This course has been independently developed but follows the BCS Requirements Engineering syllabus. Course fees do not include the BCS examination. This course is concerned with one of the major areas of business analysis work which is producing a well-organised and clearly-defined set of requirements. The course is structured around a five part framework for Requirements Engineering which is applied to a project initiated by an approved business case. The five elements of the framework are Requirements Elicitation, Requirements Analysis, Requirements Validation, Requirements Documentation and Requirements Management.
At the end of the course, delegates should be able to:
- Explain the importance of linking requirements to the business case.
- Describe the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the requirements engineering process.
- Explain the use of a range of requirements elicitation techniques and the relevance of the techniques to business situations.
- Analyse, prioritise and organise elicited requirements.
- Document requirements.
- Identify problems with requirements and explain how requirements documentation may be improved.
- Create a model of the features required from a system.
- Interpret a model of the data requirements for an information system.
- Describe the principles of requirements management and explain the importance of managing requirements.
- Describe the use of tools to support requirements engineering.
- Explain the process and stakeholders involved in requirements validation.
