ANSWER

Force-field analysis is a technique for assessing an organization’s readiness for change, by identifying and evaluating the forces that support a proposed change and the forces that oppose it. The proposed change is pictured in the centre of a force-field diagram, with supporting forces and opposing forces listed on opposite sides. The strength or influence of each force is estimated, usually on a scale from 1 to 5.

The ‘force field’ can then be analyzed to determine if there is sufficient support to move the change forward, and to identify ways in which the supporting forces can be strengthened and / or opposing forces weakened.

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
