UML for Business Analysts


Business analysts are increasingly utilising the Unified Modelling Language (UML) as a means to:

  • analyse and develop existing and proposed models of the business and the IT solutions that support it;
  • elicit, clarify and validate solution requirements with their stakeholders;
  • communicate effectively with solution developers
The UML techniques covered on this course are those that are most useful to business analysts and the programme encourages exploration and understanding through applying them to a realistic set of case study exercises. Key areas covered are:
  • Modelling concepts
  • Use Case models
  • Business Class models
  • State Machine models
By the end of the course, participants will be able to use a range of UML techniques effectively and will be better able to communicate through UML models with systems development professionals.

This course enables participants to develop SFIA skills BSMO and DTAN.
