PM4007 A Universal Approach to Systems Analysis
Duration3 Days
Delivery MethodInstructor Led, Hands-on Workshops
Public Price$1650.00

DESCRIPTION (Return to Top)

A three-day workshop for information systems personnel. Experienced and novice IS professionals will benefit from this very understandable foundation workshop. The workshop deals with structured analysis techniques that are the basis for all the current methods and tools. This workshop will complement and support product and tool specific training and can be used with all known methodologies. The workshop itself is methodology neutral.

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to analyze a new or existing system project and develop a requirements specification. The latest analysis techniques are combined with effective, proven modeling methods. The workshop focuses on developing complete and accurate requirements in the shortest possible time. The material is based on practical and effective methods that have evolved from many years of experiences with software projects.

The workshop is heavily “hands on” (about 65%). There are no automated tools, all work is simulation of real situations and done in teams relying heavily on group interaction.

AUDIENCE (Return to Top)

This seminar is extremely helpful for Systems Project Leaders, Systems Analysts and Designers, Software Engineers, Data Administrators and Systems Users who are involved in developing requirements specifications.

OBJECTIVES (Return to Top)

 Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Identify scope boundaries and develop a high level view of a project
