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”?

Use cases and user stories are both excellent techniques for understanding what a user needs from a product.

While both have a similar purpose, use cases and user stories are not meant to be used interchangeably. That is why it’s important for a business analyst to understand the difference.

The older of the two techniques is the use case, which captures usage scenarios.

In other words, a use case documents how an individual uses a product to accomplish something of value. This technique works well for projects where functional requirements and usage scenarios must be – and can be – specified upfront. However, what if you can’t know the requirements upfront?

In a user story, the user and what they need the product to accomplish is also specified, but in contrast to use cases, at a much higher level.

Recognizing which technique is best suited to your situation is the key.

In this webinar you will learn to:

  • Determine when to apply use cases and user stories to define stakeholder requirements.
  • Elaborate use cases through scenarios.
  • Augment use cases and user stories with diagrams and visuals for better communication

Presenter: Dr. Martin Schedlbauer (LinkedIn profile) has been leading and authoring seminars and workshops in business analysis, software engineering, and project management for over twenty years.

Improving organizational Requirements Maturity is a strategic approach to improving project success and aligning IT with the business to meet objectives on time and on budget consistently.

According to the recent IAG BA Benchmark study of 437 large and medium organizations in North America and Europe, the organizational level of Requirements Maturity is directly proportional to the likelihood of project success.

Companies invest millions of dollars in recruitment, hiring, and training of Business Analysts every year without a detailed understanding of the role and how to integrate into the enterprise; the average Requirements Maturity level in North America is only 1.8 on a scale of 1-5, and only a fraction of those measured qualified at a level 3 or higher.

For individual and organizations that are serious about improving in a consistent and measurable way, IAG will explain the key concepts and results you can expect by improving organizational Requirements Maturity

Learning Objectives:

  1. The impact of requirements maturity on overall business and project objectives.
  2. The Requirements Maturity Model.
  3. A high level roadmap to improving requirements capabilities.
