Description

This course is for business analysts looking to improve the way they elicit, analyze, document and communicate requirements. Using the proven case study model, participants explore two approaches to requirements modeling: the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and Information Engineering. Participants discover how modeling can help them make requirements decisions earlier in the system development life cycle, thus enhancing requirements quality and completeness. Data models, use cases, requirements traceability and prioritization are covered in depth. Designed to be prescriptive as well as descriptive, facilitators emphasize best practices through explanation and application
