Description

This instructor-led training is course designed to provide UI subject matter experts (SMEs), who interact with agency Business Analysts, IT and/or vendor staff, valuable information on improving business processes, project management, how to effectively communicate the business needs of the Agency, provide business rules, and preparing for user acceptance testing.  SMEs will understand their role in a modernization project and the role of others from project planning, requirements definition, and throughout the software development life cycle. Hands-on activities include redesigning a business process, accurately communicating business requirements, distinguishing a functional requirement from a business rule, writing business rules, proofing a draft use case, and identifying possible test scenarios.

ITSC instructors deliver the two-day training at state sites and offer it periodically in 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.
