Description

Business Analysts are increasingly required to extend themselves beyond their traditional role of developing and maintaining IT systems. They need the capability to understand the business strategy, use proven techniques to analyse the business area, and identify changes to business processes needed to meet internal and external challenges.

This course develops the skills needed to work with senior business and IT staff to analyse and model business activities. Delegates will learn how to investigate business problems, and how to identify and recommend appropriate creative solutions.

After the course delegates may sit an examination to attain the ISEB Business Systems Development Certificate in Business Analysis Essentials. (These delegates should also book on course code BAEEX-2 and pay for their exam separately). This course may be taken as part of the programme leading to the ISEB Diploma in Business Analysis.
