Business Analysis Simulation (BA5324)

The most important factor in successfully implementing new tools, techniques and skills is to apply them in real life situations. Business Analysis Simulation is a 2-day, workshop to complete the Advanced Certificate in Business Analysis Program. It is designed to offer a variety of hands on, practical and comprehensive opportunities to work in a project environment. The success of each team is dependent upon their ability to think critically, react accordingly to unexpected situations and apply the knowledge and skills they have gained through previous workshops and on the job experience. Participants will finish the workshop at a competent level knowing that they can apply their knowledge and be self-directed to perform the work necessary for project success.
