This 2-day course is appropriate for anyone that needs to learn how to support and manage requirements to support high-quality Business Analysis work. Participants will practice how to document, prioritize and manage requirements throughout the requirements lifecycle. By using the right practices and approaches the Business Analyst will maximize the value of the solution from inception, through implementation and support on-going in the system.
Our goal at Bob the BA is to help you think, learn and work differently so you can make an impact back on the job. If you always do what you have always done, you will end up right where you were before you were trained right? So at Bob the BA, we take a different approach because we know we learn best by doing and not through lecture. Our courses are always hands-on, practicing through exercises, activities, facilitated discussions, case studies, role play, workshops, printed materials and presentations.
