Business analysis training will provide you with the necessary skills to manage an organization for efficiencies; solve operational problems, and address the ongoing challenges of doing more with less.

Cost benefit analysis is a critical skill for managing risk. Understanding the three critical areas of successful organizational change – people, processes and technology will be discussed. The objective of the business analysis programme is to prepare you with tools and techniques to run your organization using the business analysis approach: namely define the problem; determine the need, and consider all impacted stakeholders. The programme will expose you to techniques in elicitation; analysis using diagramming and modelling; and writing effective specifications to describe what the organization requires in order to solve the problem.

Situational policing

Course leader:

Situational policing recognizes the various stages of the progressive relationship between police and the communities they serve.  As communities move through different developmental stages, the police must respond to each of these stages, and these responses may be based upon community maturity/organizational maturity; community relations; and community and organizational expectations. The model presented is flexible enough to adapt to any policing environment and can help police leaders in setting their strategic goals and objectives.
