Previously know as ISEB Requirements Engineering, our 3 day BCS Certificate In Requirements Engineering course is a core module for the Business Analysis Diploma.
The BCS Certification course is intended on implementing a systematic frame work for Requirements Engineering which is supported to a project introduced by an official business situation. The outline for our 3 day course comprises of Requirements Elicitation, Requirements Analysis and Requirements Validation to deliver good value, Requirements Documentation recommended by Requirements Management.
The Requirements Engineering Process
Requirements and the Business Context
Eliciting and Documenting Requirements
Interviewing for Requirements
Use of Models in Requirements Engineering
Analysing and Negotiating Requirements
The case study allows you to undertake a simulated requirements engineering assignment to practise the new skills.
Our intensive course develops the skills needed to work with requirements stakeholders to ensure that requirements satisfy various perspectives and that conflicts are negotiated to a position of consensus. You will learn how to work with stakeholders and others to ensure the requirements are complete, unambiguous, realistic and testable.
Our course is structured around a Requirements Engineering framework which utilises a range of techniques for elicitation, analysis, documentation and management of requirements.
Anyone requiring an understanding of requirements engineering, including business analysts, business managers and their staff, business change managers and project managers.
Full course materials and a detailed case study will be provided.
There are no specific pre-requisites for this course.
