Our Business Analysis course is the most successful starting point for hundreds of Business Analysts each year. Business analysis is a specialist discipline that enables organisations to make favourable investment decisions concerning potential business changes. Organisations are constantly striving to become more efficient and effective, and business analysts support these efforts by clarifying the viable options open to the organisation, evaluating these options and ensuring that the selected solution is defined clearly.

There are five key elements to business analysis:

  • Investigating business situations – applying a range of techniques to uncover the root causes of problems and identify key issues.
  • Analysing business needs – understanding the business stakeholders and their views, building a common vision of the desired business system and identifying the required actions for change.
  • Evaluating options – identifying the options for business change and working with other professionals to define the financial and business impacts for each option.
  • Defining requirements – modelling and documenting the business and system requirements.
  • Managing benefits – supporting the project sponsor and project manager in ensuring that any changes to the requirements are reflected in the business case.

Effective business analysis requires both professional skills of investigation, analysis and modelling, and interpersonal skills for working with a range of people. This course will take you through a proven, structured process to improve your ability to collect, analyse and forecast business and financial data in order to generate valuable insights from business data. This course will also teach you how to report on business data and present information and analysis to clients and stakeholders. It is aimed particularly, but not exclusively, at financial and business analysts, managers, planners, customer-service staff, operations staff and information-management personnel.

Our online programme is so well designed you feel as if you are in the classroom. The course is comprised of professionally narrated e-Learning modules, interactive quizzes, tests and exams. All delivered through a system that you will have access to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days (12 months).

    Good intro for beginners

    This is a good introduction to business analysis but is geared toward beginners and not those who have had quite a bit of experience in the industry.

    I found business analysis course informative

    I found business analysis course informative, well structured, and easy to follow. After a number of years away from programming it allowed me to start thinking in a more analytical way towards my current projects.

    Great Business Analysis Essential training

    Very good Business Analysis starter training, covering all the basics by an experience business analyst, who you could spend hours listening to!. And provision of a Module book with more in depth info.
    What would have made this a 5 stars is if the videos would cover more of the content of the exam, as oppose of having to read the 95 pages module book.
