Overview

For business analysts looking to improve the way they elicit, analyse, document and communicate requirements, there is no better training workshop. Using the proven case study model, participants explore two approaches to requirements modelling: the Unified Modelling Language (UML) and Information Engineering.

Participants discover how modelling 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 prioritisation are covered in depth.

Designed to be prescriptive as well as descriptive, facilitators emphasise best practices through explanation and application. In short, participants discover what should be done, as well as how to do it and why.
