Description

OVERVIEW

This extended basic course is aimed at those who wish to deal intensively and methodically with the topic of business analysis including requirements engineering, typically because they are actively involved in these activities.

The course is closely based on BABOK®, an internationally recognized guideline for business analysis.
This course is “endorsed” by the IIBA, offers 24 CDUs and can be used for the CCBA® or CBAP® exam admission. In contrast to our exam preparation courses, where you are specifically prepared with English materials for an English exam, this extended basic course focuses more on the practical application of business analysis, in German with English and German materials.

GOALS

  • Document “good” requirements; clear, precise and complete.
  • Use simple, handy templates to record different types of requirements.
  • Use models to effectively identify requirements, analyze, document, and track these requirements to present a complete “package” to the department for approval.
  • Increase project success with requirements that meet the business need.
  • Reduce the need for rework by correctly identifying requirements the first time.
  • Reduce gaps in understanding requirements through proper validation and verification.
