Business Analysis for Project Managers (3 days) KN3_656Detailed information for course:Business Analysis for Project Managers 

Description:
Many different roles are required within a Project Team: two of the most important roles are the Project Manager and the Business Analyst. A Business Analyst understands business change needs, assesses the impact of those changes, captures, analyses and documents requirements and then supports the communication and delivery of those requirements with relevant parties. Like Project Managers, Business Analysts must be great communicators, tactful diplomats, problem solvers, thinkers and analysers - with the ability to understand and respond to user needs in rapidly changing business environments. Whilst a lot of Project Managers have been on formal training courses such as PRINCE2, APM and PMI, not many have had formal business analysis training which would help them and their organisations deliver more successful projects. This course bridges the gap between Project Management and Business Analysis. It will extend the Project Manager's viewpoint to understand and facilitate excellent analysis and high quality requirements to deliver a fully formed solution, as well as delivering the project... more hereDetailed information for course: Business Analysis for Project Managers

Business Architecture for Enterprise Architects (3 days) KN3_657Detailed information for course:Business Architecture for Enterprise Architects 

Description:
Today's businesses face a turbulent environment in which constant economic, regulatory and technological disruption has become the norm. Businesses need flexible, adaptable systems which can also deliver satisfactorily on 'Business as Usual' (BaU). The discipline of Enterprise Architecture (EA) has become an important tool in the enterprise's efforts to undertake major transformational changes that are aimed at achieving strategic goals. EA holds out the possibility of aligning Business and IT long-term goals, so that IT is responsive to business change and the business derives real value from its current and future investments in IT. Most EA frameworks recognise 3 basic architectures that together constitute EA. They go by different names in different frameworks, but generically the 3 are:

  • Business Architecture
  • Information Systems Architecture
  • Information Technology Architecture
Business Architecture is about designing the components of the business itself, such that fit-for-purpose business systems are created and sustained, in line with the organisation's mission and strategic goals. These components include business services and business processes, as well as organisation structure units and infrastructure facilities, such as locations. Given the importance of this work, some authorities, especially in recent times, suggest that Business Architecture should not be seen as part of EA at all, but as part of a more general concern for architectural work that is holistic enough to embrace the entire fabric of the enterprise, including 'soft' issues, such as style and culture. We respect this point of view, but consider the scope of this to be far too wide for our purpose, covering areas well outside the traditional role of the IS/IT function. Hence our focus in this course is on the role of BA within EA. Business Architecture within EA is derived by considering the required Business and Operating Models, as communicated by the leadership of the organisation. It must also pay attention to the various governance requirements demanded by legislation and regulatory authorities. The definition of a Business Architecture, which should be seen as a joint Business/IT initiative, starts with consideration of the strategic intent of the enterprise and continues until all the relevant business components are defined that support those goals. With such a definition in place, we can proceed to design the Information System services required to support the business, and identify the required application and data components that will deliver those services. Using this IS blueprint, we can design the required components of Information Technology. Once all 3 architectures have been specified in this way, we will have the model of an EA, which connects strategic goals to the use of Information Technology. Typically the required EA is planned for deployment as a strategic roadmap, showing the incremental delivery of enhanced business, IS and IT capabilities in a coordinated way. The course that we offer takes the delegate through the process of deriving a Business Architecture, explaining the components required, and suggesting techniques, models and tools that assist with the process. We also show how eventually these components can be connected to suitable IS and IT services. The approach taken is loosely aligned to the TOGAF and Archimate standards, but this is not intended to be a formal course on either framework. No knowledge of these frameworks is required, although it would be desirable. The course would benefit delegates already qualified in TOGAF and/or Archimate, or in some other EA framework, for example Zachman. The course would benefit Enterprise Architects, Business Architects and also Business Analysts and Senior Business Analysts looking to move up into an architectural role. The course would suit the awareness needs of roles such as Programme Manager .. more hereDetailed information for course: Business Architecture for Enterprise Architects

Practical Business Analysis EnhancedSoft Skills (4 days) KN3_1166Detailed information for course:Practical Business Analysis EnhancedSoft Skills 

Description:
If you'd like to improve the performance of real-world business analysis in your organisation, then we've developed the perfect solution. Our Practical Business Analysis course is the QA-authored approach to empowering teams of Business Analysts, based on the experience of over 20 years of working with world-class organisations to develop their Business Analyst communities and the latest in best practice techniques. Writing high-quality, robust requirements is the aim of the Business Analyst; we show you how to work within a business strategy, use proven techniques to analyse the business area and identify changes to business processes as well as IT systems needed to meet specific internal and external challenges. We offer the opportunity to develop the skills needed to work with senior business and IT staff to analyse and model business activities and write the requirements. Delegates will learn how to investigate business problems and how to identify and recommend appropriate creative solutions. Learning is embedded through a combination of lectures, workshops and practical application: delegates will work on a simulated project during the course, deploying the skills that they have learned in the classroom. They will interact with project stakeholders to capture and negotiate requirements and will work in teams to solve the business problems presented and produce the required analysis artefacts. At the end of the course the teams will formally present their recommendations to the project sponsor. In this way, the learning is given context and relevance and delegates are able to explore real-world application of the tools and techniques covered. Where the course has not included soft-skills modules, the project work will still include interaction with stakeholders but will not focus on the inter-personal dimension. Practical Business Analysis is available in four configurations: 3-day - Standard (QAPBA3)

  • The essential toolkit - working on projects (Waterfall and Agile); documenting and improving business processes; requirements engineering
4-day - Enhanced: Data (QAPBA4D)
