Many of us work on projects as team members, managers, users, support groups or project managers. Most of these projects are cross-functional and/or cross-business, in that they span multiple departments, groups and borders within an organization. We also find that many times questions are asked about the project’s origin, mission and business objectives and in fact, “Should there even have been a project?”
This program is for anyone who participates in or leads teams involved in developing and writing business requirements. Participants learn how to create Business Case and Business Requirements documents. These deliverables identify what the project will do (and for whom) and what it will not do (also known as in-scope and out-of-scope.) This information is also needed by the Business Sponsors to decide whether or not the project should proceed to the next step, frequently known as the Functional Specifications.
The workshop is endorsed by PMI® (Project Management Institute) to help participants become better Business Analysts and if they want, prepare for the PMI-PBA, Professional in Business Analysis credential. Upon completion, attendees involved with PMI’s Project Management Professional – PMP and/or PBA programs, are awarded 16 PDUs or “Contact hours”. Our Global REP code is 1270.
