About the course

Delving straight into system development without applying proper analysis and design is similar to building a house without a blueprint. This would mean having to spend more time and resources on reworks and patches later in the development phase in order to solve problems that could have been avoided if appropriate development techniques had been applied.

The Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) techniques helps to:

  • Speed up software development processes
  • Increase developers’ productivity by promoting software reuse
  • Facilitate effective software integration
  • Reduce software maintenance and enhancement efforts
  • Support continuous integration and delivery

Workshops are specially tailored to take participants through the system development process; from requirements to design workflow. Participants will get hands-on experience on the application of OOAD techniques through the relevant cycles.

This course not only helps system designers and developers to leverage on the benefits of OOAD techniques, thereby reducing maintenance costs and increasing software quality, it also helps project managers / leaders / Scrum masters / team members to better manage software development processes.
