Developing Effective Requirements Specifications
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
A Universal Approach to Business Analysis

A 3-day workshop for business analysts, information systems personnel and project managers. Experienced and novice IT professionals will benefit from this very understandable foundation workshop. The workshop deals with structured analysis techniques that are the basis for all the current methods and tools. This workshop will complement 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 analyze a new or existing system project and develop an effective requirements specification. The latest analysis techniques are combined with effective, proven modeling methods. The workshop focuses on developing complete and accurate requirements in the shortest possible time. The material is based on practical and effective methods that have evolved from many years of experiences 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.
