Business Modeling and the Business Analyst

7,535

Published on

This session will be a combination of presentation and demonstration where we will discuss the role of the Business Analyst in Business Process Modeling and the importance of modeling. A demonstration of how modeling tools can assist a BA in their work will be delivered and will include:
- documenting current or future processes
- determining how processes can be optimized and improved using simulation metrics
- using forms in process design and storyboarding
- publishing models to a larger community for feedback.
- how process models can be transformed into the language of IT (UML, BPEL, etc).
We will also demonstrate BPM BlueWorks, which is an online platform for business analysts! It can help accelerate business process improvement at NO COST. Features include dozens of industry-specific strategy, capability and process maps. Private online tools and workspaces to build new business processes and capability to share online workspaces with your colleagues. Check out http://www.bpmblueworks.com

  3. 3. The Essential Business Analyst Role “A business analyst works as a liaison among stakeholders in order to elicit, analyze, communicate, and validate requirements for changes to business processes, policies, and information systems.” IIBA Website 3 IBM Confidential © 2009 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. The Business Analyst have different titles and roles Some of these include: A Business Consultant works at a high level to analyze the stakeholder’s business objectives, recommend and develop solutions to address their business problem A Business Process Analyst is responsible for analyzing and defining business processes both “As Is” and “To Be” A Data Analyst is responsible for logical data model A Business Architect models the whole business in terms of goals, data, process, organization A Requirements Analyst/Specifier works at a lower level to identify, analyze and document the business requirements and deliver work products through the project life cycle A Systems Analyst translates the business requirements into System/Functional requirements, which are then passed to Application Developers A Management Consultant assists stakeholders with understanding their strategic goals and how best to accomplish them. 4 IBM Confidential © 2009 IBM Corporation

  6. 6. Business Analysts play key role in BPM Dynamic Business Processes end-to-end BPM lifecycle capabilities to empower the business to adapt & respond dynamically to change Discover & Design Process by collaborating to Automation to capture, model, and increase operating analyze key processes to efficiency and optimize Transform Insight costs by streamlining link strategy to process into Action by business processes. execution. monitoring and Saved $250,000 per analyzing business Reduced processing month processes and events for time by 70% effective decisions. Reduced exception backlogs by 80% 6 IBM Confidential © 2009 IBM Corporation
  7. 7. Discovery helps avoid critical problem areas Wrong project scope Changes in process that don’t deliver ROI Outcomes are not the expected or required ones Poor communication of business intent and requirements Lack of collaboration across Business and IT Lack of coordination between departments and organizational boundaries Discovery reduces risk of process change pitfalls: Resistance Misuse Nonuse Inertia Wrong Technology 7 IBM Confidential © 2009 IBM Corporation
  8. 8. Discovery addresses process pain points Waste, errors, inefficiencies, missing measures, wrong project scope I try for months to get an initiative off the ground, and then it is shut down because ‘it doesn’t fit the strategy.’ Why didn’t anyone tell me that in the beginning? Process aren’t well Bottlenecks prevent efficiency, Key Performance documented or even exceptions and errors are costly, Indicators are not understood slow to fix defined or managed Unable to test and evaluate Process change is not Limited visibility into process model alternatives planned in line with current performance, before deployment business strategy real-time results 8 IBM Confidential © 2009 IBM Corporation
  9. 9. Discovery enables process innovation Process innovation relies on: Process discovery & design enablers: Business Strategy Strategy maps Phasing, scoping, preparation Organization Capability maps Number of groups affected Organization maps Importance of process Business-led collaborative features Group autonomy People IBM BPM BlueWorks Technology adoption discretion Innov8 BPM education Technological sophistication Interactive process design Process & Technology Complexity, novelty Role-based business spaces Prebuilt industry content 9 IBM Confidential © 2009 IBM Corporation
