1 1 BAL2-1 Professional Skills for the Business Analyst OVERVIEW 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. The course also explores and lets attendees practice a simple process for validating and verifying to ensure they are well documented. Also, attendees learn the importance of traceability and how to construct a traceability matrix. The course concludes with considerations and techniques for creating a package for maximum communication value, reviewing and managing. Plus, attendees also learn a repeatable process for verifying that are included in the final solution. DURATION Course Duration: 2 days (14 hours) AUDIENCE People that have project experience working with a variety of roles (BA, QA, PM, sponsors) but have not had formal BA training. New business analysts (transferred from the business, or from a different IT job) and have had some formal BA training will also benefit. Experienced BAs and project managers who want a more formal and industry-standard business analysis approach will gain new skills and methods from this course.
