  • Companies Improve ROI in Software Development with Business Analysis Training from Pierson

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, March 24, 2009 ) Companies no longer have to suffer poor return on investments (ROI), or accept costly redesign efforts as the norm in software development. Business analysis training and JAD training classes from Pierson Requirements Group help members of management and staff work together to avoid the most common pitfalls in requirements planning to maximize efficiency and ROI. 

    “The problems most companies have with software development are due to poor requirements rather than coding," says Pierson Requirements Group Partner, Joy Matthews. “Developers know how to code to code but the business requirements are most often incomplete and don’t effectively communicate the business needs. The lack of effective requirements gathering and writing leads to 82% of the software re-design and maintenance efforts causing companies to waste millions of dollars a year on ineffective software implementations and lost product to market opportunities. [Our] customers have found that it is a 200:1 cost savings to find defects in requirements rather than in the maintenance phase."

    Pierson provides hands-on training in requirements gathering and writing, testing, and project management with an interactive approach. The business analyst training classes are designed to improve project performance by teaching project teams how to work together to implement industry standards and best practices. 

    The methodology is so effective that customers of Pierson Requirements Group have reported that $12,000 - $15,000 business analyst training classes have produced an ROI of $144,000 to $192,000 in the first year. According to Matthews, "Surveys of Pierson's customers have found that the use of a Collaborative Requirements Approach saved 25% to 33% of time over the entire project, or three to four months out of a year-long project."

    Pierson offers training classes or seminars in business requirements analysis, UML and business modeling, QA testing, project management, requirements gathering and writing, JAD facilitation and requirements gathering, and more. The company also offers mentoring and consulting services for more direct involvement in clients' software development projects.
