Business and Systems Analysts Guided Training March 2018

Hello everybody! My name is Alexey Kiselev and I’m a Head of a Systems Analysts Department with 10+ years of experience. I did multiple courses (something about 15), video courses like this one from Udemy with more than 2500 students from 120 countries, my last Russian language course attended by 280 students, I also got a blog with more than 100 000 views (this one).

I started my career in 2008 as a Business Analyst, since 2013 I’m mostly playing a Systems Analyst’s role. I built couple asset management system for oil corporations, government statistic storage, amount of different Case Management solutions, improved couple platforms for budgeting and Case Management, etc.

I received more than 30 requests to repeat the training I made in Russian in 2017, so I decided to repeat it but for 6 students only.

Why do we need it in general?

My main aim is to give you an opportunity to partially complete real application requirements from idea to implementation. No long lectures, tasks and challenges only under my control and with my help (ok, my useful hyperlinks). More performance – more results.

What are we going to do?

Oh, this is obvious – we are going to study. A lot.

  • We will find a problem, we will try to solve it via our small application.
  • To create our small application – we will do a full vision with a couple of supportive diagrams like Context Diagram.
  • Then we will do a use case steps scenarios for one of the user stories defined in vision.
  • Fix non-functional requirements.
  • Do a database model.
  • Create a task for developers to implement one user interface.

It will be no customer – only year ideas and my skeptical view. Do not expect a lot of pure BPMN and UML because I’m a bit tired of them and analysis is mostly about your brain and analysis skills and techniques – not about just a diagram. I wish we could do an implementation and testing, but I believe we will have no enough developers in our group.

How we are going to do that?

I’ll provide a at least 2 feedback sessions for all of your documents. This is not a boring theoretical course (if you need a boring one – you’ll get an access to this one available on click on this hyperlink). My feedback available in Telegram text form 8 am – 3 pm weekly and 4 pm – 8 pm weekly via Telegram or Skype conference. My time zone is PST.

What you’ll receive at the end of the training?

My respect and reference via Linkedin. Why respect? Because it seem ok to me to remove people from group with no refund if they are not actively working for any reason (if you got intensive project at work – please do not apply). You’ll also get a free certificate from the Udemy.

Who’ll find this training useful?

It seem to me that 1-5 years of experience will be best to fit course entry requirements. All you need is a theoretical base.

What is the length of the course?

Depends on your performance. i would expect 1-2 months.

When are we going to start?

I believe we should start in March.

How it is possible to become a student?

Just apply via google form whenever it’ll be available. I’ll got 6 spots there only..
