Re: Models to Functional Requirements 

Craig:

I agree that expanding ones knowledge base is important.  And I do research and informational interviewing on the latest and greatest requirements engineering techniques.    However, it is clear to me that the real challeges are to throughly understand the unchanging essentials of analysis and to, based upon an understanding of those essentials, in inconjunction with an understanding of the different technqiues,  be able to properly position the different techniques relative to each other.

 Tony,

Am I the only person in the world bored with this partitioning mantra that you keep mentioning. Use cases work, DFD's work, an abacus works, etc. You make a lot of assumptions about the use case approach in your incessant posts about this. A lot of your assumptions aren't true but I can't be bothered arguing them with you.

Give us all a break and change the record. Have something original to say. Its boring!!!

Hi Kimbo and Tony,

I guess I have to say I don't find Tony's arguments boring. I don't agree with all of them but the debate is stimulating. I'm sure Tony doesn't need my backing to continue doing what he does, but it's there just in case! 

All the best to both of you! :-)

Guy

Re: Models to Functional Requirements 

An analyst should use different methodologies, Structured Analysis and Design, RUP, Agile and a few more.

Like ducks, some IMPRINT their methodology and cannot dissociate from it.There is no doubt the older we get the longer we hold onto our old ideas; however, I find it exciting to try new things. We need to stay current.

I started with spagetti code, a bit of assembler, Algol - now theres a fossil, structured programming - gotoless code, and I can write cobol in my sleep; moved from hierachical databases to relational technology. I remember the arguments how terrible relational technology was, yet today there is hardly no other option. yep, and unix will never catch on. Getting from procedural to object thinking was indeed a challenge for me - and I must admit I though I had imprinted the old procedural methods. And, in mid 1970 when computers filled a room someone told me that oneday, we'll have computer the size of a credit card.

I better not continue; but you get my point! Some are reluctant to change!

warm regards,

K

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
Business analysis is used to identify and articulate the need for change in how organizations work, and to facilitate that change. As business analysts, we identify and define the solutions that will maximize the value delivered by an organization to its stakeholders. We look for opportunities for new business models and new ways to work together. ...
