BA113 Assessing and Validating Solutions
About This Course
If the solution isn’t living up to the needs of an organization, then it is necessary to find out why. This course provides an overview of techniques that help measure an implemented solution to determine if it is delivering the expected value.
Participants will learn methods for investigating limitations that may be rooted in the solution or in the organization itself and make active assessments of various solutions, putting techniques into practice immediately. These activities may be performed to assess and validate business processes, organizational structures, outsourcing agreements, software applications, and any other component of the solution. Participants will also learn how to ensure that solutions that have been implemented are providing the results intended and best serving the organization.
