The Ultimate Business Analysis Checklist for Your Next Project

A business analysis checklist helps you stay organized while you work through projects. It includes questions that will help you identify problems in your current processes, and suggest improvements for future projects.

Understand the Problem


Before you start writing code, you need to understand what problem you're solving. This means understanding the problem space, identifying stakeholders, and defining requirements.

Identify the Solution


Once you've identified the problem, you'll need to identify the solution. You might think of a solution as something that will solve the problem, but it's also an opportunity to make things better.

Evaluate Alternatives


A good business analyst should evaluate alternatives before deciding on one option. This helps ensure that the chosen solution is the right one. It also gives you more options when it comes to implementation.

Choose the Best Option


If you're looking for an alternative to a particular software package, consider using a free trial version. You'll often find that the trial version includes everything you need to test out the product.

Implement the Plan


Once you've determined what you need to do, implement the plan. This means getting started on the tasks you identified as part of your plan. It's also important to stay focused on completing each task. Don't let yourself get distracted by other projects or tasks.
