TARB is a VERY VISUAL and FREE COURSE

Course in Advanced Business Analysis

How to Convert the IT Department into a Business Driver?

How to Achieve a Strategic Advantage with IT?

How to Become a Business Analyst?

Systems Analysis = Business Analysis + Process Analysis + Functional Analysis + ...

Systems Analysis is indefinitely more than ...

  • Gathering and managing requirements
  • Studying the details
  • Looking inwards. Studying the parts and their relations.
  • Producing UML or BPMN models, Stories or Specifications
  • Translating a demand into artefacts understandable by IT-people
  • Functioning as bridge
  • Responding to demands. Doing what is asked and delivering what is requested.
  • Satisfying the client by meeting his expectations.

These views miss the core, the essence, of Systems Analysis and engender a deprofessionalisation of the Systems Analyst.
