ESI International, the leading provider of business analysis and
project management training, today announced availability of its
Business Analyst Professional Development Programme throughout the
United Kingdom to complement its Project Management Professional
Development Programme. The six-course curriculum offers professionals
the tools and techniques they need to build a better foundation
for projects from the very beginning.
Projects are the lifeblood of any organisation and are executed
based on a set of accurate business requirements. A business analyst
gathers requirements from a business area and presents it in ways
that are understandable — and actionable — by the IT organisation.
ESI’s new business analysis programme focuses on the analysis and
documentation of project requirements. Business analysts, although
not always known by this title, have a distinct role -- to uncover
business, user and functional requirements, and ESI's Business Analyst
Professional Development Programme addresses these unique needs.
This new programme provides training of a proven, structured approach
to better define a project's requirements and control scope to meet
stakeholders' needs and manage these requirements throughout the
life cycle of the project.
Alan Garvey, Managing Director of ESI International, EMEA, said:
"Business analysis is an important first step in any project plan.
All project managers, systems analysts and IT directors, whether
developing software solutions or working on mergers, require a clear
grasp of this important, initial phase of a project. This curriculum
builds on the importance of developing competencies and skills that
are tied to specific job roles.”
"With the availability of this curriculum in the UK, ESI now offers
the knowledge, techniques and best practices needed to successfully
develop and document a requirements plan that will ensure the success
of their projects, regardless of industry or project type. Analysts,
IT managers, project managers and anyone who plays a role in ensuring
project end results will benefit from this new training programme.”
The Business Analyst Training Programme was designed to help business
analysts, or managers performing the functions of a business analyst,
define the requirements and scope of a project to meet customer
needs, document all requirements clearly and ensure requirements
are met throughout the systems development life cycle. These invaluable
skills will help to shorten life cycles thereby lowering project
budgets and decreasing time-to-market.
In addition, ESI has been designated as a Charter Endorsed Education
Provider by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA),
meaning that ESI’s six-course curriculum in the United Kingdom meets
IIBA’s education standards for business analysis professionals.
ESI is among the first organisations worldwide to achieve the designation
under IIBA's Endorsed Education Provider programme for its business
analysis curriculum. To maintain its designation, ESI must follow
strict educational guidelines and is subject to random audits for
quality assurance and compliance.
