The presentation is focused on the use of templates by Business Analysts. Courses are often centred around training BA’s on how to complete a template such as Business Case, BRD and Functional Specifications to name a few. Don’t get me wrong, templates are extremely useful in guiding a BA to ensure the right content and correct level of granularity exist. However, let’s not forget who we
are creating the documents for, our business people.
Templates are one of the reasons that companies are exploring methodologies such as SCRUM and KANBAN to get away from content-heavy templates. The talk, therefore, offers new perspectives, shifting the focus on the tools and techniques and less on the templates. Shifting from rigid document creation to value-added documents for our business.
* Business Analysts, not document writers
* Fit for purpose, not bogged down BRD’s
* Using templates as guidelines and not the holy grail
