Re: Requirements Role-play: Bank ATM Example 

Hi Adrian,

 

I am a Sr Business Analyst (done this for alost 4 yrs now) working for citi. I feel from the start an important phase was missed(which will help in grouping functionalities). There was no discussion as to create an AS and TO process models. This would then in turn result in multiple use cases for each of the process. Just my cents worth.

 

regards,

Ashiwn

Dear Ashwin,

You're correct: we did not do an AS-IS vs. TO-BE analysis.  We wanted to keep the role play simple.  Also, in real life, we don't always get the luxury of time to be able to create every single type of artifact and model which we might want.

Part of the value that a senior business analyst brings to the table is the ability to decide when an artifact is needed and when it's not.  While our job is to analyze, to much analysis is not good either.  There are many business analysts who, if allowed to, would never complete the task at hand but instead continue to create models after models and documentation after documentation.

We work for real companies and on projects with real budgets so we need to always think about doing "just enough" (no more, no less) in order to achieve the goals of a given project.

Hope this helps!

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done. You’ve pulled out your laptop, your textbook, and your notes, and four different highlighters. After five minutes of reading your textbook, you start zoning out and thinking about puppies. Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
