Mastering Requirements Management with Use Cases
(BAUCASE, Live Instructor-Led Training, 3 days)


This SETC Certified Business Analysis course provides business professionals with a good overview of the end to end roles and responsibilities of a business analyst. The course begins with a discussion of the differences between a waterfall methodology and an iterative methodology as it applies to the business analyst role. It is worth noting that the iterative methodology is emphasized and discussed in detail. Having situated business analysis within the larger context of the overarching methodology, a thorough discussion of information gathering techniques, business use case development and the role of the business use case is undertaken. The focus is on the development of high quality business use case documents in support of an organization’s business process development or systems development activities. The course concludes with a brief discussion of the testing discipline and of its relationship to business use cases.
