Students will be provided a deep exploration of how to perform pre-project activities necessary to develop a well-structured business case. The course begins by providing students an understanding of the business analyst?s role in pre-project activities. Techniques are provided to support the business analyst in analyzing the current state business environment, identifying the current business problem (or opportunity) and creating a ?situation statement? to communicate to decision makers why a change is required in the business. Students then explore how to go about determining a desired future state and identifying the needed changes and capabilities that will support the enterprise in achieving the business need. A thorough exploration of the business case is presented, including feasibility analysis and the various areas of a solution option the business analyst must explore in order to build a convincing business case. Students learn the components of a well-structured business case and walk away understanding how to logically present a business case and obtain buy-in. Techniques are also discussed to help prepare a business analyst for the challenges that often are presented when delivering business cases to management.
