About the course

Business analysts and project managers cannot achieve project objectives without first conducting effective requirements gathering and analysis. This critical first step can determine whether a project will be successful or encounter problems throughout the project life cycle. You will learn how to identify, document, analyze, and track requirements and discuss validation and verification steps. You will create your own best practices templates and documents after gaining the skills to develop tools and techniques to use throughout the requirements process.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the responsibilities of the business analyst and the major deliverables in the business systems requirements analysis process
  • Prepare an elicitation plan tailored to the project environment and the development life cycle
  • Analyze requirements using key modeling techniques
  • Recognize and compose clear requirements statements
  • Create a high-level model of project scope using a use case diagram
  • Create models of stakeholder requirements using use cases and user stories
  • Derive and write solution requirements from use cases
  • Examine the value of both documenting requirements to aid project stakeholders in structuring requirements for use and validating requirements to determine when a project can proceed to design
