General Information

Length and Learning Modes: 2 days

It is now well recognized that requirements are critical to the success of any major project. According to SEI’s Square Project, the total percentage of project budget due to requirements defects is 25 to 40 percent and costs the economy $59.5 billion annually! As a result, a planned business analysis and requirements approach is essential to a successful and smooth-running project. Just like the project itself needs a project plan, the business analysis and requirements processes need a plan.

This course conforms to and aligns with the BABOK® Guide version 3.0 of the IIBA® (International Institute of Business Analysis).
