For more than 10 years Method Park and its customers have gathered experiences in hundreds of projects and developed strategies for effective process management. We have found solutions to avoid processes that are disconnected from reality and the business goals of the organization.

The workshop covered the following topics:

  • Stages Method Overview & Goals
