Methodology is a toolkit not a process – Choose wisely

Methodologies contains many tools and techniques, such as, process, data , use case and class modelling, sequence diagramming and state transition diagramming, prototyping and report templates.

Not all these tools have to be used for every project.

So choose wisely and create your own fast path routes for completing different types of projects by preparing your own Business Analysis Project Planning Map. Build on your experiences and fine tune your product each time you undertake a new assignment.
