  • Defining Business Needs and Solution Scope

    Defining the Business Needs and Solution Scope applies an approach to using business analysis skills at the “fuzzy front end” of a change initiative or even before!

  • Testing Techniques for Tracing and Validating Requirements

    Don’t underestimate the importance of testing! To ensure project success, planning and executing the testing process must begin as soon as the vision and scope for the solution takes shape. As the requirements for the solution are elicited, the business analyst and the test team develop and refine a master test plan. This plan incorporates test strategies to identify any defects in the requirements, solution or corresponding documentation.

  • Developing Use Cases

    As a fundamental component to identifying requirements for a new system, business analysts must be able to illustrate how "actors", such as end users, stakeholders, or related systems, will be affected once the new system is implemented. This process, also known as Use Case Modeling, provides business analysts with a powerful tool for documenting functional requirements-and the interactions between these requirements-in a manner that can be easily communicated to designers, programmers, project manager, and other project stakeholders.
