Abstract:

Beyond Requirements shows you how to employ business analysis practices and techniques to clarify problems, identify the best available solutions, and implement them. Going far beyond conventional business analysis, it draws upon disciplines ranging from agile methods to entrepreneurship -- helping you dramatically improve your value as a business problem-solver whether you carry the title of analyst or not. Pioneering business analysis mentor, consultant, and trainer Kent J. McDonald focuses on when showing how to apply each available tool - and when to integrate multiple tools to achieve even better results. McDonald shares new insights into both problem spaces and potential solutions, and helps analysts bring new agility to the evolving challenges of requirements development. Coverage includes: * Staying focused on the guiding principles of value, collaboration, iteration, simplicity, context, and adaptability * Making the most of stakeholder analysis, requirements modeling, and solution validation techniques * Integrating newer techniques ranging form value-add activities to strategic barrier analysis * Understanding the full problem lifecycle, including 3Cs (cost, competitors, customers); strategy formulation and implementation; and progress measurement.
