"OCEB 2 is a perfect implicit agreement between people of a common understanding of business process management terms and concepts. If I have a discussion with someone who is OCEB-certified, we quickly get to the very important talking points."

Tim Weilkiens
CEO of oose Innovative Informatik GmbH

"The main difference from the original OCEB is the update to BPMN 2.0. But it's more than just an update: the questions in BPMN are completely rewritten, with a big focus on scenario-based questions. So the candidates can prove their BPMN modeling skills based on many examples of business process diagrams."

Olaf Tesmer
Trainer and Consultant at oose Innovative Informatik eG

"The practice of modeling and the use of standard (OMG) notations have proven their value. We who practice modeling, architecture, and systems engineering now find ourselves in a situation where we need peers who have fluency with the current modeling languages and their tools. We, at No Magic, believe that we can best find and best foster those competent modelers through participation in the certification programs of the OMG. Therefore, I, personally, and No Magic, the corporation, are actively contributing to and going through these certification programs. The latest of these is the OCEB2, a timely update of the original OCEB, that updates that examination to address the evolution of Business Motivation Modeling, Business Process Modeling and Notation, and global governance and value chain revisions that have occurred over the 5 years since OCEB became available."

Lonnie VanZandt
Chief Architect at No Magic, Inc, co-chair of the OMG Revision Task Force for UPDM, and contributing member of the OCEB 2 author team

"I recently participated in the beta exam of OCEB 2 Fundamental and was delighted to finally see BPMN 2.0 covered by the certification. This update ensures that participants have the most important skills needed in today's BPM projects."

Falko Menge
Senior Consultant and Trainer at Camunda Services GmbH

"The only one examination which connects [the] business world to IT. Moreover, it is vendor neutral and up-to-date. Candidates will need to understand broad enterprise problems, starting from strategic management (Business Motivation Model) to process and rules implementation. [I] wish both more managers and IT people got the knowledge covered in this certification before starting any work."

Bernard Szlachta
Director of NobleProg

"The OMG Certified Expert in BPM (OCEB) program is the only independent BPMN certification program. With this new OCEB 2 version, organizations can be assured that their personnel are certified with the latest versions of BPMN standards and knowledge."

Denis Gagne
CEO and CTO of Trisotech

"The OCEB 2 certification covers a wide range of topics that reflect the latest advances in BPM both at the business and technical levels. It is the right certification for BPM practitioners who wish to make themselves more valuable internally, as well as increase their value on the job market. OCEB professionals will clearly provide competitive advantage to any organization."
