Re: Gap Analysis 

Asking for a "vision" ain't going to work because they don't have one.   I repeat THEY DON'T HAVE ONE.    No one to date as done a systematic evaluation of manual and automated processes/tasks - and especially how they all interrelate - so they don't understand what they need.

They need you to take the lead.     Your first step is to demystify what is meant by "gap analysis".   A process/task is defined by its inputs and outputs.   And outputs from one process/task is input to another.    Understanding, systematically, all the inputs and outputs is your "gap analysis".

So, start at the highest level - the vision level - and decompose downwards  - focusing at all times not so much on standalone processes/tasks but how the processes/tasks interrelate.

On a recent Agile training course, the instructor opened the session by saying “Agile without a plan is just chaos!” I would like to propose that Agile without effective Architecture will eventually lead to chaos, particularly if organisations try to scale their Agile practices without some form of guiding framework. The fundamental r...

Business analysts typically gather and interpret data from many areas within an organization, finding solutions to business problems and improving business processes with all that data. A business analyst may measure and improve on such disparate things as warehouse efficiency and cloud software implementation. A marketing analyst, on the other...
