Upcoming Workshop: 2-day power-packed workshop to learn about business analysis frameworks and best practices in Mumbai & Bangalore


Business analysis provides a solid foundation for almost every type of change in an organization. Business analysts investigate the work of the business to locate both the problems to be corrected and recommend solutions to improve business processes. Business analysis is not a single competency, but rather a combination of modelling, systemic thinking, innovating, communicating, process analysis, persuasion and several other analytical skills.

Business Analysts are increasingly required to extend themselves beyond their traditional role of developing and maintaining IT systems. They need the capability to understand the business strategy, use proven techniques to analyze the business area, and identify changes to business processes needed to meet internal and external challenges.


Our 2-day workshop offers comprehensive coverage of key Business Analysis topics such as Enterprise Management, Requirements Elicitation, Solution Design, Strategy Analysis and Stakeholder Management.

What is an EDP?
Executive development programs are customized and highly targeted short-term programs geared towards executives and managers who show great future potential. There always exists a gap between the level at which an executive performs and their potential. Executive development programs aim to harness this untapped potential and create future-ready leaders of tomorrow.
Why are EDPs necessary?
Most new managers feel as though they have been thrown into the middle of the ocean without a life-jacket. Mastering managerial skills will provide managers with the confidence and skills required to manage themselves as well as the team. The training programs serve to sharpen the essential lessons which can be applied to real life situations.
What is the difference between a MDP and an EDP?
While the format of the workshop is essentially the same, the key difference lies in the target audience for these workshops. Management Development Programs are aimed at current leaders (VP-CXO level professionals) who are already familiar with a topic but want to gain new perspectives as a way of strategic development. Executive Development Programs are aimed at executives and managers—the future leaders—who need knowledge transfer on a subject of current interest in order to make better decisions in their current profiles.
What is the duration of the program?
Our workshops offer intensive training and knowledge transfer in a short span of 2 days.
What is the format of the program?
The workshops are conducted as Instructor-led classroom trainings. These workshops are designed and delivered by experienced faculty from the corporate or academic world with proven expertise of executive education. The venue for the workshops will be a three-star hotel where lunch and refreshments will also be served.
How many participants will be there in each workshop?
Each workshop will have no more than 30 participants to ensure effective learning and personalized attention to the needs of all participants.
I like the program, but the price is too high. What can I do?
We offer 10% discount for early bird enrolments for all our programs. However, if you are really keen on attending the workshop but the price is a constraint, your best bet is to ask your Manager or Training Head to nominate you for the workshop, and thereby the cost can be borne by your company.
