Fundamentals of Business Analysis Course – Training in Dubai & Boston


This Business Analysis Fundamentals training course teaches the essential skills that a business analyst needs to know. It covers the BA concepts, tools, techniques and methods applied in Business Analysis to develop the right solutions per the customer’s requirements.

In today’s complex project environment, it has been proven over and over that accurately understanding the client’s requirements can make the difference between success and failure. Clients who feel that you can understand their needs and requirements are more likely to award you the contract or project. Project managers who can solicit the correct requirements and details are more likely to make it to the project’s finish line.

This course can also be a stepping stool to prepare the attendee to sit for Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP®) certification exam offered by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), based out of Toronto, Canada.

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.

As a discipline, Business Analysis 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.
