Product Description

The IIBA®-endorsed 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 Noble 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.

Audience:              

  • BAs at any level who satisfy the prerequisites
  • Senior BAs and their managers

Prerequisites:

This course may be taken alone as a standalone course, where trainees have acquired some prior experience as BAs.  The program is delivered over 4 days, when trainees have some prior background and over 5 days if they are new to the role. (Trainees taking this course in the context of the complete program are advised to take it at the end, as a capstone course that ties together all of the techniques learned throughout the program.)
