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

  • Watch the video Requirement Analysis.
  • Watch the video Requirements Management Best Practices.
  • Pick a social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, 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?
