Business analysis is a critical element for obtaining success in project management. While project managers understand the importance of delivering projects on time and within scope and budget, many are still unaware of how to leverage business analysis as the vehicle to achieve this success.

PMI research continues to show that a majority of project failures are attributed to problems associated to inaccurate or missing requirements. In fact, PMI’s Pulse of the Profession ® study (Requirements Management A Core Competency for Project and Program Success) uncovered that inaccurate requirements management is the leading cause for 47% of these project failures. Yes – nearly ½ of the projects that fail are failing as a result of problems associated with poor requirements practices!  

Do not allow your projects to be reflected in this statistic anymore!! Take action to learn about the Fundamentals of Business Analysis on February 9th, 2019.

Whether you are a project, program, or portfolio manager with an interest in learning about business analysis or a practitioner currently tasked with obtaining requirements but unsure about the depth of your role, this one day course will provide you the solid exploration of the fundamentals of business analysis. This course fully empowers the professional in the application and success of utilizing effective Business Analysis Methods, Techniques, and Standards.
