With information from elicitation in hand, business analysts must compile their findings into useful forms and leverage it to meet objectives. In this course, learn how to develop and model requirements, document solutions, and address business needs.
No matter how well information is elicited or how beneficial a solution may be, business analysis cannot succeed if requirements aren't effectively written, structured, or understood. In Conducting Business Analysis & Developing Requirements, you'll gain the ability to transform information gleaned from conversations and analysis into a plan for success. You'll learn about a variety of useful techniques for modeling scope, processes, rules, data, and interfaces. Then, you'll learn how to effectively write, document, structure, and prioritize requirements. Finally, you'll learn how to take your solutions documentation through validation and approval, so that project work can begin. When you're finished with this course, you'll know how to use models to better understand and communicate challenges and use simple rules and structures to convert those findings into a clear path forward.
