And that is because requirements are at the core of every change, every project. They explain exactly what needs to be created, updated, and accounted for in the solution. Achieving the requirements is ultimately what brings value to the stakeholders and the organization.

But in order to achieve the requirements, you must first know how to elicit them.

We’ll start things off by teaching you all about requirements – their levels, their types, and the often confusing terminology utilized to explain them. We’ll move into teaching you how to extract and elicit those details using popular elicitation techniques. These techniques can then be utilized to dig deep into the wants and needs of your users, which helps to ensure a successful end solution.

Regardless of whether your project is large or small, in finance or in manufacturing, creating new systems or providing support to a workforce,…Requirements are always at the center, and that is precisely what you are taught in this course.

Your course enrollment includes:

  • 5 hours of high-quality video lectures that break down all the concepts covered into an easy to understand, step-by-step format.

  • A 30-page Student Workbook that will enhance your learning and give you a reference resource after you’ve completed the course.

  • 9 Business Analysis Templates so you have all the tools you need to immediately apply your new skills on the job.

  • 19 Practice Activities and Quizzes to help you retain your learning and give you an opportunity to put your new knowledge to the test.

In addition to all the tools you’ll need to start successfully eliciting requirements, you’ll also get a foot into the industry by way of an industry expert

I’m not just the instructor who wrote this course, I will also act as both a resource and a mentor to guide you to a long and rewarding career in Business Analysis!
