This course takes you through an end-to-end holistic business analysis process. This holistic approach involves considering four aspects of a business system: the processes, the people, the organisational context, and the technology. Starting with the rationale for a holistic approach, the course provides you with a clear understanding of the strategic context, coupled with the project discipline needed for business analysis. You will learn how to understand the business situation and issues associated with it, analyse stakeholder perspectives, model business activities, identify potential solutions to business issues, and finally make the business case for potential solutions. Without this end-to-end process, much of the cost of a project is often attributable to re-work from poor up-front analysis. This course prepares you to take the BCS Business Analysis Practice Practitioner Exam on day 3 of the course.
