As BAs, we are used to working in the field of change. Yet, whilst we often look at radically changing the way that other teams work, how often do we look introspectively and ask how our own practices might need to adapt? With an uncertain business environment, being able to adapt our practices to assist in the delivery of valuable change is more important than ever.
Yet there are so many tools and techniques to choose from. How is a practitioner to know what is “best” for the situation? Is there even such thing as “best practice” any more? And how on earth do we make sure that all of our requirements artefacts fit together? Come along to this session for some practical tips!
During this informal and unscripted session, Alec and Adrian will share views and experiences on topic such as:
• Trends: What trends should BAs be keeping on their radar? Which are likely to be more of a distraction?
• Shifting Business Context: The importance of context in choosing analysis approaches and techniques.
• Requirements Architecture: Tips for ensuring that there are clear relationships between different requirements artefacts.
• “Best Practice”: When and where is analysis “best practice” appropriate?
• What DOESN’T work anymore (and maybe never did)
• ….And much more!
