Business Analyse

Business Process Modelling

Define and analyse requirements – perform the four phases of process improvement.

As a business analyst, your role is key in defining the requirements during planning, and in facilitating solutions to business challenges. The business analyst must be aware that any project may require the redesign and redevelopment of processes and that processes must enhance and meet the organisation business goals. This highly interactive course will provide you with the opportunity to perform the four stages of ‘Process Improvement’, derived from leading models in the industry. Key deliverables and outputs will be emphasised at each phase. Participants will practice creating process maps, benchmarks and measurements and will also conduct a gap and stakeholder analysis.
