Let's look at some common definitions and resources that define a Business Analyst (BA). Then we'll cover roles, competencies and diversity that exists in the real world. Finally I'll put it all together to try to describe what makes the best BAs and how they add value to the Business they Analyze.
A great topic came up in the IIBA group, Q: ❝What's your trick to creating a complete requirements package?❞. Here was the answer... A: ❝I find functional decomposition (start with high level objectives and basically making a tree hierarchy down to solution level requirements) is one really good starting method.❞ ...This was an Aha! moment for me. I found we can use this approach to elicit the right requirements, identify gaps, and tie to Agile. We can do this all with the business actively involved. That way, you have no surprises when it comes to sign-off.
This post describes what I have learned about process mapping and resulting business value using IBM's Blueworks Live. 1. First I discuss the need to document processes. 2.

Finally, I show how you can not only add value properties, but make them jump out with colors.
