business analysis ( task 6)

I’m trying to study for my Business course and I need some help to understand this question.

As a Business Analyst, requirements analysis and design are part of our everyday life. So what does that mean?

Now it’s time to do a strategic analysis on your own project.

  • Your personal project can have any kind of future that you want it to be. Based on the previous changes from the elicitation process, do a strategic analysis on your own personal project.
  • Assess the current state
  • Define what you believe is the future
  • Assess any risks
  • Provide the gap between the AS-IS and TO-BE states

  • Go to Lynda.com and watch Validating Requirements and Managing Requirements from the Developing Project Requirements course.
  • Go to Lynda.com and watch Validating and Controlling Your Requirements During Project Execution of the Business Analysis Fundamentals course.
  • Watch the video Requirement Analysis.
  • Watch the video Requirements Management Best Practices.
  • Pick a social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest, Instagram, etc.) to research and be prepared to discuss how requirement analysis and design affect your chosen social media daily.

  • Watch the movie “Up in the Air” starring George Clooney. Pay close attention to the role of Natalie as a Business Analyst. As you are watching the movie, jot down your answers to the following questions:
  • In your opinion, is she a good or bad Business Analyst?
  • What types of business analysis tasks does she do to warrant us looking at her as a Business Analyst?
  • What requirements is she gathering?
  • How does she verify and validate these requirements?
  • What is her recommended solutions?
  • Do you agree with her solutions? If not, what would you have done differently?
  • There are multiple free sites to choose from:
  • Watch option 1
  • Watch option 2
  • Watch option 3

For your task, submit the deliverable for your personal project. Include the following:

  • Analyze the current state in regards to the requirements you analyzed for the change request to your project as of today.
  • Define what the future state will be based on the business needs, goals and objectives of the project.
  • Assess any risks and recommend any actions to alleviate those risks if needed.
  • Describe the current gap between the current and future state and how the project will achieve the future state.
