We work with the project sponsors and stakeholders to understand and document the
project or change objects and scope. A project/change initiation document will be
produced which defines its high level scope.
We’ll ensure that the scope is clearly and concisely defined and that it has the
agreement of sponsors and stakeholders.
We work with business owners from the business areas that are affected to understand
the current organisational landscape and the processes concerned.
To do this, we’ll act with tact and diplomacy and use our communication skills to
ensure we understand user needs in what is often a fast-changing environment.
BUSINESS CASE PRODUCTION
We assist in the production of a document setting out the detailed set of requirements
associated with the business change project. These requirements should enable the
chosen solution to be properly developed and tested without further significant analysis.
As part of the requirements definition, we’ll ensure that the impact of the potential
change is assessed and that the document produced describes the project’s objectives
and sets out the requirements for each business area. These requirements will be
prioritised into mandatory, desirable and optional categories.
We work in conjunction with Finance to help in the production of a business case
document which identifies the costs and benefits associated with a business change
We’ll see to it that the business case produced for each of the project options allows
the project sponsor to make informed decisions about project delivery.
The role of the Business Analyst often extends beyond the project’s initial requirements
We can help by working with business users and the delivery teams to ensure the best
solution is delivered.
BACK TO BUSINESS & TECHNOLOGY CONSULTANCY
Business analysis has been defined as ‘the capability to analyse the issues that
need to be solved to deliver intended business outcomes’.
Typically, most projects expend the least amount of time, effort and budget on business
analysis, with some research estimating this to be as little as 10%. And yet, most
errors actually occur during the analysis phase of a project and are the most expensive
to fix after this phase. The inescapable conclusion is that effective and rigorous
business analysis is an essential part of any project, small or large, and that ignoring
this fact will have potentially far reaching, adverse implications for the organisation.
Our expertise in this area allows us to offer business analysis services that ensure
your intended business outcomes are delivered.
