Course Description

This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst. In today’s competitive environment, business analyst’s role is no longer of simply ‘A bridge between Business and IT’. There has been a paradigm shift in the role of business analyst in recent years. In today’s resource scare environment, customers expect business analyst to have knowledge and skills to conduct enterprise analysis, perform end-to-end business processes re-engineering, identify bottlenecks in their value streams, and most importantly develop solutions that would solve their problems and integrate their vision-strategy-technology towards a common goal.

Requirements elicitation and documenting them is a very small subset of a modern day business analyst’s role. In addition to the business analysis skills, project management skills are equally vital for a business analyst. Since the natural career trajectory of a business analyst curve towards project management discipline, we have included key topics of project management as well, which in a ‘real-world’ scenario, any experienced business analyst must be familiar with. This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst.
