This 6-day workshop comprises of they key learnings and outcomes from both the Business Analysis Fundamentals – Level 1 and Business Analysis in Practice – Level 2 workshops and is ideal for individuals wanting to undergo both.
Business Analysis Fundamentals – Level 1:
Business strategy execution depends upon developing and implementing solutions that provide demonstrable value to an organisation. Optimal value however can only be realised when solutions are based on precise requirements that fully address an issue or opportunity within the context of the “whole organisation and environment.”
Our three day interactive and practical course provides you with proven tools, techniques and processes to help deliver solutions that satisfy stakeholder requirements and deliver expected benefits to the organisation.
Aligned with A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) current research, and best practice industry standards, this course enables business analysts to effectively undertake their role and to gain an appreciation of the knowledge areas required for formal ECBA™ certification (Entry Level Certification in Business Analysis™).
This course provides participants with the fundamental knowledge of the processes and disciplines that enable the delivery of objective requirements that add maximum value to an organisation.
By combining a practical and pragmatic approach to business analysis, aligned with industry standards, this course will provide participants with the opportunity to prepare for the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) industry certification ECBA™.
Utilising real-life scenarios develops participant’s skills, enabling them to put into practice tasks and techniques that allows them to gain general knowledge and practical experience.
Business Analysis in Practice – Level 2:
Business Analysis is a world recognised profession. Increasingly projects are coming under more and more scrutiny to ensure that quality requirements satisfy overall value, to both the customer and the business regardless of project methods.
A competent, results oriented Business Analyst with 2-3 years’ experience can demonstrate their ability to apply knowledge and skills in small, less complex projects, with little to no guidance. By recommending a potential course of action, making minor modifications to guidelines as deemed appropriate and pragmatic, a competent Business Analyst can demonstrate to customers and peers the use of industry standards.
With a focus on application of tasks, activities and techniques, our Business Analysis in Practice Course – Level 2 CCBA® Certification, provides practitioners with an in-depth opportunity to develop solution requirements that encompass organisational and environment factors such as business processes, systems and organisational culture.
By delivering solutions that are aligned with organisational strategy that can be traced directly and unambiguously to requirements participants will learn to provide essential support during the adoption of organisational change.
Aside from possessing the required technical skills, a truly successful Business Analyst will also possess a range of interpersonal skills that allow them to manage difficult stakeholders and situations. Key skills for success include analytical and critical thinking, superior communication, leadership, negotiation, facilitation and conflict resolution.
This Business Analysis course has been designed with all of the above in mind. With the best practice principles of A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) V3.0 knowledge areas and processes as its foundation. This course builds upon participants’ existing skills and knowledge by way of a guided tour through a series of rigorous and real-life scenarios, problems and issues faced by Business Analysts today.
This course provides participants with a standardised and systematic approach for eliciting, analysing and managing business requirements that form the basis for successful solutions delivered to the organisation.
It uses a real life case study approach in order to plan, manage and execute a detailed requirements development process, to successfully manage stakeholders, and to reduce organisational risk by understanding the impact of change across the business.
For the purposes of certification preparation the emphasis of this course will be on the following topical areas; Elicitation & Collaboration, Requirements Lifecycle Management and Requirements Analysis and Design Definition.
