Business Analysis SIG
This article applies to: Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
The Business Analysis Special Interest Group (BA-SIG) provides a space where business analysts can share their experiences, tips, and techniques. The aim is to create and promote synergies among business analysts, and to advance, enhance, and normalize the practice of business analysis at the institution.
- Review the project methodology step-by-step to establish a common understanding.
- Discuss when the business analyst (BA) is involved and what role they play at various junctures.
- Evaluate common standard deliverables that the BA produces, the purpose they serve, when they would and wouldn’t be used, and the point in time in the methodology that they are needed.
Topics for Fall:
- October 11, 2022 — Two quick overviews: stakeholder analysis; modeling statuses and state transition.
- November 9, 2022 — All about quality assurance: test cases, test scripts, and test plans (with guest co-presenter Diane Kubarek).
- December 13, 2022 — Roles and responsibilities: define each team member’s role in the project using the RACI matrix.
