ANSWER

8 Omega a business change framework conceived to aid organizations in the transformation and improvement of their business processes.  8-Omega addresses 4 key perspectives:

  • Strategy
  • People
  • Process
  • Technology

While 8-Omega considers technology as a key perspective, it also ensures that technology is not overemphasized within business process transformation by considering it within the context of the other 3 perspectives.
Additionally, 8-Omega transitions through 8 stages or lifecycle phases, hence its name.  Each of the 4 key perspectives is considered throughout every stage or lifecycle phase.  These phases are:

  • Discover
  • Analyze
  • Design
  • Integrate
  • Implement
  • Manage
  • Control
  • Improve

For those analysts that are familiar with the 5 DMAIC phases of Six Sigma, these phases will look similar.  That’s not a big surprise since both are frameworks or methodologies for improving and designing better processes.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
