Validating business requirements
Another thing I like to do is to display the validation error message on the form in an otherwise hidden field: The problem with our last solution is that if the user saves a partially filled form, and picks it up at a later time, that error message that popped up is long gone, and the only indication that there is something wrong with the form is the modified field color.So, having a text field contain that error message might be a good idea.Some stakeholders might demand features that are out of the project scope and the business analyst should highlight any such requirements.These requirements should be brought to note of the other stakeholders and discussed whether they should be discarded or could be part of future phases of the project.For numeric fields, there is a convenient way to validate a value range, but we want to select to run a custom validation script.After the “Edit” button is clicked, a new window will open that allows us to edit the new script: This script also includes a check for an empty string, so that the user can wipe out a wrong string and start from scratch.In that case, the previous value of the field is restored, and the user has to enter the data again.
Since there are many audiences of the documents prepared by the business analyst belonging to different competencies in an organization (technical, business, etc.), excessive care should be taken while documenting requirements.
Activities are better managed if you plan how to achieve them and thus the ‘Business Analysis plan’ contains the steps that will be followed to conduct the process of business analysis.
The plan encompass: The above things, if properly planned, documented and followed will extensively contribute to the overall success of the project.
Project scope defines what all is expected to be achieved by the project so as to be considered complete and successful.
It includes: A business analyst works closely with the project manager and the key stakeholders of the project to define the project scope statement and the project scope.
