Business Analysis Essentials

What I would highlight: The Metadata Training Business Analysis Essentials Course was a great overview of the industry. The tutor made the course material even more relevant by drawing on his own high level experience of Business Analysis, and that of others in the group. As the course was completed over a weekend I was able to gain the qualification without taking any time out of the office. The supportive small group setting meant I was able to put new ideas learnt straight into practice in the workplace. My employer was delighted with the results of the course, and the real efficiency gains we were able to achieve after the course. I have since been able to influence the direction of transformation reviews in my organisation to include elements of the Soft Systems Methodology as well as our existing Lean Thinking. The course was great value, much cheaper than hiring in consultants, and the knowledge is now invested within the team.

Advantages of studying here

We are a relatively small company with low overheads which enables us to offer courses at highly competitive prices but this does not mean any compromise on quality. We care passionately about what we do and are keen to ensure that everyone attending our courses derives the maximum benefit.

Academic Rigour and Practical Experience
Some companies are great on theory but can't relate it to the real world. Some companies have experience but don't keep pace with the latest thinking. We believe we have a great combination of academic rigour coupled with years of practical experience gained in blue chip private sector companies and in the public sector.

Our Approach
Courses combine lectures, exercises, case studies and practice examination papers (where appropriate). This ensures that attendees have a firm grasp of theory and the opportunity to apply it in realistic situations.

After your Course
Support from Metadata does not end when the course finishes. For our Business Analysis courses, we host (free of charge) an intuitive web-based online community that enables our course attendees to post questions and suggestions to us and other attendees, thereby offering a unique opportunity for collaboration and knowledge management. This community is only open to those who have attended Metadata training courses.

Areas of specialisation

Metadata Training are an BCS(ISEB) accredited business analysis training course and exam provider. From a small Business Analysis specialist company you benefit from considerable support and resulting high pass rates.

Our public business analysis training courses follow syllabi set by the British Computer Society (BCS) leading to the BCS Business Analysis Certificates and Diploma qualifications - the most recognised certification for business analysts. Search for business analysis jobs – the greatest demand and the best contractor rates are for BCS qualified business analysts.

Our training is delivered by real experts with years of practical training and teaching experience. As a small company, based in Central London, we offer affordable business analysis training courses in a flexible, friendly but professional way. Our public weekend courses are particularly attractive to contractors or busy professionals.

If your organisation needs to train several staff, an in-house course is usually cheapest. We can customise our business analysis training courses with further material (eg on data modelling, UML, business process modelling, agile development) specific to your requirements.
