Part 3: Analyzing Business Requirements and Constraints

Abstract: This WEBinar series shows a 6-step process for gathering, analyzing, and checking business requirements in a more defect free way.  

This WEBinar outlines the steps that the business analyst would use with interactions among users and developers.

Part 3: Analyzing Business Requirements and Constraints

  • Parts 2 and 3 of the model
  • Analyzes business requirements
  • Delivers preliminary statement of requirements
  • Involves business analysts, users, and developers
  • Confirms structural attributes of software 
    (quality-"ilities": functionality, usability, reliability, supportability, etc.) with the user 
  • Places the "User Concerns List" here in the process to capture user concerns earlier rather than later
  • Applies a unique RPIPR model for interviewing…
    First build trust…then, gather requirements: Rapport, Process, Interview, Process, Rapport 
  • Allows the BA to understand true needs to avoid biasing needs with technology 

The deliverable and essential tools of this crucial step in requirements gathering including those as shown in the following chart, lay the foundation for the success or failure of project plans.

This WEBinar will go deeper into the strategies and tools used in Steps 2 and 3 of the High Quality Requirements Model. 

According to a survey by Compuware-RQNG, only 27 percent of BAs think their organizations have adopted tools to make them more effective. 

Step Phase Deliverable Tools
2 Analyze Business Requirements Preliminary Statement of Requirements Modeling/Prototyping
Quality Survey 
System Characteristics
User Concerns List
Interview Questionnaire
3 Analyze Implementation Requirements (Constraints) Quality Criteria
Control Analysis 
Implementation Reqts List

The High Quality Requirements Model is a six step requirements gathering process useful for end users, business analysts, and developers.  By means of its structure, it automatically assures mission-based, needs-based requirements that are not solutions-driven

The BA as facilitator. What is unique about this WEBinar is that it will explain a process that emphasizes the role of the BA as a facilitator. Are you a hybrid creature expected  to move with ease between the worlds of business and technology?  

This WEBinar series describes how to prevent requirements defects and how to gather those requirements more accurately.  Complete information on the full course on requirements can be found here
