Problem solving starts with good problem identification and definition. Many business analysts are not included in the problem identification phase of a project and are brought in to deliver solutions. NO matter the stage at which a BA joins a project some problem analysis should be performed. This puts the analyst in a position of knowledge and understanding of the project purpose.
Familiarity with the problem-solving process is key; understanding the relationship between analysis and the problem-solving process helps analysts to see just how critical the problem analysis phase is.
A view on how to tackle problem analysis is presented, together with some guidance on how to document impactful and meaningful problem statements. The relationships between problems, objectives and benefits is highlighted to enable understanding of the importance of the early, accurate definition of problems.
Attendees will learn:
How a good understanding of the generic problem-solving process is key to business analysts performing their work efficiently.
How an approach to problem analysis creates in-depth and valuable analysis that ultimately leads to correct solution implementations
Why problem statements are a vital foundation to all further analysis and set the context for project effort.
