Introduction to Business Analysis

Course Duration

2 days (14 hours)

Course Description/Objectives

Metaphor for ideasThis practical, hands-on course is designed to provide attendees with a foundational knowledge of Business Analysis, and as such no previous specific knowledge of BA practices or techniques is assumed.  A range of hands-on exercises are introduced throughout the course which enable delegates to practice using the techniques that are presented, and time is built in for questions and discussion.

Delegates will leave the course with an enhanced knowledge of a range of analysis techniques, and will be ready to start putting them into practice.  A handy course manual will be provided that will act as a reminder when utilising the techniques in their own work setting.
