The project sandwich


This presentation covers the importance of the business analysis/requirements gathering at the beginning of the project and how that relates to the UAT at the end of the project – and, of course, the influences of these activities throughout the project.

You will leave this breakout with:

  • A good understanding of the importance of good business analysis
  • Knowledge of how to apply the outcome of the business analysis to testing
  • An understanding of how the business analysis relates to the UAT and how to help guide a successful UAT
