Business Analysis Foundation

Overview

Whether you are new to business analysis, or are experienced and want a more formal approach, it’s essential to know and practice the “fundamentals.” This course trains participants to help business clients articulate their needs and wants, and to document them clearly, concisely, and completely. By grasping this core Business Analyst (BA) skill, BAs can contribute significantly to successful projects and the products they create.

Through a realistic case study and interviews, participants discover and then practice writing “good” requirements.  The course also explores and
lets attendees practice a simple process for validating and verifying requirements to ensure they are well- documented.  Also, attendees learn the importance of traceability and how to construct a traceability
matrix.
