BA110 Business Analysis Planning and Monitoring

Certificate Track: Business Analysis

The first step in conducting a business analysis is to identify stakeholders, gain an understanding of the challenge, plan for conducting the analysis, and establish a monitoring system to ensure desired results. 

This course helps participants understand the tasks involved in planning and monitoring a business analysis effort. This course includes how to identify stakeholders, define their roles and responsibilities, and prepare a communications plan to ensure strong relationships through the effort.  Participants learn how to identify the basic tasks for the analysis, and how to estimate those tasks as well as associated deliverables. Participants also learn how to develop metrics to be used for monitoring the business analysis work.

A solution to a business challenge can only be as strong as the understanding of the challenge. This course will help participants plan for the development of requirements, including tracing and prioritizing them to ensure the analysis effort provides best results.
