A business analyst (BA) is developing the requirements for an inventory management system. Some current accounting processes are automated but other departments like purchasing, marketing, sales and distribution departments work in isolation and have a manual process. They extensively use spreadsheets to maintain the transactions and at the end of the day the department managers manually verify and reconcile transactions before supplying the information to the accounting department. In order to verify and validate the elicited requirements, the BA will need to prepare a:
A business analyst (BA) is informing stakeholders about the importance of quality when eliciting requirements. What characteristic describes a quality requirement?
When a requirement is considered consistent, it really means that it aligns with the identified needs of the stakeholders. It also means that the requirements do not contradict any other requirements.
A business analyst (BA) is preparing for elicitation activities and needs to determine who should be consulted, who should participate, and what roles each should fill. Which elicitation technique should the BA use?
Stakeholder list is used to determine who should be consulted while preparing for the elicitation, who should participate in the event, and the appropriate roles for each stakeholder.
As a candidate for CCBA, you should be able to recognize the activities associated with each knowledge area. Which of the following are business analysis planning and monitoring activities? Each correct answer represents a complete solution. Choose all that apply.
The most common business analysis planning and monitoring activities are. identifying stakeholders, defining roles and responsibilities of stakeholders in the business analysis effort, developing estimates for business analysis tasks, planning how the business analyst will communicate with stakeholders, planning how requirements will be approached, traced, and prioritized, determining the deliverables that the business analyst will produce, defining and determining business analysis processes, and determining the metrics that will be used for monitoring business analysis work.
Answer, A is incorrect. Job shadowing is an elicitation process that is a part of job observation. In this process, the observer is required to keep an eye on those workers whose work routine is down and who are unable to explain their work. The observer has to understand their work process for better assessment of the modifications of the work required. The following are the approaches for this technique:
Passive/Invisible. In this approach, the observer does not ask questions from the user about his work while the user is working.
Active/Visible. In this approach, the observer does ask questions from the user about his work even when the user is working.
Ralph is a business analyst for his organization and he's using the plan-driven approach for business analysis. Ralph has captured the requirements of the project, but what must happen before he can begin capturing and defining the requirements at a deeper level of detail?
Before Ralph can begin defining the requirements at a deeper level, the initial requirements must be formally approved by the relevant stakeholders.
Answer, B is incorrect. The initial requirements do not need to undergo a feasibility study at this time.
Answer, D is incorrect. The Delphi Technique is useful to gain consensus on requirements, but it's not a mandatory activity or needed (usually) with the initial requirements.
Answer, A is incorrect. The requirements don't need to be tested for time, cost, quality, and risk at this time.
