Overview

Previously know as ISEB Requirements Engineering this 3 day course is a core module for the Business Analysis Diploma

This intensive three-day course develops the skills needed to work with requirements stakeholders to ensure that requirements satisfy various perspectives and that conflicts are negotiated to a position of consensus.

Delegates will learn how to work with stakeholders and other requirements actors to ensure the requirements are complete, unambiguous, realistic and testable.

Target Audience:

This course is for those wishing to acquire the skill set required for establishing system requirements and those wishing to attain the BCS Certificate in Requirements Engineering.

.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe the roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the requirements engineering process
  • Demonstrate the application of a range requirements elicitation techniques
  • Explain the use of requirements elicitation techniques and the relevance of the techniques to given situations
  • Document and prioritise user requirements for an information system
  • Identify problems with requirements and explain how requirements documentation may be improved
  • Create a process/function model of requirements for an information system
  • Interpret a model of the data requirements for an information system
  • Explain the importance of linking project objectives and requirements to the Business Case
  • Describe the principles of Requirements Management and explain the importance of managing requirements
  • Describe the use of CASE tools to support Requirements Engineering
  • Explain the principles of Requirements Validation and define an approach to validating requirements

Pre-Requisites

There are no specific pre-requisites for this course.

It is recommended that those new to Business Analysis consider attending the Business Analysis Foundation course.

Delegates will need to spend 60-90 minutes each evening on revision and example examination questions.

The BCS Certificate in Requirements Engineering exam is taken on the final afternoon.

The format is a one hour, written, open book exam with 15 minutes reading time.

The Certificate is a core module for the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.

  • You must bring photographic identification with you (passport, driving license or student card), as it is a BCS requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification will result in a candidate not being able to sit the exam.

  • The BCS allows additional time for candidates who have a disability or whose business language is not English. Candidates can request this additional time in line with the BCS reasonable adjustments policy.
