Queaso Systems shares best practices on “Business Analysis” with community.

Posted on December 15th, 2014

Since Queaso Systems embarked on the workshop based course track “Business Analist – ICT Architect” with Syntra West in May 2012 the collaboration only became better. The content of the track was adapted to the wishes and needs of the apprentices that took the course. The format has been fine-tuned and the demand for seats grew over time. We clearly have a winner here!

Ever since we started collaborating with Syntra West to put the Queaso Systems ideas and best practices on the topic of Business Analysis in the market as a workshop based format the adoption only grew. At his moment already five groups adding up to more than 50 individuals took the course. Of them more than 50% made it to the presentation of their personal work/exercise before a jury of experts and received a certificate accordingly. The sixth group of 12 trainees is running through the track as we speak. And the next sessions are scheduled for early next year.

To make this program even stronger and more valuable for the participants several extra initiatives have been taken in the meanwhile.

First of them was the formation of an Alumni group. The basic idea here is to have a platform for students that “graduated” and received their certificate to come together from time to time to discuss the topic of business analysis based on the Queaso Systems methodology approach. Two successful meetings have been organized: one explaining the BABOK and another around Tips & Tricks using Enterprise Architect.

A second add-on we created around this eco system of sharing business analysis knowledge is the one day seminar “Business Analysis methodology & Principles for Executives”. The target group here are executives who should be enablers and advocates of good business analysis practises in their organizations. This one day seminar gives them the necessary information to discover the created value of business analysis and helps them avoid the risks of not doing the right things.

To complete the actual offering we introduced three masterclasses that are open only to the Alumni of the full course track. Here we take the concepts and best practises of business analyses, functional analysis and functional design to the next level. Together we go all the way in a life case and build all the models from the ground up in the available templates.
