Step-by-step approach

To master the objectives of e-learning, every module has a step-by-step approach. Lucy, your digital e-learning instructor, will guide you through these steps with elaborate explanations, supported by visualizations and exercises.

Every module can be completed in approximately two hours straight or over a period of time. Upon completion of the modules, a certificate will be awarded.

Module 1: Basic Bowtie Methodology

This module describes the basics of the bowtie method by going through the steps of building a basic bowtie diagram. It is particularly useful as a refresher for those who have already been trained in the bowtie method. This module can also be useful for those who would like to familiarize themselves with the bowtie method, but do not need in-depth knowledge as they will not develop bowties themselves, but need to interpret the diagrams and/or make risk-based decisions based on the diagrams.

Basic Bowtie Methodology equips participants with definitions of all the basic elements of the bowtie. It gives guidelines for creating a good bowtie and uses exercises to help participants implement these guidelines. The course starts with a brief introduction into bowties and then follows the steps to create a bowtie diagram. For each step, the theoretical lessons are followed by an exercise.

Module 2: Bowtie Diagram Construction with BowTieXP

This module covers the basic functionality of the BowTieXP software enabling you to create a bowtie diagram and to use it for communication purposes in multiple ways. It is suitable for those who will use BowTieXP to create bowtie diagrams and also for reporting. No previous experience with the software is required to participate in this module, but the module is not meant to replace face-to-face, in-depth BowTieXP training from one of our partners.

The module starts with a general introduction to the software and continues with how to construct a bowtie diagram, how to adjust and link reference information such as effectiveness values, job titles, activities, document links, risk matrix scores, reports, etc.
