More about Business Analysis Training Courses

Business analysts are, for all intents and purposes, the link between the various departments and teams in an organization and are crucial to overall business success. The job of the business analyst is to define the needs of an organization and recommend decision making approaches for solving business problems.

The overall goal is to identify and confront potential problems before they happen and suggest solutions that maximize value to stakeholders. Business analysis is generally described as a linear process, usually involving multiple parties and taking place at numerous levels within an organization.

The First Step of Business Analysis

Product development, project management, quality assurance, software development and even management all rely heavily on business analysis skills as part of their jobs.  All these positions must work closely with the core business structure, understanding the way the business functions as a background for creating solutions to the business problems that fall within their specific purview.

Business Requirements Analysis

Business requirements analysis functions much as it sounds, determining the specific requirements that enable a system, process, task or campaign to succeed. Determining requirements is the heart of the business analysis process. Requirements must be documented, measurable, testable and directly related to specific business needs or opportunities. In general, the requirements process happens in three broad phases:

  • Requirements gathering
  • Analyzing requirements
  • Documenting requirements

Creating requirements lists and ensuring that business requirements are in line with stakeholder needs is a long, long process ending in impressively long lists of functional requirements that are then tested.  A requirements list is, in many ways, never complete. Business analysts must work tirelessly to unearth all potential requirements and confer with stakeholders to determine that requirements are aligned with business objectives.

As complicated as business requirements can get, they all boil down to one general question: Why? The purpose of business requirements analysis is determining the root business needs, which requires a group of highly critical minds taking part in near endless testing.

Once tested, requirements become use cases, which outline the steps necessary for performing a specific task. Traditionally an aspect of software engineering, uses cases are designed to outline stakeholder goals and are the main drivers of development.  Their purpose however is not software specific and this fairly technical approach to outlining actors, goals, conditions and requirements has found a welcome place in many organizations. Learn how to make the most of use cases with a course in
