Learn how to develop and manage your project requirements with ease

Every product or service development starts with requirements. What are they?

Many teams struggle with how to elicit requirements, analyze and document them, and manage this information throughout the product or service life cycle. During this course, you will learn what requirements development and management is, and how to perform them in your project.

This three-day BCS EXIN Requirements Engineering course is designed for people who want to learn how to elicit, analyze, validate,  document, and manage requirements. It presents an end-to-end requirements engineering framework supported by tools and techniques that may be used at different stages. You will learn how to produce well-formed, high-quality requirements that are crucial to delivering quality products.

The course is based on the BCS publication Business Analysis, 4th edition, and it is recommended to study this book before the exam.


This course is suitable for Business Analysts, System Analysts, Product Owners, Business Managers and members of their teams, Business Change Managers, and Project Managers.


Define Requirements Approach and Project Scope

This module explains the origins of Requirements Engineering and explains why Requirements Engineering is important. In this module, we learn how to prepare for the Requirements Engineering activities.

Elicit Requirements

This module explains different types of knowledge: tacit and explicit. It also discusses requirements elicitation techniques and their advantages and disadvantages.

Record Requirements (Documentation)

This module focuses on how to document requirements. Different frameworks for requirements formulation are introduced (traditional requirements statements, user stories).

Hierarchy of requirements

This module introduces two types of requirements: business and solution with subcategories within each requirement type.
It explains the dependencies between requirements types and categories.

Build Models and Prototypes to Represent the Requirements

This module introduces system models to model dynamic and static aspects of systems and, therefore, help in requirements elicitation and analysis. The basis of this module is a use case diagram, class diagram, and CRUD matrix. It also explains how to use prototyping to elaborate requirements.

Collaborate and Communicate with Stakeholders to Clarify Requirements

This module discusses different stakeholders in Requirements Engineering as well as their contribution to this process. It also explains how to check the requirements and whether they properly address the stakeholders’ needs. It discusses different validation approaches and zooms into a review process.

Analyze, Prioritize and Assure the Quality of Requirements

This module focuses on how to check the feasibility of requirements and perform quality checks to ensure their good quality.

Conduct User Analysis and Profiling

This module explains techniques used to analyze user roles and explains how customer journey maps contribute to requirements development.

Requirements Management and Traceability

This module tackles aspects of requirements management like configuration control, change control, and baselining. It also discusses the advantages and pitfalls of the usage of dedicated tooling such as Requirements Management packages.
