Enterprise (Strategy) Analysis

Delivered by Adrian Reed of Blackmetric

This highly engaging short course focuses on how to carry out problem analysis before a project has been initiated and during a project’s early stages. It is designed to give you a thorough understanding of problem analysis and the “why” and “what” of projects. You will learn how to define a high-level “project concept summary” and develop in front problem analysis techniques.

Who should attend?

This course is aimed primarily at practising business analysts but is also suitable for project managers working alongside BAs who want to increase their knowledge of developing a project concept summary.
