Business Analysis for the Project Manager - Ithaca In-Person Event

Power Skills


NOTE: This is the in-person Ithaca event. Please use the Virtual event if attending remotely.

Event Description: 

Business Analysis for Project Managers looks at the project lifecycle as a whole and identifies what business analysis processes and deliverables are important at what phases. Business analysis needs to be done on a project whether a Business Analyst (BA) is assigned or not. Very often people are doing business analysis without realizing that’s what they’re doing. If no BA is assigned to a project, then the Project Manager will need to ensure the work is being done by others, if not do it themselves. This presentation will summarize all the BA tasks that should be performed, and the deliverables that should be produced, so that the PM can ensure that structure is being brought to the business analysis process on their projects.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Review of the project lifecycle phases
  • Identify what BA deliverables are applicable in what phases
  • Understand what those deliverables are, the purpose they serve, and what form they should take
