Corporate Business Analysis Training

In a perfect world, every transformation (Digital or Business) project would be “on time and within budget.” But reality (especially the proven statistics) tells a very different story. It’s not uncommon for transformation projects to fail. Even if the budget and schedule are met, one must ask “did the project deliver the results and quality we expected?

There are many reasons why projects (both simple and complex) fail; some of the most common reasons for failure are:

  • Unclear/Inadequate requirements
  • Undefined scope, objectives and goals
  • Lack of skilled personnel
  • Stakeholder conflict
  • Poor Communication

When companies embark on a transformation journey, one of the first action they take is to engage a third party vendor to help them. Whilst they will require the service of a third party vendor at some point, they can reduce the costs by doing some of the ground work in-house.

The benefits of doing some of the ground work in-house are:

  • Reduce External consultants fees
  • Manage the risk of knowledge leakage
  • Reduce product risks by using methods, tools, techniques and checklists selected specifically for the initiative that is being undertaken
  • Empower your employees by upskilling them and letting them take ownership of some of the work.

SlingStone Business Consulting’s comprehensive business analysis training course explicitly defines the role and capabilities of a business analyst. Our modules cover the steps required to complete the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) process, understanding project methodologies and how to determine which method to apply on any given project.

A business analyst bridges the gap between the business and the Technology (IT) team to elicit, analyse, communicate and validate requirements for changes to business processes, efficiency improvement, policies and information systems. The business analyst understands business problems and opportunities in the context of the requirements and recommends solutions that enable the organization to achieve its strategic goals.
