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.

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.

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.

Business Analysis: Introduction to Requirements Analysis

When you have a set of dependent tasks to complete, it's not feasible to just randomly pick and choose which tasks to perform and in which order. The same is true for requirements in business analysis. Requirements must be analyzed appropriately to ensure they are prioritized and organized in the most appropriate way to ensure the success of a project or initiative. And mapping out what a process or system will look like with requirements in place provides a detailed view for the team to work towards. This course provides an introduction to requirements analysis 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 covers methods for prioritizing requirements such as a MoSCoW analysis, and introduces the use of techniques like data flow diagrams to organize requirements. The course also explains using techniques like non-functional requirements analysis and state diagrams for specifying and modeling requirements. This course provides a foundational knowledge base of business analysis information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations.

Business Analysis: Verify and Validate Requirements

If you want to build a boat, you need to know what is required. You need to check and make sure you have what you require in order to do the job properly. Instructions on how to build an airplane won't help you build your boat, but knowing that you need a welding torch will. When working on any project, you also need as much information as possible about anything that may influence it. This might include how much money you have to work with, how long before the project needs to be completed, and who can work on the project.
