Course Overview:

Recognizing the impact the requirements process can have on package and custom software implementation success, TechFrederick has identified objectives to enhance the skill sets for business analysts (BAs) in the areas of creating and managing software requirements, visualization/modeling techniques, and requirements elicitation and facilitation. This training  will specialize in requirements best practices that BAs can quickly incorporate in their day-to-day efforts.

Each attendee will receive a copy of Visual Models for Software Requirements, the focus of the 3 day training.

Course Outline:

The 3 day training will consist of three distinct areas of Business Analyst/Solutions Architect focus:

1) Requirements Core Concepts
Requirements Core Concepts (RCC) course is an overview of all the requirements-related skills that a BA needs. This course will teach the students to recognize different types of requirements as well as give them an introduction to techniques for requirements elicitation, scope management, models, and requirements review. Students will also learn basic skills for writing detailed use cases and requirements.

2) Requirements Visualization
Requirements models help BAs organize large amounts of complex information to identify missing and unnecessary requirements. They are foundational to Seilevel’s approach and so they are covered in all three days. However, the Requirements Visualization Day 2 will explore the advanced application of requirements models. Attendees will be given an overview of how requirements models are helpful on projects and cover 15 different requirements models in detail. We also discuss how to select models for projects and how models can be used together to get complete requirements.

3) Requirements Elicitation and Facilitation
Seilevel’s Requirements Elicitation and Facilitation course covers a variety of approaches for eliciting requirements. Attendees will spend significant time on the soft skills necessary to facilitate elicitation sessions with stakeholders, including preparing for sessions, managing the room, keeping stakeholders engaged, and listening well. Participants will learn to use models to elicit requirements.

This course is intended for:

  • Business analysts/Solutions architects
  • Software developers
  • Members of a project team who help define software requirements for a project
  • Members of a project team who must organize and communicate large quantities of information, identify missing requirements, represent different views of requirement details and/or make decisions on cutting unnecessary scope early in the project
  • Product owners or product managers
