The learning experience

This Process Mapping programme is comprised of 10 key topics on Process Mapping. There is a final assignment that consists of submitting your process map for review.

Case study examples are used throughout the programme to demonstrate the practical application of the Process Mapping in a healthcare setting.

This programme will be delivered online via Webinar, enabling a collaborative learning environment as well as providing peer to peer learning opportunities.

As you progress through this programme, you will develop the ability to:

  • Plan out your process mapping activity
  • Identify and communicate with stakeholders effectively
  • Map out and document a ‘Current State’ map of your process
  • Identify the pain points within the process for improvement
  • Understand how to move your process from its Current State to a re-designed Future State



At the end of the programme participants will demonstrate key learnings by developing a Process Map that will be assessed for certification. This map should demonstrate the various elements of a process map that have featured throughout the programme.

What Participants Say

“I undertook the HSE Lean Processing Mapping course recently, I found the course to be very practicable and useful if my endeavours in mapping out the “To be” and “As is” processes of work that I was currently undertaken.  The course gets you thinking about aspects of a process that you would normally not look at. I would strongly recommend this course to anybody involved in streamlining processes to make them more efficient and cost effective”
