Course Level

Intermediate to Advanced
Course Overview
This course provides participants with the opportunity to perform the four phases of a process improvement project—Define, Analyze, Implement and Control—which have been derived from the phases of the industry’s leading process improvement models. The key deliverables and outputs for the business analyst are emphasized during each phase, as well as the importance of tying all outputs back to the business strategy. Participants practice identifying and prioritizing the processes that require improvement, as well as creating the documents needed to communicate these changes to the rest of the organization. Participants focus on the competencies necessary to perform workflow modeling and create AS-IS and TO-BE process maps. Finally, participants learn how to conduct a gap analysis, create new process benchmarks, and develop measurements for tracking the effectiveness of the new processes. Participants leave this course with the preparation necessary to perform BA responsibilities within the process improvement process and to employ the required skills in accordance with sensitive cost, organizational and stakeholder requirements. This engagement is replete with “Real to life” case studies and exercises to put the knowledge to the test in a group work environment. The training is conducted in a casual and humorous environment and delivery style to ensure retention and dispel any kind of topical stress.
