AI (Artificial Intelligence) for Business Analysts Course 


Are you looking to expand your skills in using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to transform your business analysis and become a leader in leveraging emerging technologies

The future of business analysis lies at the intersection of human creativity and technological leverage. Our AI for Business Analysis course is an immersive and interactive journey to prepare experienced BA professionals for the AI-empowered future. Through real-world exercises with leading AI agents and tools, gain first-hand experience planning initiatives, analyzing requirements and devising solutions. You will learn methods of “prompt engineering” for using generative AI agents to produce key BA artifacts, research new subject matters, evaluate work, and conduct interviews with subject matter experts. Whilst balancing AI’s power to create content with human judgment, you will discover AI dialog techniques that will enable iterative and incremental analysis and development.

Instructor: Marc Balcer, Instructor and Consultant, SoftEd

Marc Balcer has spent his entire career in information technology and software development. A published expert in software testing and the creator of TAME – a model-driven platform for specifying and generating software tests. A co-author of two books, Executable UML: A Foundation for Model-Driven Architecture and Applied SOA: Service-Oriented Architecture and Design Strategies. In many professions, technologies and practices continually change. That’s why the agile philosophy is fundamentally about experimentation, curiosity, learning, and a willingness to try new things. So, to be an effective instructor, consultant, and course developer, I like to be continually hands-on, putting theory into practice.
