Business Process Modelling (BPM) and how it fits with requirements gathering

Is Business Process Modelling still relevant? What standards can we use? Can I use BPM with agile and user stories?

We have had lots of requests for a BPM webinar, so this is your chance to ask our expert community panel your questions about BPM and how it fits with requirements gathering.

This webinar addresses Business Process Modeling and how it fits requirements gathering. The major topics covered were as followed: How to gather business process information. The common practiced methods of business process modeling. How to implement BPM within an agile project. Recommended tools and the benefits for a process library. And finally, how can you document business processes and requirements together.
