The Business Analysis Essentials class is an introductory course designed to provide participants with a basic understanding of the benefits, functions and impact a business analyst has within an organization. The course discusses the business analysis process as it is applied throughout a project as well as the pre-project activities that comprise strategy analysis.

After completing this course, participants will fully understand the characteristics of the business analyst role and the components that comprise the profession of business analysis.  Students will obtain a solid working vocabulary to enable effective communication about business analysis activities and deliverables across the project team.

Our BA04 Eliciting and Writing Effective Requirements Class Scheduled August 27-29, 2018 is Guaranteed to Run!

Successful projects are built on the foundation of clearly defined requirements but according to PMI’s August 2014 Pulse of the Profession® report, 47% of unsuccessful projects still fail due to poor requirements management practices and a majority of companies are not valuing requirements management as a critical competency for their projects and strategic initiatives[1]

With elicitation serving as a major component of the requirements process, it is imperative that business analysts maintain high competency levels in elicitation practices and technique use to help organizations overcome the requirements related challenges faced on projects. Regardless whether you are a practitioner just starting off your career in business analysis or whether you have been performing the role for some years, this course will provide insight into the latest thoughts on elicitation and writing effective requirements and present a number of current techniques that are being applied on projects across industries today.

Intended Audience: This course is intended for beginner to intermediate business and requirements analysts who are looking to improve their elicitation and requirements writing and documentation skills. This course is also a great fit for technical writers, product and software testers, project managers, and product owners who work closely with business analysts or who perform some form of business analysis themselves.

Course Objectives:

You will revisit the foundational concepts of business analysis and discuss the importance of requirements to project success. A deep exploration of requirements and requirements categories is provided. You will learn how to perform a deep exploration of your stakeholders as a starting point to the requirements process. You will be presented with guidance and helpful instruction for planning and preparing for elicitation and documentation. A number of popular and common elicitation techniques are explored. The best practices for writing and documenting requirements are shared. A thorough presentation of requirements and solution validation is provided.

 Note: This course is compliant with IIBA’s Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK® Guide) version 3 standard in business analysis and is aligned with and upholds the practices as discussed in PMI’s Business Analysis for Practitioners: A Practice Guide.
