Stakeholders are a key to any project, and understanding our stakeholders, their wants and their needs is essential for any successful project. In this session we are going to look at some diverse ways to analyze our stakeholders. We will look at journey maps and empathy maps to help us understand how we can build and use them as part of stakeholder analysis.
Business Analysts, or those performing this role, have created Business Requirements Documents (BRDs) for many years. This was often done in the early stages of a project, documenting very detailed requirements that were often considered “frozen” because of the complexities and effort to produce them. The Agile world has turned the role of the business analyst upside down.
Defining and elaborating requirements is especially important when you think about your projects, your IT strategy, or your business strategy. It is all about product requirements because you have to propose the solution which will satisfy all consumers. But how could you know what kind of characteristics the product must have? This presentation will propose the approaches and practices of creating a successful project perfectly from the start as you define and elaborate requirements.
There are many myths surrounding the discipline of business analysis: the myth of gathering requirements, the myth of the user, the myth that the business knows what it wants and so forth. What distinguishes the successful business analyst from others is the successful business analyst recognizes the myths and does not succumb to them. This presentation addresses these and other myths and how to overcome the mindset of business analyst myths.
The Business Analysis (BA) has a critical role in helping an organization realize benefits of a project initiative. The BA is essential in defining the capabilities of the project product and implementing the operational capabilities of the project. This presentation will focus on the BA helping the business transition a project to operations for sustaining change.
