Other references such as IIBA’s BABOK explain standard practices or provide a knowledgebase of terms and processes, but none provide a step-by-step how-to guide on all aspects of business analysis that project teams can use to drive project success.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
A comprehensive methodology that provides project teams with everything they need to know to successfully perform superior business analysis is now available. With the methodology, solution teams can ensure they implement effective, competent, and thorough business analysis in any project, no matter the type, and avoid costly missteps, oversights, or budget overruns.
The methodology created by Enfocus Solutions Inc. includes two perspectives: business analysis and stakeholder. The perspective now available, the “Business Analysis Perspective,” provides a conceptual overview of the methodology from the point-of-view of any individual performing business analysis activities. The “Stakeholder Perspective,” to be released next week, provides guidance to stakeholders and solution team members responsible for stakeholder engagement.
Developed by a multi-disciplinary team of project managers, business analysts, accountants, and IT leaders at Enfocus Solutions Inc., the “Business Analysis Perspective” walks business analysts and solution team members through the nine task groups of business analysis discussed in Requirements Excellence Framework™, the backbone of Enfocus Requirements Suite™. These task groups are imperative to delivering project success and business value. Each task in the methodology can be fully automated using Enfocus Solutions Inc.’s powerful software Enfocus Requirements Suite™.
Enfocus Solutions’ CEO John Parker said the methodology provides a guide for performing business analysis that has not been available in the industry.
“Other references such as IIBA’s BABOK explain standard practices or provide a knowledgebase of terms and processes, but none provide a step-by-step how-to guide on all aspects of business analysis that project teams can use to drive project success and business value,” he said. “That’s what this methodology delivers.”
Additional benefits of the “Business Analysis Perspective” include:
- Thorough instructions to perform the entire business analysis process from solution analysis to portfolio and knowledge management, including requirements management and stakeholder engagement
- Valuable information including techniques, checklists, and guides that correspond to and complement Enfocus Requirements Suite™
- Proven content based entirely on research, best practices, and industry standards
- Standardized terminology and process classifications of BABOK, PMBOK, CBOK, and APQC
- Applicable to all types of projects, big or small, Agile or waterfall
- Addresses all aspects of business comprehensively – strategy, people, processes, and technology. The methodology ensures solution teams never overlook one area while focusing on another.
Enfocus Requirements Suite™ automates most of the activities described in the methodology. Most simple requirement tools on the market today address only some aspect of requirements development or requirements management and ignore many vital business analysis functions, said Parker.
“Enfocus Requirement Suite™, which is backed by this superior methodology, helps prevent teams from missing something important in business analysis and making costly mistakes,” said Parker.
By using the methodology described in both the “Business Analysis Perspective” and “Stakeholder Perspective”– and automating both with Enfocus Requirements Suite™ – enterprises can improve their business analysis across the board. The Business Analysis Perspective shows teams how to deliver value – excellent requirements and improved outcomes. The “Stakeholder Perspective” helps end users, clients, employees, and all stakeholders ensure they get that value – improved involvement, greater satisfaction with results.
The Business Analysis Perspective, along with more information on Enfocus Requirements Suite™, is available at http://www.EnfocusSolutions.com. Enfocus Requirements Suite™ is the only requirements management tool that comes fully loaded with tools, training, and templates for better business analysis.
