Bringing Business Solutions to Life


From core fundamentals and technical design to quality assurance and implementation, Bringing Business Solutions to Life helps Business Analysts master all the important processes they are likely to encounter when launching new systems. This two-day workshop begins by reviewing the Business Analysts role throughout the entire lifecycle of a project, and then fills in all the important details. Every key theme along the way is taught using an experiential approach, including how Business Analysts can participate more effectively in the implementation process; how they can ensure that project requirements have been implemented completely; and what tools and techniques are available in the later phases of a project that can help ensure more successful implementations. This content is endorsed by IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis).
