Overview and Purpose

As a business analyst, you are the individual who enables change in your organization… whether it be addressing business process improvements or implementing a key technology enterprise-wide. Well-planned business analysis is crucial to the success of these significant initiatives. Perhaps you have been performing business analysis planning and monitoring in an informal, unstructured manner? Would you like to learn how to perform these tasks in a more cohesive manner? This workshop may be the help you need.

This full-day workshop covers the Business Analysis Planning and Monitoring Knowledge Area and associated techniques in BABOK® v3. Content of each task in the knowledge area is described and the practical application of this knowledge area is reviewed. To complement the theory, interactive exercises are provided to help reinforce your learning.

Learning Objectives

  • Examine the tasks that business analysts perform to organize and coordinate their efforts and the efforts of their stakeholders and why they are important
  • Explain the difference between plan-driven and change-driven business analysis planning approaches
  • Identify the benefits of thorough stakeholder analysis
  • Apply planning and monitoring techniques to case studies through interactive hands-on group work
  • Describe the elements of governance and recognize the importance of planning various aspects of governance for business analysis initiatives
  • Recognize the importance of properly managing business analysis information
  • Identify assessment measures and explain how to apply key performance indicators and metrics against your business analysis work
