Business analysis (BA) is about organizational understanding and the ability to evaluate a solution in the “context” of its application within the organization. The Business Analyst is an agent of change and mastering the art of business analysis provides a disciplined approach for evaluating, introducing, and managing changes to organizations – primarily from an “operational” context. If a solution to a problem or goal is not an organizational fit – e.g. due to cost, time, resources, return on investment, etc. – then the efforts to evaluate and implement that solution are wasted and detrimental to the health of the organization. Developing your skills in business analysis accentuates your business acumen and supports your “enterprise” perspective when assessing strategic initiatives, goals, and projects.
HR professionals - committed to their chosen profession of Human Resources, committed to improving the relationship between the organization and Human Resources, and committed to giving and sharing their experiences with their colleagues – have come together to build educational courses that blend and translate quantitative skills such as business analysis and qualitative skills like leadership.
HRPMO University courses are designed by Human Resources professionals, HR Project Management pros and Business Analysis professionals to build competencies and skills with our participants that accomplish multiple goals. First – to ensure an integrated foundation – the coursework is:

HRPMO University’s "Building a Business Case for Human Resources" course is designed to take you successfully through understanding the tools of business analysis and critical reasoning, structuring a business case project using a project management foundation, and integrating change management and organizational context into your assessment and project execution.
And most important – they are "your projects." Though our instructors bring experience and case studies to give you examples for learning and best practices - our instruction will focus on how you can use the training and tools immediately. Our goal is for you to return to your organization with plans for your own initiatives and a clear understanding of the next steps you need to take to start your research, build your business case, win support, and execute your initiative.
Those who will benefit from this course are:
Through case studies of actual projects, templates developed to support a structured analytical process, and a mock competition to help you practice pitching your project to potential sponsors, you will learn how to evaluate your project from both a qualitative and quantitative perspective. More importantly – you will practice crafting your presentation to executive sponsors to address the value of the project from their view.

The beginning of the week will focus on the qualitative concepts of Business Analysis and Human Resources and how to integrate them. Then the quantitative aspects of a Business Analysis project and the specific framework of the methodology will be explored in depth. As the week progresses, the concepts and tools will increase in complexity providing a foundation of processes used to plan, analyze, define, organize, and execute a BA project. Finally, the course will end with development of a business report and strategy to successfully achieve evaluation and/or approval of the recommended solution.
