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

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...

Then, you go on Tumblr and look at cut...
