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 the business requirements. Participants learn how to create a Business Case and Business Requirements document and to use the CMS, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Project Charter Template. 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 phase. The CMS XLC - eXpedited lifecycle is also addressed.
The workshop is endorsed by PMI®, the Project Management Institute, to help participants develop better Business Requirements and if they want, prepare for the PMI-PBA, Professional in Business Analysis credential. Attendees involved with PMI’s Project Management Professional – PMP and/or PBA programs, are awarded 16 PDUs or Contact Hours. The workshop is also compliant with the IIBA® BABOK® (Business Analysis Body of Knowledge). These credits also are accepted as Continuing Education, CE Hours by HIMSS. Other Healthcare certification agencies should also accept these units.
Instructional methods for this two-day course are lecture, discussion, video, detailed team case study workshops that fit the Healthcare environment, and presentations. Upon request, demonstrations of Microsoft Visio™ can be included as well as specific In-house guidelines for life cycle, approval, funding etc. This program also includes references to the CMS and applicable templates and processes, PMI PMBOK, PMI-PBASM Handbook, IIBA, International Institute of Business Analysis-BABOK, Six Sigma, and Lean.
