Course Description

Proposing and developing solutions needed to grow the business includes steps for gathering and analyzing requirements. The most common area where this is seen is for technology software and solutions. This Requirements Lifecycle course provides the essential knowledge and skills needed to effectively gather and analyze what the business requires to develop and implement improvements. Whether these improvements are to a business process, or the development or purchase of a new software solution, many of the methods and techniques work across several areas of a business. Topics include identifying users; use case analysis; elicitation techniques, types of requirements; documenting requirements; fit criteria, and traceability. This course focuses on the analysis, documentation, and change management of requirements.

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.
