By attending this 4 day course and workshop, participants will build confidence and the skills needed to identify problems and objectives, visually model requirements, manage requirements, prepare for elicitation sessions, conduct interviews, deal with difficult stakeholders, and apply models during the elicitation process using a combination of lectures, group activities and individual activities designed to provide an opportunity to learn, explore and test in a “safe” environment. The integrated workshop allows for additional practice on the concepts where students can apply them to their own project challenges.
Requirements Core Concepts Day 1: This day is the perfect introduction for anyone looking to hone their team’s skills and knowledge around gathering requirements. This course also helps experienced business analysis teams level-set across an organization on requirements terminology and concepts. This course emphasizes the importance in understanding business objectives to manage scope. This course will teach the students to recognize different types of requirements and get an introduction to techniques for elicitation, scope management, models and requirements review.
Requirements Visualization Day 2: This day provides intermediate and advanced business analysts, project managers, and product managers an incredibly powerful addition to their skill set through requirements visualization. As an extension of the first day, it dives deeper into requirements models and when to use them. Understanding how to select models provides you with the ability to communicate with any audience – customers, developers, product managers, and senior management.
Elicitation & Facilitation Day 3: This day provides intermediate and advanced business analysts, project managers, and product managers a set of elicitation and facilitation skills fundamental to their roles. The course teaches you where to start with requirements elicitation on a project, including how to build an elicitation plan and individual agendas for elicitation sessions. The course builds confidence and the skills you need to prepare for sessions, to conduct interviews, to apply models during the elicitation process, and to take effective notes.
Workshop Day 4: This day encourages the students to practice the concepts from the previous three days of the class by applying them to their own personal projects. The instructor will facilitate the students working in groups and alone on business objectives models, business data diagrams (or ERDs), ecosystem maps, report tables and display-action-response models, process flows, a requirements mapping matrix/traceability matrix, and any other models that the students select. The class will be able to use more relevant examples than previously practiced so that they can take the work products back to their jobs after training.
