Business Analysis Life Cycle

PT8160
Summary
The goal of this workshop is to help learners develop and apply the skills and techniques needed to elicit, assess, critically analyze and validate requirements to meet the business needs. Building on the IIBA(r) Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK(r)) industry standard, participants will also learn how to assemble organizational information, effectively facilitate groups, build a shared understanding between various stakeholders and the project team, and communicate solutions that will help achieve an organization's goals. The workshop will provide a focused overview of both the "hard" and "soft" skills necessary for business analysis and an introduction to the processes included in the IIBA BABOK(r). This workshop uses an interactive capstone exercise that requires participants to demonstrate the skills they have learned and to apply those skills in a simulated project.
