Business Systems Analysis Training Overview


Defining Business and User Requirements

Inteq2_Biz Sys Analysis 01 BSA-1Inteq’s Business Systems Analysis training course provides the critical thinking skills, conceptual knowledge and best practice techniques to rapidly discover, thoroughly analyze and accurately specify business and user requirements.

Inteq's Business Systems Analysis is about business requirements - from a business perspective  - - and is seamlessly integrated and cohesively organized around Inteq’s model-driven analysis framework for delivering agility, precision and consistency in business and systems analysis.

Until now, text-oriented analysis (bullet lists, indented outlines, etc.) prevailed as the primary technique to identify, analyze and specify business system requirements. Text-oriented analysis, however, is resource intensive. It often lacks standardization, depth and precision. Some organizations have attempted to adapt technical design methods (class diagrams, object interaction diagrams, etc.) to business systems analysis. Technical design methods intimidate and alienate the business community. As a result, stakeholders disconnect from the analysis process.

These approaches fail to deliver. In today’s fast-moving, highly competitive, complex business environment organizations can no longer afford the costly mistakes, operational inefficiencies and lost opportunities that result from superficial analysis and ambiguous requirements.

Inteq’s model-driven business analysis approach and best practice methods utilize a cohesive set of intuitive business-oriented visual diagrams (e.g., process maps, activity diagrams, etc.) to rapidly identify, critically analyze and clearly specify forward-facing business and business system requirements.

The result: breakthrough speed, accuracy and depth of business systems analysis.

Inteq’s Business Systems Analysis training transforms business analysts and business systems analysts into high-impact professionals; professionals that connect with business users and stakeholders, uncover and rapidly assimilate deep business knowledge, and critically analyze and transform that knowledge into thorough, precise unambiguous business and user requirements.
