Business Analyst

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: CTE Solutions Inc.
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, Winnipeg, Canada
  V

An intensive practical course covering all aspects of the Business Analyst role �from requirements gathering to testing. The emphasis of the course is on learning practical tools and techniques that can immediately be put to use. All major techniques �both Structured and Object-Oriented (OO) �are addressed. Each trainee receives a hard copy of all course material as well as a Job Aids booklet, containing useful templates, examples, guidelines and glossary for use back on the job.

Why:
Most large companies and organizations that rely heavily on software for business operations, employ Business Analysts to communicate business needs to software developers. When analysts do not do their job effectively, the result is incomplete or incorrect requirements - leading causes of spiraling development costs and project delays.

In the Crash Course, you’ll learn how to cut costs and delays by improving communication between business stakeholders and developers through comprehensive requirements analysis and documentation and by guaranteeing results through structured testing and quality assurance.
