Hi. I am not sure about your distinction about business development. are you refering to business strategy? definition? entrepreneurship? product development?
we have clear distinction about product life cicle from project life cycle, but i am not sure about your business development concept.

Yes. Need little bit more clarity about what you are looking for.

If you mean strtategic alignment of the project, then YES. A project has to align with the organisation on strategy, priorities (CSF/KPIs), execution mehodology.. in all. So a project should be strategically aligned to organisatoin strategic objectives throughout its life cycle

I can write a lot but perhaps the first point of reference is the PMI´s Practice Guide for Business Analysis. You will find into "collaboration" points stated into the guide how business analyst and project manager work together along the solution and I believe is a good point of reference to understand the way business and project team collaborate.

Agree with Sergio.
For a master thesis study, you need to rely on valid and verified resources.

If you refer to business development, like getting a contract it is more in marketing.
Otherwise, the selection of project or such Sergio made an excellent suggestion.

As Abolfazl pointed out, our opinions are only anecdotal evidence for your thesis. Should you not focus on empirical evidence?

There are really a number of project lifecycle aspects that may facilitate business development.

You may have projects that are strictly for business development, such as constructing model units to facilitate sales. (unique work)

You may have projects where additional requirements are added to support future business development, in addition to the primary purpose of the project, as it is more cost effective than a completely separate activity, e.g. incorporating new vendors or designs. (leveraging existing work)

You may have lessons learned from project, which can be used in future projects influencing business development. (planning future work based on prior work)

Great question. I will talk based on my personal experience. I performed BA work inside construction initiatives and I teached BA (Business Analysis) courses for construction companies where the audience was composed mainly by business developers and sales people. When I tried to understand and to learn about the reason they were there they ansered me: "it is because what you said in our previous meetings before taken the decision to be here: a business analyst is the person that will make people dreams comes true".
