Applied Process Mining for Management

Monday, 6 June 2022, 9.00am to Friday, 15 July 2022, 6.00pm
Location: Online

Course introduction 

Process Mining has revolutionized the way we analyze and optimize processes in business. Performance Problems traditionally caused long-winded manual investigations into the underlying business process looking at interview data, observations or deciphering process documentations. All of these traditional methods are time and cost consuming and only provide fractional insights. Process Mining uses a data-science approach to process science making analyses more objective, detailed and faster to obtain. 

This course is designed to provide an applied introduction to Process Mining, its industry use cases and the theoretical concepts behind it. The course furthermore delivers advanced software skills in the Celonis Execution Management Software.

The course is structured into a 6-week outline comprising live online teaching and self-study online learning consisting of software training and academic training. A kick-off and final event together with Celonis will round off the course. The live online sessions will be recorded for participants with existing commitments who are unable to attend.

The following focus topics will be covered within the six weeks:

Week 1 - Monday 6 June 2022

  • Live Kick-Off Event with guest speaker from Celonis 
  • Online Learning & Self-Study on Introduction to Process Mining
  • Introduction to Individual Research on different fields of application

Week 2 - Monday 13 June 2022

Academic supervision with Dr Jiayin Hong

An academic supervisor will be guiding participants through the course, supporting learning and on hand to answer any queries. 

Jiayin Hong

For this course, the academic supervisor will be Dr Jiayin Hong, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Data-Driven Discovery and Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge.

In her research, Jiayin applies machine learning and data mining techniques to understand how transcriptional regulatory elements coordinate and dictate gene expression. She builds artificial neural networks to predict gene expression, for the ultimate purpose of deciphering the enigma underlying genetic codes. Jiayin also deploys machine learning models to segment and annotate brain MRI images outside her research. Before moving to Cambridge, Jiayin obtained her PhD in Integrated Life Sciences and Physics, from Peking University in China. During her PhD research, Jiayin developed mathematical models and applied theories of nonlinear dynamics to address cell fate determination and cellular decision making.

No prerequisites are required for this course. This course is best suited to new entrants to Process Mining or those just starting their Process Mining journey. An understanding of information systems and Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) can provide a good basis, but this is not a requirement.

Target audience 

Open to everyone in industry, government, and third sector interested in data science and its impact on business. Suitable for early career employees through to executive-level, and anyone in between. The course will be particularly suited to those in decision making and project management positions or those have management aspirations, and are new to Process Mining concepts and applications. We will look into how Process Mining software as tool can assist Management decisions. Process Mining has developed from a purely data analytics tool towards an operational tool actively assisting everyday decision making in management. If you are not sure whether this course is right for you, please get in touch, we are happy to help you.
