  3. 3. 3 Insert Footer What is Business Analysis? • Business analysis is the practice of enabling change in an enterprise by defining needs and recommending solutions that deliver value to stakeholders. Business analysis enables an enterprise to articulate needs and the rationale for change, and to design and describe solutions that can deliver value. • Business analysis is performed on a variety of initiatives within an enterprise. Initiatives may be strategic, tactical, or operational. Business analysis may be performed within the boundaries of a project or throughout enterprise evolution and continuous improvement. It can be used to understand the current state, to define the future state, and to determine the activities required to move from the current to the future state.

  8. 8. 8 Insert Footer What is Backlog Management? • Backlog Management refers to the planned approach to determine: • what work items should be formally included in the backlog, • how to describe the work items, • how the work items should be tracked, • how the work items should be periodically reviewed and prioritized in relation to all other items in the backlog, • how the work items are eventually selected to be worked on, and • how the work items are eventually removed from the backlog.

  11. 11. 11 Insert Footer Prioritization Method
  12. 12. 12 Insert Footer Strengths • An effective approach to responding to changing stakeholder needs and priorities because the next work items selected from the backlog are always aligned with current stakeholder priorities. • Only items near the top of the backlog are elaborated and estimated in detail; items near the bottom of the backlog reflect lower priorities and receive less attention and effort. • Can be an effective communication vehicle because stakeholders can understand what items are about to be worked on, what items are scheduled farther out, and which ones may not be worked on for some time.
  13. 13. 13 Insert Footer Limitations • Large backlogs may become cumbersome and difficult to manage. • It takes experience to be able to break down the work to be done into enough detail for accurate estimation. • A lack of detail in the items in the backlog can result in lost information over time.
