The Quality Assurance Institute is now offering an online Live Webinar. This 2 Hours Web–based Seminar has been designed specifically to help the Business Analysts professional gain understanding of the role the Business Analyst (BA) plays in Estimation.

Good estimation is the key to success of any project and good estimation depends on having a good understanding of the scope of work to be done, thus the role of a Business Analyst is very important in estimation.
Right from the time of pre-sales to the end of the project estimation is done at various milestones to set clear expectations of effort and schedule requirements and thus derive the project cost.
