The business analyst (BA) uses numerous methods, tools, and techniques to structure information collected from stakeholders when eliciting requirements, assess gaps, and define and document the capabilities of the solution. Through iterations, the BA must ensure that the proposed requirements are feasible and support the business needs and objectives, and that all stakeholders have a shared understanding of and agreement to the requirements.
A BA working on a project frequently uses a variety of analysis and documentation techniques from three broad categories: business process analysis, object-oriented analysis, and structured systems analysis. Many of these models are addressed by the Object Development Group's UML specifications.
This course examines the role of the BA in the Requirements Analysis Knowledge Area of the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK). Practical tasks and techniques are presented to equip the BA with the skills and knowledge required to analyze and document accurate and complete requirements from stakeholders using numerous techniques.
