a prescribed combination of structured best practice sessions and shoulder-to-shoulder guidance, applied at appropriate times throughout your project implementation lifecycle.
Our innovative mentoring approach has proven to be extremely effective at not only helping your team deliver a successful project, but also helping them become prepared for self-sufficient delivery of future projects.
As your organization progresses through the stages of BPM transformation, your requirements for assistance will evolve corresponding to the changing volume, types, and depth of skills you will need to build on your team. While your team might require assistance on BPM fundamentals during initial projects, later projects following more experience and increasing self-sufficiency might require only occasional -- but much more advanced -- assistance. In addition, as BPM implementations in your organization increase, so will the demand for those skills.
IBM On Demand Consulting is a subscription-based service that enables you to own your implementations while having assistance readily available as you move toward full process maturity. This innovative model provides just-in-time access to our best talent -- with minimal notice and maximum cost effectiveness -- helping you to mitigate risks and speed time to completion.
On demand consulting offers 24 hour availability for filing an inquiry -- ranging from how-to and design consultations to advice on best practices and troubleshooting -- and access to active interactions with senior development and deployment consultants as they work through your question.
Available in standard and dedicated tiers, on demand consulting can meet the needs of small teams, large enterprise projects, and anything in between. This scalable model increases your ROI through reduced IT spending, successful execution of simultaneous projects, and by building your team's capabilities and expertise to ensure long-term self-sufficiency.
IBM On Demand Consulting is revolutionizing the way consulting services are delivered, and plays a major role in driving deeper adoption of BPM within an organization:
