Share

Online Webinar  – Recorded April 5th 2015
Activity Type: Education – Online or Digital Media 2 PDU – Free
Provider: RequirementsWizard

In this Introduction to Business Analysis demo session, you will learn the fundamentals of business analysis discipline, role of a business analyst, how our training program is structured and most importantly how Requirements Wizard can help you transform your career into a successful business analyst role.

In today’s competitive environment, business analyst’s role is no longer of simply ‘A bridge between Business and IT’. T

here has been a paradigm shift in the role of business analyst in recent years.

In today’s resource scare environment, customers expect business analyst to have knowledge and skills to conduct enterprise analysis, perform end-to-end business processes re-engineering, identify bottlenecks in their value streams, and most importantly develop solutions that would solve their problems and integrate their vision-strategy-technology towards a common organizational goal.

Requirements elicitation and documenting them is a very small subset of a modern day business analyst’s role.

This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst.

In addition to the business analysis skills, project management skills are equally vital for a business analyst. Since the natural career trajectory of a business analyst curve towards project management discipline, this course has included key topics of project management as well, which in a ‘real-world’ scenario, any experienced business analyst must be familiar with.

Note: This session is designed for any individual with IT/Non-IT background who aspires to make their career in business analysis discipline.

Stakeholder Engagement helps us understand what people involved with a project want, and how to engage them to help achieve project success. For both new and experienced project managers, a big challenge is where to go for guidance on the topic.

The Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group, part of the APM People SIG , has started to collate stakeholder engagement resources on the APM Website.

This webinar provides an overview of the information and tools currently available and how you can help add to and improve this facility.

There are many reasons why projects may struggle to meet their goals but a lack of effective stakeholder engagement is widely acknowledged to be one of the main issues.

The Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group (SEFG), now part of the APM People SIG, was established to encourage practitioners to make stakeholder engagement a higher priority.

The first project for the SEFG was to start collating stakeholder engagement resources.

The aim is to support project professionals by sharing case studies, creating an introduction to the key principles of stakeholder engagement, and pointing to relevant and useful reference materials.

These APM Stakeholder Resources are now available on the APM website and .accessible to anyone!

In this webinar Fran and Ian will introduce the Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group, provide an update on the SEFG’s progress to date and the materials available on the APM site, and plans for improving and building on these resources.

Is Business Analysis the Cornerstone of Successful Projects?

A major source of project failure is incomplete, inaccurate, and misunderstood requirements.

In a nutshell, if you don’t identify the “right” requirements for a project, problems will be magnified at every other step of the process.

The bottom line is that nailing down requirements for your initiatives is a high-stakes activity, even more so during a recession where every penny counts.

Faced with conflicting requests from customers, users, partners, competitors, and regulators; the role of the business analyst to define and prioritize requirements, foresee related impacts, and create actionable plans is critical.

In this Webcast, you’ll find out about the due diligence needed to keep projects on track using the tools of business analysis.

Whether you’re an experienced project manager or are just starting out, this program will help fine tune your understanding the basics of requirements management.

Learn:

  • Leading causes of project failure and what you can do to minimize the risks
  • How business analysis is the key to trimming project costs
  • Ways to turn unrealistic expectations into realistic features
  • Using BABOK to improve your requirements development
  • How business analysis differs from project management
  • And much more.

Collaborative Project Management

Online  Ebook – 40 Pages
Activity Type: Education – Read  Up to 1.5 PDUs – Free
Provider: Brightwork

Project management is a discipline, and as such can be quite difficult without the proper training. Some project managers have had formal training (for example PMI’s PMBOK or PRINCE2) and some lucky project managers instinctively know how to initiate, manage and close projects to success.

Many project managers however, are thrown into the deep end with little or no training.

BrightWork believes they can assist project managers with this step-by-step, how-to guide. Our Collaborative Project Management Guide is simple and easy to follow, and describes the typical stages, steps and sub-steps involved in starting, setting up, managing and closing a typical project.

The EBook:

BrightWork has authored an easy to follow and simple to use eBook for Project Managers who are not yet formally trained in Collaborative Project Management or who may not have the time or budget to get trained.

The eBook describes the typical stages, steps and sub-steps involved in starting, setting up, managing and closing a typical project. The eBook also has a section on Project Management Leadership style.

Note, whilst experienced project managers may find the eBook to be introductory in nature, they may learn something from it and might find it an especially useful starting point for creating internal training for their new project managers.
