Typical Activities Expected in the Role
Scope the system/solution. During the initial phase of a project, the BA may be the only "development staff" assigned to the project. At this point they will work with key project stakeholders to formulate and communicate the business vision, to envision initial requirements, and to scope the project. Their fundamental goal is to get the project focused early by translating the initial high-level vision into something realistic. They may also help to identify potential areas of automation and even to aid in reengineering the underlying business process.
Translate business needs. A major responsibility of the BA is to work with project stakeholders to translate their requirements into something that developers can understand as well as to translate the resulting questions that the developers have into something the stakeholders can understand. This is an iterative process throughout the project. An important part of this is to the distillation of the differing messages of various project stakeholders into a single, consistent vision. This task often includes significant negotiation and political maneuvering. In this respect a BA will act as a knowledge integrator. Furthermore, the BA often find themselves spending significant time in meetings, thereby saving the rest of the development team from this inefficient use of their time.
Translate technical issues. The BA will also explain technical/architectural complexities to project stakeholders, such as why your HTML-based application can't have as slick of a user interface as a Visual Basic application. BA will also explain what the developers are doing and why they need to do it, including explanations of the basis of schedules and estimates.
Model and document. The BA will work with project stakeholders to identify, model, and then document their requirements and business domain details. Key requirements will be documented and updated by the BA as the project scope evolves.
Act as a communication broker. The BA will typically have interface with the an subject matter expert on the project to help development teams find the answers or clarifications on data/functionality related queries.
Test and validation. The BA will work with project stakeholders to validate their requirements and analysis models via techniques such as reviews, walkthroughs, and role play. The BA will often aid in writing user acceptance test (UAT) cases and will be a liaison between project stakeholders and testing organization during UAT. Testing functionality and data quality checks across the application is a key role played by the BA.
