Re: Expectation from Business Analyst 


You have got good advice.  The boundaries of BA are not well defined even in IIBA.  Businesses / Managements are not required to follow any standards (they do not know the damage they are doing to their operations). 

I have arrived at Nine Topics and about 25 Sub-topics that a beginner BA would need in the first 9 months to 12 months of his or her job.  Out of them AS IS and TO BE Process Mapping, Requirements Engineering (generation and use of BRD), Use Case Modeling and coordination of related activities are more important / valuable.  Rest of them have to be learnt on the job with specific conceptual inputs.

There are methods and tools to carryout these responsibilities competently.  I have repackaged and modularized the training and guidance programs to help learners and intermediate professionals to work confidently and competently.  email to [email protected] for details.  Your management may also find them useful to streamline their systems and processes.

Re: Expectation from Business Analyst 

  A business analyst is a professional who analyzes an existing system. You have been working in a company and are not satisfied with the job profile. But I would suggest you not to leave the job, try to make your seniors understand our profile and give them a little time.

I think, most companies think a BA is only supposed to be gathering requirements and making BRDs and then pass on the requiremetn to technical team to develop the system. I don't know what should I do because its making me confused. please advise if anyone has any solutions. 

Actually, discovering and documenting requirements is the key aspect of being a Business Analyst. It may not be the only thing a BA does, but it is the one thing that other roles don't do (or even think isn't needed). Being very good at requirements will benefit your organization greatly; in the longer run it shouldn't just be you but your whole organization that should be good at requirements; for advice on how to get there, see
