4 Business Analysis Getting Started An Entrance into the World of Business Analysis Why Business Analysis? Business Analysis comprises Requirements Engineering and more. But what exactly distinguishes Business Analysis from traditional Requirements Engineering and who in the project team is responsible for this? This Getting Started course generally handles the question about the meaning of Business Analysis in a project. As a large percentage of projects still fail due to insufficient or misunderstood requirements, Business Analysis is gaining more and more attention. By carefully considering Stakeholder needs and expectations, Business Analysis goes far beyond Requirements Engineering, to mention only one of the topics which make the difference. By working on case studies, the participants will be shown structured approaches. Using the results, the students can discover the necessary requirements, prioritize and validate them. This is very important because primarily those requirements which are related to Business needs should be brought to realization. Business Analyse The term Business Analysis can be understood in various ways, similar to Project Management. The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) in Toronto, Canada, defines Business Analysis as a collection of approaches and techniques to understand the structure and the rules within an organization as well as its employees and then to suggest solutions in order to help the organization. Solutions do not automatically lead to IT- Solutions; however, nowadays nearly every large improvement is only possible because of IT or is at least supported by it. Potential These days, there are many organizations with effective project management systems. However, Business Analysis is not that far developed. This means that Requirements Management is mostly done by employees or the Project Manager themselves. There is large room for improvement as weaknesses always damage projects and maybe even stop them from being From The Guide to Business Analysis Body of Knowledge Business Analysis Planning and Monitoring Elicitation Requirements Management and Communication Enterprise Analysis Requirements Analysis Solution Assessment and Validation Getting Started with effective. It is quite obvious that a project cannot be successful if the needs are not understood properly and the problems are not solved. The process of learning only by mistakes takes too long and is too expensive to be useful in the business landscape of the 21st century. Content Participants will be shown how to deal with Requirements Specifications and Solution Concepts and will work on appropriate case studies. They will also learn the importance of distinguishing between what and how. We also concentrate on stakeholder management and dealing with ongoing changes or upgrades, so called moving targets. - Business Analysis Fundamentals - CCBA / CBAP Exam Preparation - Planning and Managing Requirements - Eliciting and Writing Good Business Require ts - Requirements Modeling - Business Process Management and Modeling - Enterprise Analysis for IT-Business Analysts - Facilitation Skills for Project Manager and Business Analysts - Project Management Fundamentals - PMP Exam Preparation - Risk Management in IT-Projects - Applied Project Management and Business Analysis to effectively introduce CRM Document good Requirements; clear, precise and complete Use simple templates to capture different kinds of requirements Use models to effectively work out requirements, to analyse, document and trace requirements until they can be packaged and communicated to Business in order to get an approval Leverage the Project success with requirements which satisfy the Business Need Reduce re-work on requirements by ensuring to initially get the right requirements Reduce gaps of understanding by continuously verifying and validating requirements This course is specially catered to beginners of Business Analysis and Requirements Engineering.
