Gathering and Analyzing Business Requirements

Why take this course?

After completing this course, you will be able to
  • explain how a Project Charter can serve as a guide to business analysis.
  • describe the purpose and characteristics of a "business requirement."
  • conduct appropriate business analysis activities throughout the development lifecycle.
  • create a requirements document to frame the gathering and analysis of business requirements.
  • identify and document business requirements and rules.
  • perform rudimentary data and process analysis.
  • analyze how processes and data are related.
  • document these process and data relationships using a variety of models.
  • describe the essential elements of a Use Case.
  • create a comprehensive Use Case Framework.
This intensive three-day workshop teaches you the necessary skills to gather, analyze and document business requirements. You learn by developing a Business Requirements Document (BRD) that captures most the information needed to design and test a software solution. The extensive hands-on exercises allow plenty of time to work through new concepts. Our practical, down-to-earth approach leaves you with a concrete understanding of analyzing and documenting great business requirements.
Who should attend?
The course is intended for Business Analysts and those who need to understand and document business requirements as a precursor to solution development and testing.
Any prerequisites?
A general understanding of business computer systems and the systems development lifecycle (SDLC) process is highly recommended.
