PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT: Business analysis is the process of studying a business or any other organization to identify business opportunities / problem areas and suggest potential solutions. A wide range of people with various titles, roles and responsibilities actually apply business analysis techniques within an organization. There are three fundamentally different flavors or levels of business analysis: 1. Strategic Business Analysis (aka Enterprise Analysis) (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/strategic-business-analysis/ ) 2. Tactical Business Analysis (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/tactical-business-analysis/) 3. Operational Business Analysis (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/operational-business-analysis/Operational Business Analysis) Strategic Business Analysis is the study of business visions, goals, objectives, and strategies of an organization or an organizational unit to identify the desired future. It encompasses the analysis of existing organizational structure, policies, politics, problems, opportunities, and application architecture to build a business case for change. This analysis employs business analysis techniques such as Variance Analysis, Feasibility Analysis, Force Field Analysis, Decision Analysis, and Key Performance Indicators to support senior management in the decision-making process. The primary outcome of this work is a set of defined, prioritized projects and initiatives that the organization will undertake to create the desired future. If the initiative includes the development of software using an Agile Software Development Methodology (SDM) (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/business-analysis-agile-methodologies/), strategic business analysis techniques identify themes and/or epics, and initiate a product backlog. Tactical Business Analysis is at the project or initiative level to flush out the details of the proposed solution and to ensure that it meets the needs of the business community. Commonly used business analysis techniques at this level include Stakeholder Identification (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/how-to-identify-stakeholders-it-projects/), Interviewing (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/requirements-elicitation-gathering-business-stakeholder-it-requirements/), Facilitation (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/how-to-facilitate-requirements-gathering-workshops/), Baselining, Coverage Matrices, MoSCoW Analysis (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/requirements-prioritization-two-simple-techniques/), Benchmarking, Business Rules Analysis, Change Management, Process and Data Modeling (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/business-data-modeling-informational-requirements/), and Functional Decomposition (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/video-course-exposing-functional-and-non-functional-requirements/). In an Agile environment, Tactical Business Analysis adds to the Product Backlog and/or Release Plans expressed in Themes, Business Epics, Architecture Epics, User Stories (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/video-course-writing-user-stories/), and User Story Epics. In a traditional setting, the primary outcome of Tactical Business Analysis is a set of textual and/or modeled Business and Stakeholder Requirements (http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/video-course-writing-requirements/). ..........

Prefer reading? Also available as part of an eBook at https://www.amazon.com/Data-Flow-Diagramming-Example-Requirements-ebook/dp/B00VECCGLO/. DESCRIPTION (lesson 1.2) A Data Flow Diagram (DFD) is a phenomenal tool for presenting and analyzing business processes by studying how business data is created, consumed, stored, and transported. This lecture describes the purpose and use of business Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs). At the end of this lecture you will understand how DFDs are an excellent tool for identifying Stakeholder, Functional, and Data Requirements. ABOUT THE ECOURSE In this course you will learn process modeling techniques for Requirements Elicitation and Workflow Analysis. Understand and create Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs), Context-level DFDs, and Rigorous Physical Process Models (RPPM). Learn what they are, why they are important, and who can use them. Getting from someone’s explanations of how they do their job to usable and accurate workflow descriptions can be a daunting proposition. This course uses a concrete business scenario to present a simple, easy-to-learn approach for creating these diagrams from an interview with a Subject Matter Expert (SME). You will learn how to create a Rigorous Physical Process Model, evolve it to a Context-Level Data Flow Diagram, and explode the context-level process(es) and data to reveal the nitty-gritty detail (individual process specifications and detailed data specifications) that developers need. In the course, we will present the Who, the What, the When, the Where, the Why, and the How of creating pictures of business processes or workflows. If you are ever responsible for analyzing workflows to identify disconnects or discrepancies, data flow diagramming will help you tremendously. It is a fairly simple idea, it gives you a lot of information on how to look at business processes in a different way. In addition, you will learn the benefits of process visualization for the business community, for the one wearing the BA hat, for those tasked with developing the solution, and ultimately for the entire organization. You will also discover how powerful DFDs are as tools for recognizing and eliminating two of the major problems that haunt IT projects, namely Scope Creep and Project Overruns caused by late project change requests. This course answers the following questions: • What is a Data Flow Diagram (DFD)? • What is a Rigorous Physical Process Model? • What is a Context-Level DFD? • Why should I use Data Flow Diagrams? • What symbols can I use on each type of diagram? • How can I drill down into a process? • How can I show internal processes and flows that produce the results? • What does balancing a Data Flow Diagram mean and what is the business value? • What is the most efficient approach to balancing a DFD? • What business value do process specifications offer? • How can I express detailed specifications for processes and data? • What is “metadata" and why do you need it? • What does a fully balanced DFD look like? • What value does a DFD fragment provide? The course covers the following learning objectives: • Document existing business processes and workflows in Data Flow Diagrams (DFD) to initiate business process analysis • Defend the need for Data Flow Diagrams, Context Diagrams, and Rigorous Physical Process Models • Use the right symbols for each type of diagram to ensure a common interpretation by all parties • Explode a high level Data Flow Diagram to its lower level details to reveal underlying processes and procedures • Balance DFD’s to identify missing processes and reduce late project change requests • Use Horizontal Balancing to discover missing data and minimize redundancies • Document process specifications for functional primitives to guide the solution providers • Express metadata to reveal informational details that developers need to build the solution The authors of this course, Tom and Angela Hathaway, have authored numerous courses and delivered them to students around the world. Based on their experience, they feel very strongly that these techniques that they use in their business analysis endeavors should be available to anyone, anytime, anywhere on the planet.

