Course Description

This course introduces the International Institute of Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) area requirements analysis and design definition.


Course Details

The requirements analysis and design phase of a project translates the results of requirements gathering sessions into requirements specifications and solutions options. This is accomplished using different tools and techniques to model and describe the requirements that are understandable by all stakeholders of the project.

Students will learn how to use common office software to accomplish some of the key tasks a business analysis is expected to perform during requirements analysis and design.
