About this course:
The solution, assessment, validation, and implementation of issues and/or opportunities depends on the quality alternatives identified through requirements, gatherings, and analysis. In this final process step, the business analyst can strategically propose and model effective solutions within the context of the organization. Key “deliverables” in this course include development of estimates for time and the resources and budgets required to implement solutions that meet the project requirements. Additionally, this course focuses on how to design and implement solutions with measurable, reportable outcomes. Business analysts are accountable for proposed solutions just as they are accountable for prior process steps. In this class, the student learns to facilitate the solution process: developing alternatives, solution selection, ensuring usability, supporting the quality assurance, and on-time, on-budget implementation. The ability to assess projects after implementation is included as a key component of a business analyst's job; therefore, learning how to evaluate internal reporting technology options as well as reporting formats is a prerequisite for future assessment and validation of the solution(s). Effective stakeholder communications of the impacts and post-implementation reviews and assessments are a part of the business analyst's responsibilities and are included in this course.
