About This Class

Do you walk into requirements elicitation sessions already sweating because you can't stop worrying about what you might miss, or if someone will think you're not a "good" BA?

Eliciting requirements from stakeholders is the most important part of a business analyst's job. Everything you do, everything you document is based on those requirements. Everyone else on the project is relying on that documentation to do their part. Scary, right? Well, it doesn't have to be.
