This course starts with the perfect introduction for anyone looking to hone their team’s skills and knowledge around eliciting requirements. This course also helps experienced business analysis teams level-set across an organization on requirements terminology and concepts. This course emphasizes the importance in understanding business objectives to manage scope, including extensive practice with these skills. This course will teach the students to recognize different types of requirements and get an introduction to techniques for elicitation, scope management, models and requirements review.
