Course BCS Business Analysis

Develop scenarios for a forward-looking organization

The business analyst is the specialist that helps organizations make the right investment decisions. An essential role - as a linking pin between different departments, users and stakeholders - in initiating and facilitating change processes within the organization by identifying, evaluating and translating improvement opportunities into result-oriented options. Furthermore, the business analyst actively contributes to business optimization in improvement processes by providing input to the change team and ensuring that changes are implemented quickly and smoothly. The development or selection of appropriate IT solutions plays an important role in this.
To fulfill this noble task, the business analyst has a number of research and modeling techniques at his or her disposal, including the Business Process Model. This is a step-by-step approach to map the current situation, evaluate the possible scenarios and draw up the requirements for the optimal IT solution.
