Description

This instructor-led curriculum is designed to support states in planning UI IT Modernization projects by giving UI Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) hands-on experience with business analysis techniques for improving UI business processes; developing and documenting requirements; and working with development vendors. The training assists participants in understanding what a business requirement is and the challenges faced in defining requirements correctly. It includes practical approaches based on UI-specific successful practices of states and consortiums for eliciting and managing requirements. Participants will be able to apply these methods to UI IT Modernization efforts within their state UI agencies.

Total training time is estimated to be three days of in-person training conducted at state sites. The training will also be offered periodically from the ITSC offices in Washington, D.C.  If you are interested in attending or scheduling this classroom training, please reach out to learning@naswa.org.

After completing the Boot Camp curriculum, participants will:

  • understand the business analysis process as it is applied throughout a UI IT modernization project
  • learn, in their role as a business analysts, how to participate in the project development life cycle—supporting the established solution, vision, and scope of the new system while gathering, eliciting, analyzing and documenting requirements
  • practice implementing use-case modelling and requirements management techniques to define and document requirements that meet their state’s needs

The Audience: The Boot Camp is intended to serve several audiences with a variety of mandates. Primarily, it will provide business analysis basics and successful practices to UI SMEs. Those individuals, who perform business analysis in UI organizations, have titles that include business analyst, systems analyst, project manager, and various other IT support designations.  Those who supervise and/or work with business analysts, including administrators, directors, and managers will also benefit from participating in the Boot Camp or in a Boot Camp overview session, so they may understand the process their UI staff must step through in designing UI software applications.
