Business Analysis for the Project Manager

14 PDUs / Contact Hours: 9 Technical | 0 Leadership | 5 Strategy

A business analysis course for project managers? Absolutely! While Business Analyst positions are still rather new to many organizations, their primary role of defining and documenting user requirements and bridging the gap between the client and the solution team has always been an essential ingredient for achieving project success. On small to medium-sized projects, the role of business analysis often falls on the shoulders of the project manager or other core team members. On larger projects, the role of business analysis is usually more defined and it is important that both project managers and business analysts understand the value that each of their roles will bring to the project.

Taught through a series of discussions, examples, and real world hands-on exercises drawn from IT projects, this two-day course will teach participants the tools they can apply immediately to accurately translate client requirements into successful project deliverables.
