LEARN HOW TO EFFICIENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY FIND THE PROBLEM AREAS IN YOUR ORGANIZATION’S BUSINESS PROCESSES – AND THEN SOLVE THEM.

Discover how to model process flowcharts that bring business processes to life, mapping them out clearly, allowing you to lower costs and improve efficiency in your organization

When a problem arises in a business it isn’t always easy to see why that problem is happening – often, all you end up seeing are the symptoms.

One of the core requirements of any successful Business Analyst is using Business Analysis techniques to create practical process maps and process flowcharts.

Having clearly set-out visual tools makes it easier to read and understand exactly what should be happening, as well as who is responsible for each task. Thus, allowing organizations to react to problems that come up and changes in the marketplace.

Course enrollment grants you lifetime access, with no expiration, to all the course lectures, activities, handouts, and quizzes. In addition, you’ll also receive 1-on-1 support for any questions or uncertainties that come up. And this all comes with a money-back guarantee. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.

Note - All of the teaching, templates, and solutions in the flowchart courses make use of Draw.io – a free online flowcharting tool – instead of a paid program, in order to ensure all students are able to follow along with activities.

This course will teach you from the ground up, dealing with everything from flowcharting concepts, various symbols and their uses, flow chart levels, and beyond.

  • High-Quality Video Lectures explain the complex terms and confusing jargon to ensure you get a concrete understanding of the concepts being discussed
  • Downloadable Handouts enhance your understanding further
  • Quizzes and over a dozen different activities validate your learning and increase information retention as well as understanding.

This is the most comprehensive process mapping course on the market, and it’ll walk you through, step-by-step, everything you need to know in a practical and easy to understand way. Each lesson and subsequent activities build upon the previous skills you’ve learned, so by the end, you’ll be completely comfortable creating flowcharts for any business processes you encounter.


Just ask the students who’ve already taken this course:

★★★★★ " I thought I had a good understanding of flowcharts, I was incorrect. It's more than knowing what shapes to use. This course taught me what I need to know, especially for organizing the shapes into a meaningful flowchart. I really love that I'll be able to use and understand swim lanes (I didn't even know what they were called).” - Jamie

★★★★★ “Very informative and easy to understand. For someone who has not experienced any lessons on flowcharts, I seem to have grasped how flowcharts can be made and how it can impact certain business processes.” – Rouel

★★★★★ “This course is very insightful and at the right speed for beginners wanting to know basics in process mapping. The activities are very helpful and at the right difficulty level where you do learn things and it is not just a very simple exercise that you could have done without the course.” – Maria


The BA Guide’s TEACH, SHOW, DO technique

This course makes use of The BA Guide’s TEACH, SHOW, DO technique – a method I’ve developed over my years of experience in the industry training and managing Business Analysts. This technique will help ensure you with total comprehension of the topic at hand and maximum information retention long after the course is finished.

  • TEACH – You first learn the concept, in detail, from the ground up. But I won’t simply teach you the concept in isolation – you’ll learn HOW and WHEN to use it too.
  • SHOW – Once you fully understand the concept, we enhance that by walking you step-by-step through real-world examples – so you can see exactly how the concept would pan out if you were to apply it in the real world.
  • DO – Firmly cement everything you’ve learned so far and put your new knowledge to the test by completing the included activities and quizzes. Validate you’ve fully understood the concept and greatly increase your ability to retain the information you’ve learned.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” – Benjamin Franklin


What bonuses are included?

As anyone who has studied one of my courses before will know, it simply wouldn’t be a course by The BA Guide if I didn’t include some value-packed bonus material!

  • Draw.io Process Flowchart Template
  • Draw.io Process Flowchart Template – Multi-Levels
  • PowerPoint Slide decks (in PDF form)

★★★★★ "He has a very good way to explain things, and also thinking in not native English speakers like me, he has a very understandable accent. I enjoyed very much this course, I'm going to apply what I learned here in a real project. This is the perfect first course to learn process mapping, and I'm sure after this I'm going to be able to learn more just reading about process mapping.” – Marcos

★★★★★ "Jeremy does what many instructors in Udemy fail: explains concepts thoroughly without being repetitive or boring. I really enjoyed this course. Some say that you know you had a great learning session when you end up with more questions. I do, and I would like to know many more concepts that the course did not explore, but now I feel confident on how to approach further into Process Flowcharts. I even used it for my job. Cannot recommend it highly enough.” - Jose

Come learn with more than 330,000 students from around the world!

Hello! My name is Jeremy Aschenbrenner, but many know me better as The BA Guide, and I'm happy you are here.

I’m a veteran Business Analyst with thousands of projects completed throughout my career. I've managed business analysis projects for companies in diverse industries including health care, telecom, automotive, transportation, consumer packaged goods, car rental agency, food and beverage, financial services, consulting, and more.

Through personal experience, I quickly learned that business analysis can be confusing and even intimidating. There’s endless business jargon, technical terms, techniques, and methodologies to learn, and countless visual diagrams, artifacts, elicitation sessions, interfaces, and KPIs to wrap your head around. I’ve been there and learned all of that. Many years ago, I also learned a valuable lesson about myself: I really enjoy mentoring others. This was the inspiration for The BA Guide.

Here is where I come in and offer guidance.

I take that broad world of business analysis and build a structure and processes within it. I then break down those individual segments until they are easy to understand by using real-life examples and scenarios to make them relatable. Finally, to help solidify and reinforce your knowledge and understanding of these key concepts and processes, I follow up with activities and quizzes.

Whether you’re an aspiring or current Business Analyst, The BA Guide courses are created with you, the learner, in mind. By design, the courses I’ve created are optimized for flexible learning in video format so you can learn at your own pace, when it’s convenient for you.

If your goal is to explore the world of business analysis or upskill and advance your career, whether that be as a Business Analyst, an Agile Analyst, a Process Analyst, a Product Owner, an AMAZING Administrator, or anything in-between, I'd love to help.

Feel free to post on the course Q&A board, message me on Udemy, or connect with me on social media. I look forward to helping you reach your personal and professional goals.

Happy learning!
