Getting started with business analysis

Business analysis is a research discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems.  Solutions often include a software-systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organisational change or strategic planning and policy development.

Most small businesses skip this valuable process entirely and miss out on opportunities for growth and risk identification.

Ultimately business analysis achieves the following outcomes:

  • Creating solutions
  • Give enough tools for robust project management and service delivery
  • Improve efficiency and reduce waste
  • Provide essential documentation
