"I am known as a problem solver now."

BACoE did business analysis on professional BA courses. The results showed that most courses are IT centric and barely address how to analyze the business.

Business Analysis is more than IT Requirements.  Business Analysis determines the best way to use the organization's limited resources (people, process, money, time, technology, facilities, etc.) to meet or exceed the organization's business goals. IT requirements are only a subset of the complete solution.  

BACoE aligns quality management, requirements, process management, six sigma and system development life cycle concepts into a practical set of skills that ANYONE can use.

  • Seminars - 1 hour. Actual industry examples.
  • Workshops - 4 hours.  Pick the topic. Includes actual industry example, techniques and exercise.
  • Training - 3-4 days. In-house.  
  • BA Mentor / Lead Support - Duration varies. BACoE mentors or leads the BA effort for Enterprise, Group-it and Business Requirement services.

Make a difference.  Invest in yourself.

"The IT project was a success, but the customer does not use it. They said we automated a cumbersome process that slowed their ability to meet their business targets.  BACoE's Business Requirements taught me to listen to my stakeholders rather than to jump to automation. Process analysis is the key to great solutions. Together we are now building solutions that work."
What are you trying to achieve? By when? Using which resources? At what cost? And more important, why?

BACoE paints an aligned business, operational, financial and technology framework into one easy to understand Concept of Operations to answer all these questions and more.   Build it once, reuse it for every improvement.

Deming said, "Improve your overall organization by having each person take a step toward quality."
