LCG-BA-01 Writing a business case

The Business Case is the key to selling a product, an idea or a solution. Knowing how to sell your idea is an art, but it is also a technique. It is essential to know how to put together a coherent list of strategic and economic arguments in favor of a solution in order to ensure good communication and the success of what one wants to undertake.
From the definition of need to the creation of a high-level implementation plan, this workshop is for anyone who has to make recommendations for initiatives.
Using business analysis and financial analysis techniques, this workshop puts into practice techniques that validate the quality and relevance of the elements of a decision file and also ensure that defined objectives are transformed into true value for the company.

LCG-BA-02 Elicitatation and Requirements Management

The requirements collection is all the activities needed to gather, document, verify and validate the requirements. We will see the techniques used to gather information with stakeholders and also see how to maintain traceability and manage changes to requirements.
As advisors and facilitators, business analysts must bridge the gap between people with business needs and knowledge and people who will provide solutions. They are regularly involved in communications between the various stakeholders of the project. They facilitate information in gathering sessions, perform interviews, define needs, and design the solution. We will see the techniques associated with the facilitation of different workshops
The business analyst is also involved in negotiating the solution with stakeholders, sometimes dealing with management and developers, and acting as a mediator between groups to reach consensus. He must also influence the outcome of decisions during the solution cycle in order to arrive at the best solution for all.

LCG-BA-04 Writing Requirements and Business Rules

At the base of project deliverables, requirements are established by reaching consensus among stakeholders. In order to ensure delivery of the project with the required functionality, the capabilities, characteristics or attributes of the project deliverables must be specified. They must be prioritized and ensure that all requirements are produced in a consistent manner. In addition, the requirements are accompanied by sometimes complex business rules that must be operationalized in the solution.
This training provides an opportunity for participants to practice effective and clear requirements writing techniques and business rules. Participants will be able to experiment with developing high level requirements as seen in the Business Case or for a Project Charter. They will also be able to draft functional and non-functional solution requirements as they are to be written to ensure that all stakeholders are able to approve them and verify their presence in the solution.
One of the biggest challenges in projects is documenting the business rules. The complexity of this aspect of defining needs is often underestimated. Yet there are effective ways to document business rules making them easy to approve and easy validate in the solution. This training allows participants to practice these techniques.
