Participants are given a scenario in which they work in teams to define their approach for elicitation and analysis. Skills and techniques covered in the prior days of Essential Skills for Business Analysis are utilized and a checklist is provided to rate their approach, revise, and present a final analysis approach. As the day progresses, students have the opportunity to “Swim with the Sharks”. The “sharks” are additional scenarios that simulate real world project obstacles in which participants make decisions on how to overcome and maneuver through the rough waters. Lessons provide concrete tips and techniques to effectively handle each situation.
