About cogNIAM®

cogNIAM® is a unique method which, on the basis of repeatable protocols, helps to convert knowledge into business models. In doing so, cogNIAM® uses natural language and examples to keep the models understandable and validatable for everyone. cogNIAM® combines open world standards to record processes, data, rules and semantics in a coherent way.

The unique advantages

  • You obtain your knowledge directly from the source. PNA is the founder of the cogNIAM® method and was at the cradle of various world standards, including BPMN 2.0, DMN and FBM. Our teachers have extensive practical experience in (inter)national organisations.
  • Our method results in 100% complete, correct and consistent requirement specifications.
  • Use your own business case during the workshop. This way, the knowledge you have gained can be used immediately within your organisation.
