Course description

Conducting business process analysis is a best practice to ensure that the solution requirements are business process-based and that the requirements you document meet the business needs. Identifying/documenting the business processes in scope and documenting the as-is business process flow map for each process enables you to use them for pain point/opportunity analysis. This sets a strong foundation for the business process context where the new solution functionality will come into play to support the business. Pain point/opportunity analysis helps to identify where things need to be fixed, which may or may not result in requirements for a new solution. There is great value in simply understanding where things are not working well. Opportunity analysis focuses on improving a process even when it appears that there is nothing wrong — but it could be done better.

The format of the workshop will be interactive and collaborative. It will serve to provide hands-on workshop discussions/exercises to ensure a sound understanding of how to effectively:

  • Identify/document the business process within scope of the project.
  • Build an as-is business process flow map to depict who is responsible for doing what, when, in what sequence, using/producing what information, and employing what technology.
  • Walk through a business process flow map to identify the different types of pain points and where opportunities that would improve the process.
  • Use the process flow map and analysis of pain points/opportunities to identify use cases that are requirements for the new solution.
  • Build a use case inventory that jumpstarts a system context diagram.
