“Alec Sharp provides an exciting insight on how to work on mapping Business Processes. Working with Business Processes seminar contains many useful and concrete examples from the analysis done in several large companies.”
Project Manager, DNB Livsforsikring
“Alec’s course gave a practical hands on approach to learning about working with business processes. I found the brown paper & post-its case studies really practical and they made it easy to understand and apply theory. Alec’s humour and infectious enthusiasm made the course great fun too, I can still find myself performing ‘process Tai Chi’ to explain the theory to colleagues!! J A very worthwhile use of my time – wished I’d gone much sooner!”

Alec made the learning fun with a great blend of humour, involvement and time for reflection. The seminar was well structured and it flowed end to end. I had heard that Alec was a great presenter and I was not disappointed. I am about to commence a process driven change programme so I will be recommending my colleagues attend the seminar.”
