Municipal Partner Background

the City of Roseville’s IT Department first approached Sacramento State in 2013, as they were interested in sending their staff to the Business Analysis certificate program. With the City and university close to 30 miles apart, a locally delivered program was the best solution.

The first cohort took seven courses in a classroom close to their office, leading to the first graduating class of 25 employees in 2014.

After the initial program’s success, the City of Roseville asked the university to customize content for the next cohort, focusing on specific business skills and tools to help the City transform its workforce.

The Challenge: Responding to Demands for Government Efficiency

The City of Roseville’s IT Department was transforming to align with City goals as well as recent revolutionary changes in technology. Transformation requires former systems analysts to develop new business analysis skills and align more with the city’s business units. The IT Department also recognized the need to develop business analysis skillsets in other departments.

The Solution: Onsite Training and Customization

CCE took the popular Business Analyst certificate program to Roseville again, only this time we added further customizations for the client. Courses were held at a city facility, at a time that fit employees’ schedules. The university added case studies focused on group collaboration, while the City added its own predetermined curriculum to the program.

“The City of Roseville is continually transforming its workforce to meet the needs of the public, become more efficient, transparent and innovative. Sacramento State has been a great partner and a great resource to help us meet our training goals.”
