This course will provide a solid foundation for a career in business development and analysis. We explore the strategy, phases, components and process a BA uses to develop a project. From conducting an enterprise analysis to assessing the solution’s implementation, you will learn the basics of how to manage the process and determine the appropriate parties to be involved. The BA is responsible for requirement gathering, analyzing the needs of the project, documenting the criteria to be met, sharing information among project team members and presenting findings to company executives. You as a Business Developer/Analyst will be a bridging gap between the development team and Client.
