Business software is – at best – as good as the requirements that the software implements.

We offer tailor-made training courses on the topics of requirements engineering and business analysis. We adapt the contents to your organization, your tools, and your approach to software development. Below you find two examples of training courses we have designed and implemented: BPMN for product owners and crash course for business analysts.

BPMN for Product Owners

When software is developed or purchased, the business processes that the software supports should play a central role. However, looking at a typical requirements catalog for a software selection or a backlog full of user stories, one can hardly recognize the business processes. There is a gap between business processes and requirements. Properly used, BPMN can, help a product owner to design coherent processes and to break down user stories.
