Writing and Managing Effective Requirements Abstract:
Successful projects are built on the foundation of well-understood requirements. This course provides the techniques to help BPAs write well-formed, verifiable requirements that translate stakeholder needs into clear and testable solutions.
User Acceptance Testing (UAT) Abstract:
All too often the software products delivered to the business do not meet their expectations, especially with regard to the quality of the product. An effective User Acceptance Testing (UAT) process addresses this issue by confirming the functionality and performance of the product prior to its release. This UAT workshop session looks at the business issues which drive the need for a fully functional UAT process and describes the components of such a process. It is designed to help the BPA to develop an understanding of their role, the process, and the deliverables associated with UAT.
Participants will learn the techniques necessary to perform:
Enterprise Analysis - ensuring goals and objectives are defined
Elicitation – to help better understand the needs of the stakeholders
Requirements Analysis – to define and refine solution requirements
Solution Assessment & Validation - to confirm the proposed approach will meet stakeholder’s needs
Requirements Management & Communication – to properly manage and communicate requirements
Develop an understanding about basic concepts associated with User Acceptance Testing
See how UAT applies to the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC)

Identify the key roles, activities and deliverables which make up User Acceptance Testing
