Essentials of Business Processes and Information Systems Essentials of Business Processes and Information Systems By Simha R. Magal, Jeffrey Word Essentials of Business Processes and Information Systems bridges the gap between the fundamentals of how businesses operate (processes) and the tools that business people use to accomplish their tasks (systems). Business students, regardless of their functional discipline, will be able to apply the real-world concepts discussed in this course immediately upon entering the workforce. As more and more businesses adopt enterprise systems globally, it becomes increasingly important for business schools to offer a process-based curriculum to better reflect the realities of modern business. This course has been designed to reflect, in a practical and accessible format, how real-world business processes are managed and executed.

Students begin with a quick, chapter-level diagnostic to determine their initial level of understanding, and they can use the dashboard and quick reports to see what topics they know and don’t know.
