Course Description:

This is the first module of the Diploma in Business Analysis (BA) but can also be done as a course on its own without having to do the complete Diploma. To effectively analyse any area of the business, the analyst needs to understand the difference between what is required – “analysis” and how it will be implemented – “design”. This course focuses on ensuring that a business analyst understands how much information to gather and he/she can apply the most appropriate modelling technique in order to define accurate, complete, concise and complete business requirements that are to be used as a basis for developing business solutions.
