Webinar: Diagrams and Models for Business Analysts

Statistics:Article Rating (4717 Views) (0 Comments)


The major part of the business analyst’s occupation is in creating diagrams and models of all sorts. While a requirements document or any other rendering of requirements, for many business analysts their primary output, is actually a model of the solution to be delivered, when we think or talk about diagrams and models we usually think of charts and drawings. Some of us love the idea of drying squares and arrows and turning human business processes into diagrams on the whiteboard.

Some of us hate the very idea of drawing anything, much less a diagram or model. And those of us involved with agile see the diagrams and models being thrown up on the whiteboard as part of a developer swarm and then erased shortly thereafter. And those of us working in the more traditional environment painstakingly create exact and accurate replications of business processes and proposed solutions which are then added to dozens or hundreds of others created in the past 20 years. So the question the business analyst has to ask is “models, what are they good for?” Or perhaps, “are there any models that are worthwhile spending my time on even if not required by the SDLC?” This webinar will try to answer those questions as well as provide an overview and lexicon of the models that business analysts generally use for better or worse.
