NICF- Business Analysis Fundamentals - Requirements Development

Overview

The practice and role of business analysis in an organisation is to identify and define its needs. This is achieved through critical value-added components such as the implementation of necessary changes and effective solutions. All of which are beneficial to the organisations and its stakeholders.

Business analysis is utilised to identify and articulate the need for change in how organisations work, and to facilitate that change. The Business Analyst is a change agent; identifying and defining solutions that will maximise the value delivered by an organisation to its stakeholders. Business analysts work across all levels of an organisation and may be involved in every aspect of the organisation from defining strategy, to creating the enterprise architecture, to taking a leadership role by defining the goals and requirements for programs and projects or supporting continuous improvement in its technology and processes.
