Re: Essential skills to excel as a Business Analyst 

Priyanka,

I think you would benefit by reading some of the older DFD text books about. Now Ed Yourdon, being the gentleman that he is, has made one of his older and still relevant books available on the internet in a Wiki. see http://www.yourdon.com/strucanalysis/index.html

When you read this text, you'll understand what was meant by things like "the essential data flows - that are technology independent"

There was a UK training company that had a tutorial on their website about using DFDs and Use-cases, if and when I remeber, I'll post it.

 

warm regards,

K

Introduction   When I was introduced to scrum, the burndown chart was a tool that was highly emphasised however I feel the purpose has changed from it being a tool to predict (to a certain level) timescales for delivery to a tool that measures a team’s productivity…..in other words, the focus is on the number of points cleared w...
