High Praise from Our Students
One of the best, if not the best Udemy course I have taken. A very professional and detailed course with links to excellent additional resources. Very well done!
Although I wouldn't consider myself a dedicated Business Analyst or even particularly advanced in my experience, the course was still well suited for my understanding. K.
This particular class is already delivering first-rate value as relevant to Business Analysts at my level. With its basis in the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) and the associated Bus. Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABoK), it ties in very neatly with the Project Mgmt. Institute (PMI) program which I’ve been involved with.
Very informative, with loads of exercises to help in understanding. Excellent delivery and good emphasis on Given, When, Then (Gherkin). In fact it's so good and packed with examples that I need to re-visit again.
I cannot say enough good things about this course - it opened my eyes to many ideas, methodologies and frameworks and has given me a lot of ideas that I can begin to implement right away.
The virtual training sessions I attended far exceeded my expectations and were more useful than many of the onsite trainings I have attended throughout my career.
The instructor is amazing. The class is very informative. I will be taking more classes from this instructor.

BA’s Need a Large Set of Skills
Today’s Business Analysts, or anyone tasked with defining business requirements for IT, must wear many hats. They need skills to communicate, mediate, facilitate, investigate, and analyze the needs of their organization.
Types of IT Requirements
Anyone defining requirements for an IT solution needs a bag of techniques to discover and analyze the requirements a solution developer needs. Business and stakeholder requirements, user stories, use cases, process diagrams, or data models are all formats for expressing effective requirements.
