Training on Gathering and Managing Project Requirements – Courses in Dubai and Boston
This Requirements Management course will teach you how to gather requirements, document and analyze them. It examine how to plan, identify and estimate requirements activities, control requirements scope, identify and manage requirements risk, track metrics for projects and products, and manage requirements change.

In today’s projects, the biggest success factor is how well the project requirements have been collected and validated. Requirements are the basic components that make up the scope of any project. Project managers and business analysts must plan and closely identify and manage requirements for a project in accordance with existing standards in an organization. First, they must identify key roles and stakeholders and decide on a work division strategy. Working with requirements involves identifying the activities to be undertaken in order to identify requirements, identifying the risks associated with various project requirements, and managing project scope as it relates to requirements.
This course is aligned with the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®) published by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA™), and can be used towards the training preparation for the IIBA’s Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP™) certification.

What is Business Analysis?
Business analysis is the discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems. Solutions often include a systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development. The person who carries out this task is called a business analyst or BA.
Those BA’s who work solely on developing software systems may be called IT Business Analysts, Technical Business Analysts, Online Business Analysts or Systems Analysts.
Business analysis, as a discipline, has a heavy overlap with requirements analysis sometimes also called requirements engineering, but focuses on identifying the changes to an organization that are required for it to achieve strategic goals. These changes include changes to strategies, structures, policies, processes, and information systems.
