OMG Certified Expert in BPM 2™ (OCEB 2™):

Study Material


How should you study for the OCEB exams? There are two approaches, although a combination would probably work well. We think that most candidates will either study from the dedicated OCEB Certification Guide listed on this page, or take a course from one of the providers listed below it - The authors have collected information, and written exercises, that will prepare you for your examination as they instill the knowledge and skills that will make you stand out as a job candidate, or BPM developer or team leader. The alternative approach is to study from the primary references our authors used when they wrote the OCEB exams. The bulleted list just below will take you to the pages that link to the articles and specification documents (free to download) and books (not free) that our authors used, including pointers to the Chapters and Sections that we found most important. The reference lists are long, and many find it daunting. Even if you take a course, however, you may find one or a few of the referenced articles edifying, or decide to purchase one or two of the books that you determine are essential components of the well-prepared BPM practitioner's library. 

To have your publication or course listed on this page, email your request to Listing is free, but not automatic.

Holistic Business Process Management - Succeed with BPMN 2.0 and OCEB 2 Fundamental

The author's goal is to provide a holistic approach to business process management. In his perspective, the business processes are the common denominator, in which the various specialist disciplines of management meet and where common interests crystallize with an enormous potential for synergies. Object Management Group (OMG), the association behind BPMN and OCEB, has done a great job in considering business process management in a holistic manner:

  • The OCEB Certification curriculum, unlike other certifications, places a very significant emphasis on linking business process management to other management issues.
  • BPMN is the only modeling language for business processes that successfully builds a bridge between business departments and IT.

Even so, the book is not just a tool for preparing for the OCEB2 Fundamental Certification Exam. It should primarily be a practical guide to successful business process management. In many ways, the book goes beyond what you need to know about the OCEB2 Fundamental Certification. If you are interested in certification, the book covers all the necessary aspects.

The book is available in German, French and English.

Using BPMN to model Business Processes
Using BPMN to model Business Processes

This book is on the subject of using the Business Process Modeling and Notation (BPMN) modelling language to model Business Processes. As such it may be useful to architects, analysts and designers who are engaged in modelling enterprise processes for whatever reason.

There are a number of books that treat this subject from different perspectives, some more accurate than others. The purpose of this book is to give an authoritative interpretation of the entire BPMN specification, demonstrating its practical use. Specifications are written to define standards, which means they are not the best source for learning how to use them in practice.

BPMN modelling as a topic forms a fairly large percentage of all OCEB qualifications, hence this book also serves as background study material for those seeking accreditation. The book treats each and every aspect of BPMN, in a progressive manner, and hence will serve all levels of knowledge required.
