Our Approach

We believe in following correct standards and procedures. We follow Business Analysis Body of Knowledge

 

Step 1 – Define Business Needs

The business need defines the problem that the business analyst is trying to find a solution for. To define a business need means to identify and define why a change to organizational systems or capabilities is required. enterprise analysis services melbourne

Ways of generating business needs
  • From the top down – this approach is used in order to achieve a strategic goal
  • From the bottom up – this way is used when there is a problem with the current state of a process, function or system
  • From middle management – the business need is generated in order to provide a manager with additional information to make sound decisions or means to perform additional functions to meet business objectives
  • From external drivers – these business needs are driven by customer demand or business competition in the marketplace
Techniques
  • Benchmarking: Understanding what competing organizations and peers are doing allows the organization to remain at a comparable level of service or identify opportunities to increase efficiency.
  • Brainstorming: Generate insights and options during creativity sessions.
  • Business Rules Analysis: Identify changes in the policies that guide the organization towards achieving its goals and objectives.
  • Focus Groups: To identify and discuss problems through guided discussions.
  • Functional Decomposition: Convert business goals into achievable objectives and measures.
  • Root Cause Analysis: Determine the underlying source of a problem.

Step 2 – Assess Capability Gaps

Capability Gaps prevent the enterprise from meeting its business needs and achieving desired outcomes. Assessing these gaps allows to identify new capabilities required by the enterprise to meet the business need.

Techniques:

To assess Capability Gaps our experts use the following techniques:

  • Document Analysis: This method is useful to understand the current state of the enterprise, in as much as that current state is documented. enterprise analysis services melbourne
  • SWOT Analysis: This approach helps identify how current capabilities and limitations (Strengths and Weaknesses) match up against the influencing factors (Opportunities and Threats).

Step 3 – Determine Solution Approach

The solution approach describes the most viable approach that will be taken to create or acquire the new capabilities required to meet the business need. The solution approach needs to be detailed enough to allow for definition of solution scope and prepare the business case.

Techniques:

  • Depending on situation, our experts may use one or several of the following techniques to determine the solution approach:
  • Benchmarking: Identify solution approaches that have proven effective in other organizations.
  • Brainstorming: Used as a method of generating alternatives.
  • Decision Analysis: Rank and select possible solution approaches.
  • Estimation: Develop initial cost comparisons of possible solution approaches.
  • SWOT Analysis: Useful method of comparing possible approaches based on their Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.
  • Feasibility Study: preliminary analysis of solution alternatives or options to determine whether and how each option can provide an expected business benefit to meet the business need.

Step 4 – Define Solution Scope

.The Solution Scope refers to a set of functional and non-functional features and other characteristics of the solution, and it is not focused on the ways the solution is delivered. The purpose of the Solution Scope definition is to conceptualize the recommended solution in enough detail to enable stakeholders to understand which new business capabilities an initiative will deliver.

The Solution Scope includes defining the following areas:
  • The scope of analysis (the organizational unit or process for which requirements are being developed) which provides the context in which the solution is implemented.
  • The capabilities supported by solution components, such as business processes, organizational units, and software applications.
  • The capabilities to be supported by individual releases or iterations.
  • The enabling capabilities that are needed in order to develop the capabilities required to meet the business need.
Techniques
  • Functional Decomposition: this method helps understand the scope of work and break the solution scope into smaller work products or deliverables.
  • Interface Analysis: that approach allows to depict the scope of work required to integrate the new solution into the business and technical environments.
  • Scope Modeling: that technique is used to identify appropriate boundaries for the solution scope.
  • User Stories: these elements are intended to describe stakeholders and the goals the system supports and as such can also be used to define the solution scope.
  • Problem or Vision Statement: this approach states the business need, identifies key stakeholders, and briefly describes the positive impact that meeting the business need will have on those stakeholders.

Step 5 – Define Business Case

The business case describes the justification for starting the project. It outlines the benefits of the solution for the business and describes the cost to develop and operate the solution. By defining the Business Case our experts are able to determine if an organization can justify the investment required to deliver a proposed solution.

Techniques:

To define the Business Case our experts use the following methods:

  • Benchmarking: Understanding what competing organizations and peers are doing allows the organization to remain at a comparable level of service or identify opportunities to increase efficiency.
  • Brainstorming: Generate insights and options during creativity sessions.
  • Business Rules Analysis: Identify changes in the policies that guide the organization towards achieving its goals and objectives.
  • Focus Groups: To identify and discuss problems through guided discussions.
  • Functional Decomposition: Convert business goals into achievable objectives and measures.
  • Root Cause Analysis: Determine the underlying source of a problem.
