The course enables the trainee to perform the activities that an advanced BA is responsible for over the systems development life cycle (SDLC) and to be conversant with all of the methodologies, concepts and terminology expected of the BA, as described in the BABOK. The course provides an in-depth coverage of all of the BABOK 3 Knowledge Areas and provides extensive practical preparation for the CBAP®; it is a practical guide for the BA that puts the BABOK into action, clarifying precisely when and how in the project lifecycle to apply each of the six BABOK knowledge areas, as well as BABOK tools and techniques. When offered as part of a comprehensive BA program, the course is scheduled as a final, capstone course, integrating the program’s techniques in a project simulation.
This course incorporates current best practices in IT Service Management and software development, such as agile, iterative development, ITIL, Six Sigma, and RUP and provides the salient characteristics of these approaches and their relationship to BA practice.
