BCS Business Analysis Foundation - Weekend

This course covers the range of concepts, approaches, and techniques that are applicable to Business Analysis. The syllabus and exam are based on the “Business Analysis” 4th Edition BCS book (provided with this course as pre-reading).

It provides a solid foundation for the other BCS Business Analysis certificates. The 2021 syllabus updates the course to agile and modern approaches – a vast improvement on the previous syllabus.

This course includes the BCS Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis.

This course is currently provided remotely using Zoom and Miro boards. We hope to soon resume physical attendance at our London training venue, although delegates can join those in the classroom by remote attendance if preferred.
