Business Analysis contributes to better business outcomes.

Checking practices in your organization against Lean principles will reveal waste they may contain and allow improvements and efficiency gains.

Business Analysis helps developing products and services that delight customers. Do you know how efficient is this process in your organisation? BA Coach created a simple, yet very effective business analysis process assessment that helps you determine the process’ strong and weak points. This method is based on Lean principles. It means it focuses on identifying all non-value-added activities (waste) and permanently eliminating them.  During the assessment we address the following areas:

  • process, procedures and techniques
  • business analysis artifacts
  • tools
  • skills and competencies of the business analysis team
  • organizational support

A part of this waste lies in requirements. Why produce requirements for something that will never be used? Does this situation sound familiar? Check different forms of waste that could lie in your business analysis process.
