About This Class

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. 

Master Specific Elicitation Techniques to Set Yourself Apart from the Growing Crowd of Business Analysts

  • Learn the elicitation techniques you should be using to get the correct information from your stakeholders
  • Be confident you are asking the right questions
  • Get detailed requirements and minimize requirement gaps

To get the most out of this course, you should have an understanding of what the business analyst job function is. I also recommend you complete the Mastering Business Analysis Communications course prior to this course. While it is not required, it will set the stage for what you are learning in this course.

Content and Overview

You'll begin the course with an overview of the 14 characteristics of good requirements

You'll gain an understanding of how to identify missing information that keeps a requirement from being complete

You'll learn elicitation techniques that can be applied to multiple situations and how to determine which technique you should use for any given project.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • 12 lectures and more than 2 hours of content
  • Understand the techniques to elicit requirements
  • Recognize when requirements are complete
  • Help your stakeholders prioritize requirements

Who is the target audience?

  • Current business analysts that are not confident in requirements elicitation meetings
  • Business analysts that are consistently missing requirements
  • Individuals that want to move into the business analyst career


As of March 30, 2018, we will no longer participate in the IIBA endorsed education provider (EEP) program. The fees for this program have doubled in the last year and in order to continue providing affordable training, we have chosen to stop participating in this program.

Based on the guidelines from the IIBA, you may be able to use the course work from Skillshare to qualify for CDUs needed to maintain/recertify your current IIBA certifications. We encourage you to review the current guidelines the IIBA has published to determine if you may use your Skillshare coursework for CDUs.
