Fundamentals of Business Analysis

  • 16 - 17 February 2020 Dubai

Defining Business Needs & Solution Scope

  • 18 - 20 February 2020 Dubai
  • 08 - 10 September 2020 Dubai

Overview

Defining Business Needs & Solution Scope applies an approach to using business analysis skills in the change initiative, or even before. Prior to launching an initiative to affect any sort of organizational change it is essential to be clear about the desired business outcomes, determine a solution scope, identify and assess all the viable options, scrutinize each of the options and then make sure all that is involved in the change initiative, including required costs, resources and risks, is fully understood.

The business case establishes the framework for a successful change by revealing all of the potential pitfalls and tells executives the whole story before the investment is made. A good business case is honest, unbiased, objective and well-socialized; key stakeholders contribute and review before it is formally presented.

The skills of business analysis can help many professionals identify the right types of solutions to solve their business challenges and build the business cases to justify those recommendations. Defining Business Needs & Solution Scope is an intermediate to advanced level course designed to provide the knowledge needed to begin working on identifying business needs and analyzing the benefits of various solution options to help limit the choices before work gets underway or even before the solution work is chartered. In particular, this course “precedes” the typical project lifecycle as it sets up the benefits, value and possibilities that the change may bring, which then become the focus of the initiation phase of a project to implement those changes and execute the strategy.

Facilitation Techniques for Business Analysis

  • 29 - 30 March 2020 Dubai
  • 11 - 12 October 2020 Dubai

Overview

Those practicing business analysis spend a significant amount of time facilitating sessions to gather requirements and other information, yet many facilitators lack formal training on how to effectively do so.

A successful facilitation session results in requirements and information that can be analysed and worked with once the session is complete. Facilitation Techniques for Business Analysis focuses on teaching the facilitation skills necessary to elicit and analyse requirements on a project.

In this highly interactive course, delegates will learn how to effectively help stakeholders define their needs and form these into quantifiable requirements through facilitation. As a facilitator, this involves learning how to prepare for and conduct both face-to-face and remote group sessions, being exposed not only to several facilitation techniques, but also effective facilitation practices and how to manage conflict in a session. Most importantly, it provides the opportunity to practice these skills in a safe environment with a trained facilitator who will guide participants through various activities.

Attendees will leave the class with the confidence to prepare for a session, including creating a facilitation plan, motivating a group’s participation, building consensus, managing conflict, maintaining session focus and evaluating results for lessons learned.

Eliciting & Managing Requirements

  • 31 - 02 April 2020 Dubai
  • 13 - 15 October 2020 Dubai

Overview

Eliciting & Managing Requirements is designed for individuals responsible for doing just that - eliciting requirements from users and stakeholders and managing those requirements throughout solution development.

The course looks at the processes around solution scope validation, collaborative elicitation, modelling the solution, documenting effective requirements, solution validation, requirements change management and how to plan the work necessary to successfully drive the whole process.

After the scope of a solution to a business problem has been proposed and accepted, the work (typically project-based) of designing and developing that solution must commence. This course explores how the discipline of business analysis contributes to the work of a project, ensuring that the requirements of the solution being developed are fully elicited from, communicated to, and understood by all stakeholders involved. Additionally, the course discusses how business analysis in the context of a project ensures that the solution developed fulfills the intended scope as well as covers considerations for managing requirements (and changes to those requirements) throughout their effective lifecycle.
