Task driven business analysis measures success on the completion of tasks while value driven business analysis measures value delivered rather than the number of completed tasks.

In value driven business analysis some tasks may never be completed, finalised and officially signed off.

Task Driven vs Value Driven, businesses can take advantage of value driven approaches.

Understanding an organisation’s strategic direction and key value streams enables the development and delivery of portfolios of work that deliver products and services to customers more efficiently.

These business analysis techniques can be used to trace the delivery of programs, projects and BAU to help uncover the necessary areas of change to deliver the desired outcomes and value.

  • What is task driven vs value driven business analysis?
  • How do you move from task driven to value driven business analysis?
  • How much is “just enough business analysis”?

In this Introduction to Business Analysis demo session, you will learn the fundamentals of business analysis discipline, role of a business analyst, how our training program is structured and most importantly how Requirements Wizard can help you transform your career into a successful business analyst role.

In today’s competitive environment, business analyst’s role is no longer of simply ‘A bridge between Business and IT’. T

here has been a paradigm shift in the role of business analyst in recent years.

In today’s resource scare environment, customers expect business analyst to have knowledge and skills to conduct enterprise analysis, perform end-to-end business processes re-engineering, identify bottlenecks in their value streams, and most importantly develop solutions that would solve their problems and integrate their vision-strategy-technology towards a common organizational goal.

Requirements elicitation and documenting them is a very small subset of a modern day business analyst’s role.

This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst.

In addition to the business analysis skills, project management skills are equally vital for a business analyst. Since the natural career trajectory of a business analyst curve towards project management discipline, this course has included key topics of project management as well, which in a ‘real-world’ scenario, any experienced business analyst must be familiar with.

Note: This session is designed for any individual with IT/Non-IT background who aspires to make their career in business analysis discipline.
