+ Program Overview

Projects play an essential role in the growth and survival of organizations today. It is through projects that we create value in the form of improved business processes and new products and services in response to changes in the business environment. Since data and information are the lifeblood of virtually all business practices, IT projects are often the key mechanism used to turn an organization’s vision and strategy into reality. Executives across the spectrum are adopting the practice of superior business analysis to increase the value IT projects bring to the business. The talents, competencies, and heroics of project managers and technologists alone cannot drive value into the organization. For business needs and goals to be converted into innovative solutions that truly bring wealth to the enterprise, a stronger bridge must be built between the business and the technical communities, that is the role the Business Analyst. Why is the business analyst emerging as the central IT competency of the future? Because requirements play a vital role in engineering IT systems, and five of the top eight reasons why projects fail are tied directly to poor requirements.
