Business Analyst on a Windows 7 Project - Need Help 
Hi, I just started as a BA on a 1 year project to deploy Windows 7 to the enterprise. I know the process of the windows 7 deployment as my strengths lie in technical more so than analysis. Just looking for input from someone who has went through this type of project and what kind of documents they prepared, or if someone knows of some templates to share. Currently I am creating the following docs and processes: Application Assessment Test Strategy Strategic Decisions Test Scripts and Signoff Any input would certainly be appreciated. Thanks.

 Be worth doing a business requirements spec too. Infrastucture BRS's are small in my experience, but its good to get a clear list of business requirements before going into the project. Make sure they are actual business requirements and not technical requirements. Modelling the deployment process as part of this is probably useful too - again make it a business process map, not a technical map. Shouldn't take you too long and you'll be surprised at what you uncover.

Yeah, I think migration was decided by upper managment, without any real business requirements. I will work on deployment process from a business aspect. Know of any good templates? Thanks.

 I use BPMN. It'll do the job. Not really a template. Just include a couple of sentences about each activity and define your actors in a couple of sentences too. Triggers, etc will be on the diagram.

Still think you should do a set of business requirements too. Specially as it sounds like the business has already made a lot of assumptions. If nothing else, it'll protect you if it all goes belly up. Good luck with it.

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...