Part 2: Business Analysis Techniques Used by the Strategic Business Analyst
 
12:41
Part 2 of “Strategic, Tactical, and Operational Business Analysis” presented to the IIBA® (International Institute of Business Analysis TM) Cincinnati Chapter and Bluegrass IIBA® Chapter on August 16 and 17, 2017 For FREE Business Analyst Training videos visit us at https://businessanalysisexperts.com/product-category/free-business-analysis-training/ PRESENTATION OVERVIEW (all parts) The purpose of business analysis is supposedly to define a future that will allow an organization to achieve specific goals and objectives. In reality, the purpose of business analysis can be anything from mindlessly scribbling down “requirements” to predicting the future of the known universe. Although often married to IT (Information Technology), business analysis is a fundamental business process regardless which organizational unit performs it. Because it defines the interface between people and technology, it is by nature complex. Based on experience gained in working with hundreds of organizations of various sizes world-wide, we identify distinct differences in business analysis as practiced at three levels. In a nutshell, Strategic Business Analysis identifies opportunities for improvement. Tactical Business Analysis flushes out the details of defined projects or initiatives. Operational Business Analysis deals with the evolving daily changes in the life of any change process. Defined thusly, these could be three different careers although they share a great deal of common techniques. As the business analyst, you need to be aware of the level at which you are working to morph the techniques for maximum returns. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN: 1. Define strategic, tactical, and operational business analysis audiences, actions, and results 2. Recognize how to leverage the distinction to further your business analysis career 3. Discuss what it means for the future of the business analysis profession TARGET AUDIENCE Project Business Analysts Enterprise Business Analysts Business Systems Analysts Requirements Engineers Business and Solution Architects Business Relationship Managers Project Managers Managers of Business Analysts IT Managers BACoE and PMO Directors PRESENTED BY: Tom Hathaway, Founder and Managing Member of BA-Experts Tom has over 30 years of experience as a practitioner and instructor in the information technology and business analysis fields.

In today’s resource scare environment, customers expect business analyst to have knowledge and skills to conduct enterprise analysis, perform end-to-end business processes re-engineering, identify bottlenecks in their value streams, and most importantly develop solutions that would solve their problems and integrate their vision-strategy-technology towards a common organizational goal. Requirements elicitation and documenting them is a very small subset of a modern day business analyst’s role. This course has been specifically designed keeping in mind the expectations customers have from a seasoned business analyst. In addition to the business analysis skills, project management skills are equally vital for a business analyst. Since the natural career trajectory of a business analyst curve towards project management discipline, we have included key topics of project management as well, which in a ‘real-world’ scenario, any experienced business analyst must be familiar with. WHO CAN ATTEND Any individual with IT/Non-IT background who aspires to make their career in business analysis discipline. PREREQUISITES None. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN Upon successfully completing the course, an individual will learn the following: Background of business analysis discipline and business analysis fundamentals. Role of business analyst in a project. Knowledge areas as defined by IIBA’s BABOK®. Software development lifecycle (SDLC) concepts. Overview of BABOK® knowledge areas. Business process modeling. Use case writing. Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams. Writing and managing requirements documents such as use cases, user stories, business process narratives etc. Requirements management processes. Business analysis best practices. Creating artifacts (deliverables) such as Requirements Management Plan (RMP), Use Cases, Requirements Management Plan (RTM) etc. Project management concepts such as project scope statement, project management plan (PMP), scheduling etc. Hand-on tools for creating business process flows, UML models, RTM etc. Change management, version controlling, defect tracking.

UML Use Case Diagram Tutorial
 
13:24
Learn how to make Use Case Diagrams in this tutorial. Both beginners and intermediate UML diagrammers will find all the necessary training and examples on systems, actors, use cases, and include and extend relationships. UML Use Case Diagrams show a system or application; then they show the people, organizations, or other systems that interact with it; and finally, they show a basic flow of what the system or application does. This tutorial explains the four main characteristics of Use Case Diagrams: systems, actors, use cases, and relationships. A system is whatever you’re developing. It could be a website, a software component, a business process, an app, or any number of other things. You represent a system with a rectangle. The next aspect of Use Case Diagrams are actors. An actor is going to be someone or something that uses our system to achieve a goal, and they're represented by a stick figure. Use Cases are elements that really start to describe what the system does. They're depicted with an oval shape and they represent an action that accomplishes some sort of task within the system. The final element in Use Case Diagrams are relationships, which show how actors and use cases interact with each other. There are different types of relationships (like association, include, extend, and generalization) that are represented by varying types of lines and arrows. —— Learn more and sign up: http://www.lucidchart.com Follow us: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lucidchart Twitter: https://twitter.com/lucidchart Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lucidchart LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/lucidsoftware

What is a Data Flow Diagram and Why Do You Need One?
 
