Advanced Requirements Modeling and Analysis
Modern solutions are complex systems with many inter-related components. The business analyst’s role is to discover and document the requirements for the components. A change project can only succeed if the requirements can be successfully communicated to and understood by the diverse stakeholder groups who are involved. This three-day course explores the development of requirements along several inter-dependent axes: people, process, data, prototype, narrative, and non-functional. We create multiple models to completely describe the solution from these various perspectives. You will experience the iterative nature in which models are created and maintain the cohesiveness of multiple models. The course takes a simulation approach to help participants understand real-world issues that arise during requirements modeling and analysis. At the completion of the course, students will have completed a multi-model description of the requirements for a complete system.
- Create a model to define the context of a solution, explain the six axes of requirement modeling and create models of processes using advanced BPMN.
- Select a sequence of modeling activities that is matched to the project and stakeholder needs, develop models of stakeholders, including stakeholder Roles and Personas.
- Utilize Planguage to document non-functional requirements.
- Compose models of behavior narratives using Use Cases at various levels, formulate models of data components using Data and State modeling and construct prototypes of solution designs.
- Evaluate the impact of new models on the correctness and consistency of existing models.
