The business analyst role can cover a wide range of responsibilities, including the elicitation and documenting of business requirements, upfront strategic work, design and implementation phases. Typical difficulties faced by analysts include stakeholders who disagree or don't know their requirements, handling estimates and project deadlines that conflict, and what to do if all the requirements are top priority. The Business Analysis Handbook offers practical solutions to these and other common problems which arise when uncovering requirements or conducting business analysis. Getting requirements right is difficult; this book offers guidance on delivering the right project results, avoiding extra cost and work, and increasing the benefits to the organization. The Business Analysis Handbook provides an understanding of the analyst role and the soft skills required, and outlines industry standard tools and techniques with guidelines on their use to suit the most appropriate situations. Covering numerous techniques such as Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), use cases and user stories, this essential guide also includes standard templates to save time and ensure nothing important is missed.

The second edition of this book is a response to the fact that today BAs are expected to not merely help in gathering requirement for software, but solve real-world business problems, act as design thinkers and innovators, architects, drive process, and business transformation, and become ‘trusted advisors’ to managements—while leveraging their core strength in Information Technology. If the earlier edition was the first book on the subject—this edition takes the subject to the next level by preparing a BA to become a design thinker! An architect/design thinker usually views any problem from multiple perspectives. This edition, has therefore, been structured such that most of the chapters represent a distinct view-point about a problem space, business area or a process. Divided into five sections, the book delves onto three important aspects of Business Analysis—Processes, Information and Systems. The external enterprise context, competitiveness and strategy; internal enterprise context; flow perspective; information perspective; decision/business rules perspective; dynamic perspective; innovation and human perspective and technology perspective are some of the key view-points described in the chapters. Each of these perspectives are covered by way of conceptual framework, real-life illustrations and practical tips for a BA. With the help of a comprehensive cases, this edition guides the BA to synthesize these discrete perspectives, and propose meaningful solutions to the organization. In doing this, the book also explains the core artifacts which a BA produces, viz. Requirements Documents, Estimation and Business Cases. The book is designed for the aspiring Business Analysts and IT Managers/CIOs. Besides, the book will be equally beneficial for the students opting for the courses on MIS, Systems Analysis and Design, MBA, MCA and Business Process Analysis.

WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT? Business Analysis in the Real World A Buddhist proverb warns, “Be mindful of intention. Intention is the seed that creates our future.” In a very real sense, this statement expresses the reason for business analysis. This discipline is really all about choosing and defining a desired future because without intention (expressed in business analysis terms, “requirements”), no future is more or less desirable than another. In reality, every organization does some form of business analysis whether it uses the term or not. For many (especially larger organizations), it is an extremely structured, managed process while others thrive on change and only do business analysis when and as needed. The perception that business analysis is only needed to develop IT solutions is inaccurate. Actually, it is a critical component of any change initiative within an organization whether software is involved or not. Current Business Analysis Techniques and Methods The book defines how business analysis is currently practiced. The authors provide insight into this fast-growing field by distinguishing strategic, tactical, and operational business analysis. It provides surveys of what Business Analysts really do and what business analysis techniques people use most often when they are the one “wearing the BA hat”. You will learn what “requirements” really are and what different types of requirements exist. Because many requirements define future information technology (IT) solutions, the authors share their experience on how Waterfall, Iterative, Agile, and Experimental (aka “Chaotic”) Software Development methodologies impact the business analysis responsibility. Who Needs Business Analysis Skills? Although the field of Business Analysis offers great career opportunities for those seeking employment, some level of business analysis skill is essential for any adult in the business world today. Many of the techniques used in the field evolved from earlier lessons learned in systems analysis and have proven themselves to be useful in every walk of life. We have personally experienced how business analysis techniques help even in your private life. We wrote this book for everyday people in the real world to give you a basic understanding of some core business analysis methods and concepts. If this book answers some of your questions, great. If it raises more questions than it answers (implying that it piqued your curiosity), even better. If it motivates you to learn more about this emerging and fascinating topic, it has served its purpose well. WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM READING THIS BOOK? Many distinct roles or job titles in the business community perform business needs analysis for digital solutions. They include: - Product Owners - Business Analysts - Requirements Engineers - Test Developers - Business- and Customer-side Team Members - Agile Team Members - Subject Matter Experts (SME) - Project Leaders and Managers - Systems Analysts and Designers - AND “anyone wearing the business analysis hat”, meaning anyone responsible for defining a future digital solution TOM AND ANGELA’S (the authors) STORY Like all good IT stories, theirs started on a project many years ago. Tom was the super techie, Angela the super SME. They fought their way through the 3-year development of a new policy maintenance system for an insurance company. They vehemently disagreed on many aspects, but in the process discovered a fundamental truth about IT projects. The business community (Angela) should decide on the business needs while the technical team’s (Tom)’s job was to make the technology deliver what the business needed. Talk about a revolutionary idea! All that was left was learning how to communicate with each other without bloodshed to make the project a resounding success. Mission accomplished. They decided this epiphany was so important that the world needed to know about it. As a result, they made it their mission (and their passion) to share this ground-breaking concept with the rest of the world. To achieve that lofty goal, they married and began the mission that still defines their life. After over 30 years of living and working together 24x7x365, they are still wildly enthusiastic about helping the victims of technology learn how to ask for and get the digital (IT) solutions they need to do their jobs better. More importantly, they are more enthusiastically in love with each other than ever before!

