How often do we hear “Create a data model? That’s not BA work,” or “Prototyping? Our developers do that.” Or “Use cases? Why won’t they just go away?!” Many organizations think that business analysis is all about asking questions and documenting the requirements. Although important, those skills are not enough. If we want a complete set of requirements, we need to model them. This presentation provides the key modeling techniques and tips for using them for project success. 


During this presentation we cover the top models business analysis practitioners can use in their “toolkit” for complete requirements analysis. We will review each of the models by category and discuss the importance of modeling to getting the requirements right, emphasizing the relationship between elicitation and modeling. 

This presentation focuses on:

  • The importance of modeling in getting requirements right
  • How models work together to reduce analysis time and provide complete requirements
  • When to use data, process, use case and prototypes models
  • Which models to use during major stages of the project lifecycle
  • The iterative nature of requirements elicitation and modeling 

Praise for this presentation: "Excellent.presentation. Awesome. Clearly differentiated the various models and emphasized the importance of modelling”

“Great overview. Terrific presenter, very knowledgable and experienced. Good to hear some wisdom, not just information.”

“Presenter was awesome and you could tell she had alot of real life experience!
