Software supervisors sometimes believe that every experienced developer can examine clients and write claims without any preparation, support, or coaching. This is not a fair opinion. Whatever be the team workers, business analysis has its skillset and body of knowledge. A business analyst provides a unique ability that can differentiate between a project that succeeds and one that struggles. Each software company should acquire a staff of qualified and skilled BA.
Create a Collaborative Environment - Software projects sometimes experience strained relationships between customers, developers, managers, and marketing. The parties cannot rely on each other motivations or appreciate each other needs and constraints. A success result means that buyers adore the product, the company gains its business goals, and team affiliates are satisfied with the work they do.
Bridge the Communication Gap - We all think in the realm of our experience and knowledge. Take time to learn about your customer associates and understand how they like to communicate. Watch for volatile assumptions that underlie users input or your thinking. If they are still valid and to understand their implications, challenge those assumptions.
Color Inside the Lines - Many project scopes creep, sometimes grow, sometimes spiral out of control. But many of those projects have not clearly defined their intended scope, the boundary between what and what is. It is also hard to know if you are enduring profits if the stakeholders never allowed - and documented - the extent in the first place.
Ask Revealing Questions - Analysts can often get out of the box that limits the creativity of those who are too close to the problem. However, watch out for gold plating. It is the temptation to add additional functionality that just seems cool or somehow necessary. If you do not know how the functionality will be used or why it is there, then you probably do not need it.
Conclusion - Requirements are not just around waiting for someone to pick you up. At its best, requirements exist in the minds of users, visionaries, and developers. The BA job is to gently eject them, massage them into a useful form, and communicate them to the stakeholders of the project for action.
