Business Analysis: Introduction to Requirements Analysis
Overview/Description Target Audience Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
When you have a set of dependent tasks to complete, it's not feasible to just randomly pick and choose which tasks to perform and in which order. The same is true for requirements in business analysis. Requirements must be analyzed appropriately to ensure they are prioritized and organized in the most appropriate way to ensure the success of a project or initiative. And mapping out what a process or system will look like with requirements in place provides a detailed view for the team to work towards. This course provides an introduction to requirements analysis as prescribed in A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide) – Version 2.0 by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®). Specifically, this course covers methods for prioritizing requirements such as a MoSCoW analysis, and introduces the use of techniques like data flow diagrams to organize requirements. The course also explains using techniques like non-functional requirements analysis and state diagrams for specifying and modeling requirements. This course provides a foundational knowledge base of business analysis information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the IIBA®’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) certification exam.
