Course Overview


Requirements Engineering is an essential business analysis skill. Being able to pinpoint your consumers’ expectations for a newly introduced or modified existing product is key to the success of the completed solution.

Based around a Requirements Engineering framework, this course will teach you a range of techniques for elicitation, analysis, documentation and managing requirements. All with the help of a detailed case study that allows you to practice applying the techniques you learn. Some of the key areas we’ll look at include requirements categorisation, prioritisation and documentation, traceability and management of changes to requirements, and use case modelling and stories.

Presented to you by one of the expert training consultants pictured below, each member of our Requirements Engineering training team bring their substantial experience of business analysis projects and application of the Requirements Engineering techniques to the programme.
