Course Description: Business Analysis, Planning & Project Management
Project management is a time tested, proven approach to delivering products and/or services within the constraints of scope, schedule, and cost. In managing projects, the business analyst role has increased in importance and changed over time because of the complexities of integrating new technologies and new
processes in to dynamic and ever-changing business environments. Business analysis complements the project management function and focuses on defining and validating a solution to meet business needs and goals that align with the business strategy. Topics include business analysis planning, needs assessment, project planning and initiation, stakeholder analysis, risk planning, and schedule / resource allocations. Using a practical learning approach, students will create a business case and project charter, as well as supporting artifacts that support these two important project deliverables.
Course content is aligned with the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®) and the Project Management Institute (PMI) Business Analysis for Practitioner: A Practice Guide, the industry standards for the Business Analyst profession.
Individuals hired to teach these courses must understand that all such agreements with the University are made on a course-by-course basis and that the instructor will be made no guarantee of continual involvement with the University in any capacity.
