Course Outline
This course gives you the skills you need to develop accurate, complete models that describe business systems requirements. You will examine basic process and data modeling concepts in detail with extensive examples to demonstrate their practical application. An essential part of developing requirements models is validating the correctness and completeness of the requirements; you'll look at how to do this through integrating the process and data models you create. This course emphasizes practical tips and techniques that speed up and enhance the effectiveness of business analysis. Progressive workshop exercises and a comprehensive, integrated case study provide you with hands-on experience as you build and test a complete business model.
