Course Description

Project management is a time tested, proven approach to delivering products and/or services within the constraints of scope, schedule, and cost. In managing projects, the business analyst role has increased in importance and changed over time because of the complexities of integrating new technologies and new processes in to dynamic and ever changing business environments. Business analysis complements the project management function and focuses on defining and validating a solution to meet business needs and goals that align with the business strategy. Topics include business analysis planning, needs assessment, project planning and initiation, stakeholder analysis, risk planning, and schedule / resource allocations. Using a practical learning approach, students will create a business case and project charter, as well as supporting artifacts that support these two important project deliverables.

The course utilizes best practices from the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) and the Project Management Institute (PMI®) Guide to Business Analysis, the industry standards for the Business Analyst profession.
