NOTE: This is a two-day class.
This course builds on the concepts explored in Business Analysis. A basic understanding of business analysis is required for this course.
Government agencies are unique, and need special approaches to gather requirements. In this workshop using government case studies you will learn to cut scope-creep by up to 50% and discover how to document business requirements clearly and accurately. This course provides an engineering approach to requirements development and management, presenting more than fifty best practices, which encompass all of the activities and deliverables associated with defining comprehensive, solution-based, requirements.
- The requirements process
- Problem analysis and description
- Types of requirements
- Requirements validation and documentation
- The language used to express requirements
- High level process maps
- Use cases workflow and design criteria
Learners evaluate the value of establishing a shared understanding of 'the product' with the project stakeholders, and gain experience building a vision, glossary, and risk mitigation plan to streamline requirement elicitation. Exercises include the use of effective techniques for eliciting software requirements, analyzing requirements, setting priorities, and establishing representative models for key system components. Practice with the authoring of representative use cases will also be provided.
During this course, workshops will include a representative project that will be developed from inception, through requirements gathering, and subsequent analysis in order to integrate individual concepts. A mock JAD (Joint Application Design/Development) session will be conducted as part of this course.
