Functional Skills

Business Process knowledge is conventionally acquired through experience of performing transactional or knowledge-based work. To comply with segregation of duties, most processes get fragmented to task or activity level. Thus often professionals lack wing-to-wing understanding of the entire business process. Further, business processes are often transformed, optimized, or reengineered to achieve world class productivity. This consequentially leads to rapid change in traditional operational job content and sharpens the learning curve. There exists huge growing demand for a dynamic workforce with agility to transition from one function to another. Start your core functional knowledge development here which is based on industry best practices and emerging technologies.
