Introduction to Business Analysis and Essential Competencies

Often, and usually with the best intentions, organizations hastily overhaul processes or implement new systems in an effort to quickly fix or address a problem, only to discover that it wasn't the right solution after all the time and money wasted, and the problem continues. Business analysis aims to not only properly diagnose an issue, but determine the best solution to fix it permanently. Business analysts, who undertake this work, require a unique combination of skills and knowledge to be successful in this function. This course provides an overview of what business analysis is, including fundamental concepts and knowledge areas as prescribed in A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) – Version 2.0 by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®). This course also covers the essential competencies required for effective business analysis, including behavioral characteristics, business and software knowledge, and communication and interaction skills. This course provides a foundational knowledge base of business analysis information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the IIBA®’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) certification exam.

Introduction to Business Analysis Planning

In business analysis, there is no prescribed route to take. Each project, task, or process initiative is different, and every environment you work in is different. Therefore, it's essential you map out your business analysis approach based on the elements concerning your particular project, environment, and organization. It's equally important to clearly determine who your stakeholders are, who is responsible for what, and how much effort will be required for project deliverables. This course provides an overview of planning a business analysis approach, using techniques like the decision analysis approach, process modeling and structured walkthroughs as prescribed in A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) – Version 2.0 by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®). This course also provides an overview of conducting a stakeholder analysis, including techniques such as RACI matrices and stakeholder maps. Finally, techniques for planning business analysis activities such as estimating required efforts are introduced. This course provides a foundational knowledge base of business analysis information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the IIBA®’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) certification exam.

Planning Business Analysis Communication and Monitoring

Most business analyst professionals recognize the importance of identifying and performing business analysis activities in order to successfully deliver requirements and meet project goals. But what about planning and managing how these business analysis activities are actually performed? A proposed structure and schedule for communications, a requirements management plan, and a clear plan to ensure business analysis activities are executed as efficiently as possible are all key elements of successful business analysis. This course provides an overview of planning business analysis communication using techniques like the structured walkthrough as prescribed in A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) – Version 2.0 by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®). This course also provides an overview of the plan requirements management process, including techniques like problem tracking and decision analysis to create the requirements management plan. Finally, techniques for managing business analysis performance such as lessons learned workshops and utilizing metrics and key performance indicators are introduced. This course provides a foundational knowledge base of business analysis information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the IIBA®’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) certification exam.

Business Analysis Requirements Elicitation

The first step in creating any solution is to review stakeholder needs and analyze what tools are available to address those needs. Without understanding stakeholder requirements, you may find a solution to the wrong problem. And without understanding the tools and technologies involved, you may aim for impossible goals. It's equally important to ensure you document and confirm requirements so you have a solid plan to address stakeholder needs. This course provides an overview of requirements elicitation as prescribed in A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) – Version 2.0 by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®). Specifically, this course introduces the importance of activities like brainstorming to prepare for requirements elicitation. Techniques for conducting requirements elicitation like document and interface analyses are also covered. Finally, this course details how to document elicitation results through techniques like prototyping, and how to conduct interviews in order to confirm elicitation results. This course provides a foundational knowledge base of business analysis information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the IIBA®’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) certification exam.
