Defining and validating transformations of uml models
Most NYS State Agencies are working to better recognize the role and/or need for Business Analysts and continue to refine these position definitions.
State Agency staff are working with the NYS Civil Services to create job specifications and tests that will better support the NYS goals for BA workforce improvement.
I'd also like to thank ITS Leadership and also the NYS Forum for recognizing the importance of business analysts in IT projects; your support for our work in invaluable.
As a PM Director, I find that projects with a dedicated BA are far more efficient and effective than those without one.
Solutions may be IT related, non-IT related, or some combination of the two.It will also prevent your IP address from being publicly exposed while you make edits.We look forward to your collaborative contributions to define a common approach for Business Analysis work in New York State! According to the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), a business analyst works as a liaison among stakeholders in order to understand the structure, policies, and operations of an organization, and to recommend solutions that enable the organization to achieve its goals.On some projects one person is required to act as both the PM and the BA. For the individual, the challenge is to be aware of the overarching project management activities and manage the balance between those activities and the BA activities that must also occur.For larger projects playing both roles puts the project at risk for either rushing requirements elicitation and analysis tasks and missing important requirements or spending too much time working on requirements and jeopardizing the project schedule.
