    In a clause, you have a subject, a verb and possibly an object. The order is very rigid in English, being subject-verb-object. So in the sentence "Mary had a lamb", Mary is a subject and therefore a noun (a proper noun as well, because it is capitalised), a verb characterised by an inflection expressing past tense ("had" as opposed to "have") and a lamb is the object and therefore also a noun.

    When learning a word, you should learn along with it what part of speech it is. If you have difficulty in doing so, try to think of its meaning or if you can't remember/don't know it, think of what it is not.

    PS: "My experience includes Change Control, business process, requirement...
    "I have developed (a) new process(es) and..." (A noun that does not have a definite article "the" must either have an "a/an" or be plural, without an "a/an")

    etc. etc. etc.

    I fear I have not well understood your question, but you wanted simple. This is simple. Nouns are things, people or ideas. Verbs are actions.

    if above are nouns ( proper noun) , then why they are not in capital? If they should not be in capital the below nouns( proper noun) should not be in capital as well. Am I right?

    They are not proper nouns, merely common nouns, like sand, spit, food, dirt: the simple things of everyday life.

    Maybe I'm slowly starting to get your question. Proper nouns refer to a specific person, country or similar thing. They are capitalized. Examples: English, French, George, Australia, the King, Christmas.
