Business Analysis Approach

Posted on October 5, 2009 by


The Business Analysis Approach document describes how business analysis will be handled for a given project. It sets the stage at the beginning for the manner in which a project’s business analysis will be played out, and it provides broad descriptions that lay the foundation for further refining the necessary business analysis activities through subsequent tasks. The selected methodology may be highly plan-driven, such as Waterfall, or more change-driven, such as Agile. The Business Analysis Approach document may include a description of which organizational process assets will be utilized, and broad descriptions of team roles, project deliverables, and stakeholder communications. This document is developed through the Plan Business Analysis Approach task which is described in the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK®).
