After completing this course, you will be able to
  • analyze business activities to identify business procedures, processes and functions
  • apply activity decomposition techniques to
    structure functions, aggregate processes and elementary processes hierarchically
  • describe business activities in terms of the sequencing of work,
    the interaction during performance of the work and the data that is involved.
  • use data/process interaction analysis to enhance and validate information models
  • perform entity-relationship (ERD) data modeling techniques
  • identify equivalencies across process modeling, data modeling and object modeling paradigms
  • select, plan and utilize appropriate elicitation techniques including facilitating workshops.
Who should attend?

The course is intended for those wanting a quick start as Business Analysts or needing a comprehensive understanding of the role and aspect of the BA function
