A Universal Approach to Systems Design
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training

This is a 3-day workshop for information systems personnel involved in the design process. Experienced and novice IS professionals will benefit from this very understandable foundation workshop. The workshop deals with structured design techniques that are the basis for all the current methods and tools. This workshop will complement and support product and tool-specific training and can be used with all known methodologies. The workshop itself is methodology neutral.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to create a design specification for a system development project. The workshop offers several design techniques and modeling strategies to handle different design situations and projects. The material is based on practical and effective methods that have evolved from many years of experience with software projects.

The workshop is heavily "hands on" (about 65%). There are no automated tools; all work is simulation of real situations and done in teams relying heavily on group interaction.
