Resource Person

Instructors are experienced Business Analysts rather than ‘trained trainers’. They can therefore quote reallife examples as well as being able to confidently field delegates’ questions that might relate to projects or scenarios outside the scope of the course.

Who Can Attend

Our Fundamentals of Business Analysis course is suited to Business Analysts recently placed in the role or to Business Analysts who have been performing the role for some time but have never received any formal training.

It is suitable as an introduction for anyone thinking about moving into the Business Analysis role or for other change management professionals wanting to gain a more in-depth understanding of the role and responsibilities of the Business Analyst.

The course is also suitable for experienced business analysts as it:

  • Provides a reinforcement session for those Business Analysts who have been doing the job for many years but have never received formal training
  • Provides a ‘standard’ approach to be adopted by teams who might currently be using a mix of different techniques and deliverables
  • Can be used as a tool for uncovering and addressing issues faced by existing Business Analysts or Business Analyst teams
  • Covers the BCS Requirements Engineering syllabus in full so is the start point for the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis
  • Covers other parts of the remaining 3 BCS modules giving a broad introduction to the qualification but maintaining an emphasis on real-world practice

The course is also suited to individuals embarking on a career in change management, IT or project management, as it provides a useful insight into the project lifecycle and the need for robust requirements and a rigorous and methodical approach.


The course is highly interactive and practical with around 50% of training time devoted to practical exercises.
Delegates are encouraged to learn through group exercises including a detailed case study. The case study is based on a complaint management department within a medium sized bank. It requires no prior banking or business knowledge and only a minimal amount of reading to get started.
Close team work is essential and delegates are encouraged to make short informal presentations at the end of each exercise to build their confidence and develop the skills of peer group review.
There is a strong focus on delivering quality requirements in a highly pragmatic way - it focuses on what will work in the real world rather than academic or exam based theory.

Requirement Engineering with Business Analysis


This 5 day course focuses on learning practical Requirement Engineering Courses with Business analysis skills that can be used in the workplace. Course delegates should be able to return to their working environments and work as an effective Business Analyst, Requirement Engineer & immediately adding value and building effective relationships with project stakeholders.
The course focuses on learning how to do business analysis in the real world, however it also covers the whole of the syllabus for the BCS certificate in Requirements Engineering, meaning delegates have the option of taking this exam at the end of the course.
Our public courses are limited to a maximum of 9 delegates greatly enhancing the learning experience.


5 Days (40 Hours)

Exercise 4.3 – delegates are asked to identify and document a set of high-level functional requirements and non-functional requirements from the case study

Module 5 - Process Modelling
• Examines business process modelling and why and when it should be used
• Introduces the industry standard process modelling technique - BPMN
• Diagram levelling (how much detail to show in a diagram)
• Process modelling as a requirements definition tool
Exercise 5.1 – delegates practise BPMN techniques using a simple scenario
Exercise 5.2 – delegates work in teams to produce an ‘as-is’ swim-lane diagram from the case study

Module 6 - Data Modelling
