Design Thinking

The top-ranked Information Systems program at CMU-Q will conduct a half day workshop working on real world technology issues, utilizing design thinking methods by SAP. Participants will explore this method of innovation with assistance from currently-enrolled students, faculty members, and pre-college peers. Come see how information systems can meet human needs, add business value, and build feasible technologies.

 Business Process Management

A business process is a set of activities that are performed to achieve a certain objective. For example, university admission is a business process that involves different activities such as submitting an online application, sending transcripts and recommendation letters, reviewing the applications, etc. Understanding, documenting and managing business processes is a key enabler for their improvement and for the success of the respective organization. This half-day workshop introduces the students to business process management, which is a body of principles, methods, and tools to discover, analyze, redesign, and automate business processes. Moreover, it provides hands-on sessions on visual notations for process modeling and on software tools for process automation.
