Course Title
Building a Requirements Package


A fundamental part of business analysis involves the communication of solutions to stakeholders. Often, this communication includes technical information. A requirements package is a document or presentation that conveys information in an understandable way and will include evaluation of possible alternatives, formal review and approvals, inputs to solution design and conformance to regulatory obligations.  

In this class, you will learn to differentiate between a deliverable (a specific output of the business analysis process that the business analyst has agreed to produce) and a work product (a document or collection of notes or diagrams used during the requirements development process.) It will assist you in writing clearly and concisely to inform all stakeholders in an effective and professional manner.
