Webinar: Data Modeling Best Practices for BAs and PMs (Jan 25, 2017)
January 25, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM UTC-52 PDU/CDU
In this two-hour webinar participants will learn the essential concepts of data modeling for Business Analysts and Project Managers. Effective requirements definition requires a fundamental understanding of data modeling. Without it there is a significant risk that quality and value of process models, use-cases, user stories, requirements, and business rules could be significantly compromised. This two hour webinar is a perfect course that will give most PMs and BA’s everything they need to mitigate this risk and be successful in their roles.
