Seminar Content & Approach
This course is for individuals who create or manage Requirements on a project. Following the IIBA model, we teach the fundamentals of 1) Working with stakeholders to elicit, analyze, and prioritize their requirements, 2) Writing functional and non-functional requirements that are clear, concise, consistent, correct, and complete, and 3) Managing requirements to ensure that they are
current, accessible, testable, and easy to work with. We also take a step back, and demonstrate how to organize all these activities into a coherent BA Plan.
Like all Outset Group seminars, there is an emphasis on hands on learning. We use role play, scripted dialogue, games, and team exercise to help students get the most useful and memorable training possible.
As we teach the methods and tools that produce effective requirements, we also teach the interpersonal skills a BA uses to execute those methods and tools. Throughout the seminar we teach listening, assertiveness, group facilitation, team leadership, and meeting management, and help students adopt new skills in these areas.
