In today's complex projects, there is no more critical function than the function performed by business analysts. Business analysts serve as the link between the business interests served by the project and the technology that will be employed to deliver the functionality required by it. They are responsible for translating business needs into language that systems analysts can turn into a solution, for framing the problem and identifying the most appropriate solution. They keep the project focused on the needs for which it was initiated. They are often charged with gathering, documenting and tracking requirements, especially in software development and implementation projects.
It is designed for those who already have some experience in business analysis but need to develop a better grounding in best practices and methods and for those who are in need of a quick introduction to those methods and skills that they need to apply to current or upcoming projects.
This workshop is intended to be compliant with the standards for business analysis and requirements definition, the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (hereafter described as the BABOK), which is being prepared by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA). This workshop has been constructed to be BABOK compliant because the BABOK represents the best thinking about business analysis, because it will become the standard for business analysis, and because some participants may wish to achieve IIBA certification as a business analyst. Because the BABOK is evolving and is not in its final form, this course is based on the frameworks established by the BABOK and its current form. This workshop will be updated as that standard becomes closer to finalization.
