Requirements Architecture and Requirements Definition. Seilevel trains all our requirements architects in our unique requirements approach. This approach was developed over the last decade, and uses visualization to create complete and accurate requirements. Our approach streamlines requirements gathering, adapting easily to your organization, your people, and your challenges. Our requirements architects provide Definition, Elicitation, Modeling, Visualization, Scope Control, and can advise on requirements tools best practices.
We have unmatched credibility in this area: two of our principals have written a book on visual software requirements published by Microsoft Press, and one of the Seilevel principals is a Certified Business Analyst (CBAP) who currently serves on the committee to write the next version of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK).
IT Product Management. Seilevel’s requirements services include IT Product Management, with a particular focus on feature definition and requirements project management. In addition, we can provide business analyst staffing as needed for particular projects or during specific timeframes.
Seilevel can identify BA skills gaps, and we provide IIBA-certified courses and customized workshops that enable individual BAs to mature their skills.
Requirements Core Concepts is an introduction that hones team skills and knowledge around gathering requirements. Students learn to recognize different types of requirements and get an introduction to techniques for elicitation, scope management, models and requirements review. Students will also learn how to write detailed requirements.
Requirements Visualization explores the advanced application of models. Over 12 different requirements models (for example, Use Cases, Context Diagrams, etc.) are covered. The training covers relationships between models and provides guidance on which models to apply in example project situations, and how to use models to significantly reduce the number of missed requirements.
Requirements Elicitation and Facilitation teaches detailed approaches to eliciting requirements. Students will master facilitation techniques with the goal of keeping stakeholders engaged and effectively flushing out the best possible requirements. Students will gain confidence in their skills to prepare for sessions, to conduct interviews, to apply models during the elicitation process, and to take effective notes.
Seilevel can provide an assessment of your business analyst organization, and design a program that will fit your needs through defining the roles, responsibilities, processes, and deliverables necessary for your organization to successfully define requirements. Through training, mentoring, workshops, and assessments, we can partner with our clients to build a Business Analyst Center of Excellence and Requirements Center of Excellence. Our hour-long session on building a Business Analyst Center of Excellence is IIBA-certified.
