Effective Business Requirements Course

11 sessions available starting from $2,200.00

Subject: Business

Ages: All ages

Skill level: All difficulty levels

Requirements Engineering concepts and techniques, and good requirements practices.
Many of the problems encountered in business information systems implementations are the direct result of shortcomings in the processes and practices used to gather, understand, document, confirm and manage the requirements for the system.

This course is intended for those who want to enhance their current business analysis knowledge, cut through the jargon, and understanding how to remove many of these obstacles. The course focuses on teaching the participants some key techniques and methods of Requirements Engineering by highlighting the importance of the BA taking ownership of the requirements from generation through to validation and requirements management.

Requirements Engineering concepts and techniques, and good requirements practices.
Many of the problems encountered in business information systems implementations are the direct result of shortcomings in the processes and practices used to gather, understand, document, confirm and manage the requirements for the system.

This course is intended for those who want to enhance their current business analysis knowledge, cut through the jargon, and understanding how to remove many of these obstacles. The course focuses on teaching the participants some key techniques and methods of Requirements Engineering by highlighting the importance of the BA taking ownership of the requirements from generation through to validation and requirements management.

What's The Benefit?

Industry studies around the world suggest that five out of every six software projects fail or are "challenged" - over time and/or over budget. Three major factors appear consistently as reasons for this lack of success:

* Poorly defined requirements
* Poor management of changes to requirements
* Insufficient customer or user involvement in defining and managing requirements.

If business analysts don't provide detailed business and software requirements, then the programmers will invent them. But the decisions that software developers make are often different from the decisions a subject matter expert would make under the same circumstances. Who should be defining your business: the people who work in it, or programmers?

There can be up to a 200:1 payoff in ensuring that requirements are defined completely, correctly, precisely, consistently, and unambiguously - and agreed by all stakeholders prior to system implementation - compared with waiting until the "maintenance" phase to get things right.

The techniques and tools conveyed in this course have been shown to result in time and cost savings of up to 50% and a return on investment of up to 1200% in real-world projects.

Intended For

Business analysts, analysts/designers, requirement engineers, project leaders, and project managers.

Prerequisites

Participants are expected to have an understanding of business analysis activities.

A suggested lead-in course is Software Education's Business Systems Analysis course.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

* Understand the objectives, processes and activities involved in defining testable requirements of different types
* Understand how to negotiate and prioritise conflicting requirements
* Understand how to define and use requirements quality metrics in the process of defining and evaluating requirements
* Learn how to run a Peer Review session
* Establish detailed traceability between Business Requirements and other project deliverables
* Understand the importance of consistent use approved requirements templates
* Ensure effective participation on projects by business Stakeholders and SMEs
* Learn about the challenges and take away some tips for moving from requirements to design.
