Enterprise Analysis for IT Business Analysts

Beyond traditional requirements gathering
Enterprise Analysis is in Requirements Engineering something which is conducted only recently. Traditionally, Business requirements were just given to the technical personnel. Mostly the requirements contained already a solution or solution sketch. Nobody from the technical department was asked to understand the Business Case or to question whether the suggested solution was the only alternative. This mindset is changing dramatically – modern Business Analysts understand the Business and the real, underlying Business Need before they lock into a solution approach. Furthermore, it is mandatory to understand the gaps and obstacles which might exist in an enterprise and which do not allow to satisfy the Business Need.

Learn how to:

  • Use techniques to determine the real Business Need
  • Identify gaps, shortcomings and obstacles which have to be reduced or removed to satisfy the Business Need
  • Explore an approach to create a feasible, taking into consideration various stakeholder concerns and other constraints
  • Formulate the solution (product) scope
  • Calculate a Business Case
  • the best solution approach or recommend to cancel the initiative
  • Understand the Business Need.
  • How to convince stakeholder, that an agreed upon, well formulated Business is mandatory.
  • Vision & Mission Statement for potential initiatives.
  • Understand the relevant Business processes, understand how the Business works.
  • Determine and document challenges and obstacles.
  • Quantify goals vs. formulate strategic goals.
  • Business Case Format, necessary and optional elements.
  • Enterprise KPIs / expected performance improvements. Elevator Pitch exercise.








During the course there are presentations and exercises to immediately apply the things which have been learnt by going through a realistic case study. Participants are asked to present the results before the group and “sell” their initiatives by showing plausible Business Cases. Furthermore, they have to work on their own.