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is an essential part of the fabric of a business; however, EA also transcends and transforms technology and moves it into the business space. Therefore, EA needs to be discussed in an integrated, holistic, and comprehensive manner. Only such an integrated approach to EA can provide the foundation for a transformation that readies the business for the myriad enterprise-wide challenges it will face. Highly disruptive technologies such as Big Data, Machine Learning, and Mobile and Cloud Computing require a fine balance between their business and technical aspects as an organization moves forward with its digital transformation. This book focuses on preparing all organizations – large and small – and those wishing to move into them for the impact of leveraging these emerging, disruptive, and innovative technologies within the EA framework.

The Internet has ushered in a new era in the economies of networking. With the increasing need for optimization based on these network economies, the IT-based e-business has become a platform for study as well as daily practice. In a similar vein, global warming has raised many issues which come into conflict with traditional research and policies. The Internet revolution has also shifted our society from a government- and company-led economy to a ‘netizen’- and consumer-led business world. This book enlightens us on why a harmonized participation of traditional network members or interested groups is necessary and how we can create values from diverse fields of interests and objectives, including the corporate social responsibility (CSR) and eco-friendly productivity. Digital Business and Sustainable Development integrates the platforms from these two fields of study based on the comparative analysis of Asian and other developing countries.

Business analysis involves determining how an organization functions and identifying its capabilities, and then recommending solutions that will enable the organization to reach its goals. The BABOK® Guide defines the field of business analysis and serves as a benchmark for both business analysis practitioners and the organizations using their services.A business analyst is responsible for understanding an organization and its needs, and identifying problems and solutions. They then determine the changes that are necessary for the organization to achieve its goals and objectives.As a business analyst, there are several key competencies that are important to understand and develop. These are analytical thinking and problem solving, appropriate behavioral characteristics, business and software knowledge, and communication and interaction skills.Analytical thinking and problem solving include creative thinking, decision making, learning, problem solving, and systems thinking. Each of these competencies can assist business analysts in helping clients to solve underlying problems as efficiently and effectively as possible.A business analysis approach defines how and when business analysis tasks will be performed, and what deliverables they will produce. It must take organizational process requirements and the objectives of an initiative into account, and meet agreed standards.Inputs for planning a business analysis approach include the business needs an initiative is designed to address, expert judgment, and organizational process assets. A business analysis approach may be plan-driven, change-driven, or a combination. The type of approach chosen is influenced by elements of the project.Stakeholder analysis is the process of identifying all stakeholders in a project or initiative, as well as their roles, authority levels, influence, and attitudes. The inputs of a stakeholder analysis include the business need an initiative is designed to address, enterprise architecture, and organizational process assets.Specific stakeholders can assist in the stakeholder analysis process by identifying and evaluating additional stakeholders.A business analysis plan should identify required business analysis activities and results, the amount of work needed to complete the activities, and the management tools required to monitor business analysis activities.A business analyst uses four inputs when developing a business analysis plan - the chosen business analysis approach, business analysis performance assessment, organizational process assets, and the stakeholder list, roles, and responsibilities.One of the primary responsibilities of the business analyst is to effect good communication with and among key stakeholders by creating a business analysis communication plan. The four inputs to this plan include the business analysis approach, business analysis plans, organizational process assets, and stakeholder list, roles, and responsibilities.A business analyst considers five elements when creating a business analysis communication plan. These include geography, culture, project type, communication frequency, and communications formality.The plan requirements management process describes the process that will be used to approve requirements for implementation. It is also used to assess the need for requirements traceability. Inputs of the plan requirements management process include the business analysis approach, a business analysis plan, and organizational process assets.The plan requirements management process includes several elements to consider. These include a repository, traceability, requirements attributes, a requirement prioritization process plan, change management considerations, and the need for tailoring of the process.
