Collaborative Business Planning (CBP) is a powerful adjunct to the QualiWare Business Process Management / Enterprise Architecture platform and available as a managed service on the Azure Cloud. CBP business models enable stakeholders across the organization to develop, analyze and deploy CBP results for improved decision-making.
This two-day “hands-on” workshop, (delivered in 4 successive 1/2 day sessions), developed by CBP-Software and Landmark Decisions, and also co-hosted by CloseReach, is offered to new users of CBP assigned the responsibility of building, validating, and generating results from CBP models. A step-by-step learning approach is used so that participants can follow along with the instructor. Access to CBP through the Cloud is provided for each participant. Participants come away with “ready to apply” tips, techniques, and templates to enhance their experience as CBP Modelers.
This workshop provides foundational training on developing CBP business models to help organizations collaborate to improve organizational performance. It will benefit:
Basic QualiWare concepts:
CBP Modeling Components
Calculating CBP Models
Generating CBP Results
Importing and Exporting CBP Data
CBP Support Portal
Training material supplied: CBP User Manual
