Perigon Method: Benefits of Certification

Learn from our nearly 25 years of experience, and gain an in-depth understanding on how to solve business workflow challenges such as lack of metrics and accountability. The Perigon® Method is more usable, understandable, and versatile than other process mapping methods, and it engages employees to manage and improve their own processes and systems.

Who should attend?

Any professional who wants to acquire a better process mapping methodology for defining, improving, and aligning business processes with overall enterprise strategy. In particular, this certification will benefit process improvement professionals currently using Lean Six Sigma, swim lane diagrams, or other more limited mapping tools.

  • Assess an organization’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Map business processes, diagnose performance, and prioritize improvement opportunities
  • Rapidly improve any part of the business
  • Break down organizational barriers to create alignment across departments
  • Develop actionable performance improvement plans that yield measurable results

Course details & what you will learn

The Perigon Method creates current state process maps, captures process improvement opportunities, develops a first-pass customer value assessment, benchmarks beginning performance, identifies quick-win improvements, and delivers a 90-day process improvement plan. In this certification training course, students will learn how to:

  1. Develop “Current State” process maps, using BEM’s unique and effective mapping tools.
  2. Identify “Red Clouds” — process improvement opportunities — and develop a “Quick Wins Matrix” that Process Owners can implement within 90 days.
  3. Conduct an internal, interactive “System Alignment Workshop,” where individual process maps are evaluated to identify organizational silos and disconnects.

  5. Train Process Owners in your organization.
