                            An Overview of Business Analysis Techniques and Methods

Business Analysis represents a critical factor in project success. Especially in the IT world, disconnects can exist between the
producers of the solution, the developers, and the business users who need the functionality that the project will provide. The
Business Analyst is the conduit between these two worlds, bridging the communication gap with their unique grasp on both sides of
the equation.

This two-day course, designed around the six knowledge areas identified by the International Institute of Business Analysis as
Enterprise Analysis, Requirements Planning and Management, Requirements Elicitation, Requirements Analysis and Documentation,
Requirements Communication, and Solution Assessment and Validation, will introduce you to the complex world of the BA and
prepare you for further training.
