It includes determining whether and how requirements are changed, which stakeholders need to approve (instead of the actual approval of requirements), as well as who will be consulted on, or informed of changes, etc. It also includes the approach to requirements traceability and determining which requirements attributes we will 23
15 capture. Plan, monitor and Report on Business Analysis Performance Determine which metrics will be used to measure the work performed by the business analysts. It includes how we track, assess, and report on the quality of the work performed by business analysts and take steps to correct any problems that may crop up. If problems are identified, determine appropriate corrective action (which may feed into the development of future plans on this or other projects). 24
16 BABOK Knowledge Area : Enterprise Analysis Description Purpose Enterprise Analysis describes how we take a business need, refine and clarify the definition of that need, and define a solution scope that can feasibly be implemented by the business.

19 BABOK Knowledge Area : Requirements Analysis Description Purpose Requirements Analysis describes how we progressively elaborate the solution definition in order to enable the project team to design and build a solution that will meet the needs of the business and stakeholders. In order to do that, we have to analyze the stated requirements of our stakeholders to ensure that they are correct, assess the current state of the business to identify and recommend improvements, and ultimately verify and validate the results. Progressively elaborate stated requirements to sufficiently level of detail that accurately defines the business need within specified scope Competency Purpose Competency Covered in : Organize Requirements Structure and organize a set of requirements into logical sets. The organization may be based on defining multiple levels of requirements, packaging related functions together, and so forth.

These should be captured and assessed but are not properly requirements. BUSA 1302 Business Re engineering Verify Requirements Determine that the requirements are correctly and completely defined. Validate Requirements Validate that a requirement will satisfy a business need. 29
21 BABOK Knowledge Area : Solution Assessment and Validation Description Purpose Solution Assessment and Validation describes how to assess proposed solutions to determine which solution best fits the business need, identify gaps and shortcomings in solutions, and determine necessary workarounds or changes to the solution.

Access solutions to ensure that strategic goals are met and requirements are satisfied. Competency Purpose Competency Covered in : Assess Requirements Coverage Determine how well possible options for solution designs will meet the requirements.

COMP 1066 Business Systems Design Allocate Requirements Allocate requirements among releases and/or solutions COMP 1066 Business Systems Design components. This task ensures that the possible release options are designed in a way to maximize the possible business value given the options and alternatives generated by the design team. Allocate requirements to hardware, software, manual COMP 1066 Business Systems Design procedures, etc. Recommend the release/delivery strategy BUSA 1052 Business Case Analysis Understand trade offs between different implementation approaches COMP 1066 Business Systems Design Determine Organizational Readiness Determine organizational readiness to effectively operate the new solution 30

Compare actual vs. expected costs and benefits. BUSA 1052 Business Case Analysis 31
23 BABOK Knowledge Area : Requirements Management and Description Purpose Requirements Management and describes how we manage conflicts, issues and changes and ensure that stakeholders and the project team remain in agreement on the solution scope. Depending on the complexity and methodology of the project, this may require that we manage formal approvals, baseline and track different versions of requirements documents, and trace requirements from origination to implementation. Recognize that communication takes places throughout all knowledge areas and is important for managing requirements Manage Solution and Requirements Scope Competency Purpose Competency Covered in : Baseline and manage changes to business case, solution and requirements MGMT 1161 Management Principles 1 Approve requirements (according to the BUSA 1044 Business Analyst : Intro approval authority stated in the Requirements Management Plan) Baseline requirements Manage formal and informal change control on BUSA 1017 Business Analyst Facilitation requirements Control multiple versions of requirements work PROJ 1030 Project Management Fundamentals products Manage requirements conflicts and issues MGMT 1161 Management Principles 1 Manage Requirements Traceability Trace requirements (update and maintaining relationships between requirements components) Perform impact analysis when changes are requested and supply this information to the change control process (in previous task) 32
