About cogNIAM®

CogNIAM® is a unique method that transfers knowledge into usable business models and based on iterative protocols. To achieve this, cogNIAM® uses natural language and concrete examples. This ensures that the resulting models are understandable and verifiable for all. cogNIAM® combines open world standards to capture processes, data, rules, semantics and the coherence between them.

The unique advantages

You obtain your knowledge directly from the source. Our trainers have broad practical experience with national and international organizations and have been actively involved in developing various global standards, including BPMN 2.0, DMN and FBM

Our method results in 100% complete, correct and consistent requirements specifications.

A business case that you yourself have selected will be used during the course of the workshop. This makes it possible to directly implement the knowledge you have acquired for the benefit of your organization.


The cogNIAM® method

During this workshop we use cogNIAM, a method developed by PNA. A method to map, not only processes, but also data models, rules and semantics of an organization. Because of the simple rules that make up this method, it can be learned by any knowledge worker. Using this method, knowledge becomes structured and integrated into a knowledge model. From this model the knowledge can be used productively within the organization in many different ways and disciplines. For example:

  • To demonstrate that the organization complies with the set rules.

  • As a starting point for an IT project to save valuable analysis time.

  • To introduce new employees to the processes within the organization.