02:29
Lesson 1.3 of the eCourse “Data Flow Diagrams — Simply Put!” View the full course overview and outline at http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/ecourse-data-flow-diagrams-context-model/. Prefer reading? Also available as part of an eBook at https://www.amazon.com/Data-Flow-Diagramming-Example-Requirements-ebook/dp/B00VECCGLO/. DESCRIPTION (lesson 1.3) Use a Data Flow Diagram to represent the current workflow and easily recognize disconnects. Comparing an “as-is” DFD with a proposed “to-be” DFD facilitates Gap Analysis. You can create a DFD for many reasons but the main purpose is to have a visual representation of a business process or workflow. A Dataflow Diagram is an invaluable tool in discovering and eliciting functional requirements and can be used in a variety of process analysis techniques. ABOUT THE ECOURSE In this course you will learn process modeling techniques for Requirements Elicitation and Workflow Analysis. Understand and create Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs), Context-level DFDs, and Rigorous Physical Process Models (RPPM). Learn what they are, why they are important, and who can use them. Getting from someone’s explanations of how they do their job to usable and accurate workflow descriptions can be a daunting proposition. This course uses a concrete business scenario to present a simple, easy-to-learn approach for creating these diagrams from an interview with a Subject Matter Expert (SME). You will learn how to create a Rigorous Physical Process Model, evolve it to a Context-Level Data Flow Diagram, and explode the context-level process(es) and data to reveal the nitty-gritty detail (individual process specifications and detailed data specifications) that developers need. In the course, we will present the Who, the What, the When, the Where, the Why, and the How of creating pictures of business processes or workflows. If you are ever responsible for analyzing workflows to identify disconnects or discrepancies, data flow diagramming will help you tremendously. It is a fairly simple idea, it gives you a lot of information on how to look at business processes in a different way. In addition, you will learn the benefits of process visualization for the business community, for the one wearing the BA hat, for those tasked with developing the solution, and ultimately for the entire organization. You will also discover how powerful DFDs are as tools for recognizing and eliminating two of the major problems that haunt IT projects, namely Scope Creep and Project Overruns caused by late project change requests. This course answers the following questions: • What is a Data Flow Diagram (DFD)? • What is a Rigorous Physical Process Model? • What is a Context-Level DFD? • Why should I use Data Flow Diagrams? • What symbols can I use on each type of diagram? • How can I drill down into a process? • How can I show internal processes and flows that produce the results? • What does balancing a Data Flow Diagram mean and what is the business value? • What is the most efficient approach to balancing a DFD? • What business value do process specifications offer? • How can I express detailed specifications for processes and data? • What is “metadata" and why do you need it? • What does a fully balanced DFD look like? • What value does a DFD fragment provide? The course covers the following learning objectives: • Document existing business processes and workflows in Data Flow Diagrams (DFD) to initiate business process analysis • Defend the need for Data Flow Diagrams, Context Diagrams, and Rigorous Physical Process Models • Use the right symbols for each type of diagram to ensure a common interpretation by all parties • Explode a high level Data Flow Diagram to its lower level details to reveal underlying processes and procedures • Balance DFD’s to identify missing processes and reduce late project change requests • Use Horizontal Balancing to discover missing data and minimize redundancies • Document process specifications for functional primitives to guide the solution providers • Express metadata to reveal informational details that developers need to build the solution The authors of this course, Tom and Angela Hathaway, have authored numerous courses and delivered them to students around the world. Based on their experience, they feel very strongly that these techniques that they use in their business analysis endeavors should be available to anyone, anytime, anywhere on the planet.

Prefer reading? Try the book version at http://www.amazon.com/Data-Flow-Diagramming-Example-Requirements-ebook/dp/B00VECCGLO/ DESCRIPTION (lectures 7 - 9) Looking inside a complex process on a Data Flow Diagram can reveal hidden data and uncover potential problem areas. The first step toward ultimately exploding or levelling a process is to identify the internal processes that will become visible on a more detailed Data Flow Diagram. The problem is that a detailed DFD should never have more than 7 plus/minus 2 processes. How do you know which processes to represent? In lectures 7-9 you will learn how to identify the "RIGHT" Processes for a Data Flow Diagram (DFD). Lectures 7-9 answer questions like: • What does “exploding a process” mean? • What is the business value of doing it? • What processes will the lower level diagram contain?

The Beginner's Guide to Visio - Visio Basics 2018 Tutorial
 
18:56
Are you new to Microsoft Visio and would like to learn how to draw your first diagram? In this tutorial will teach you everything you need to know. SUBSCRIBE!!!: http://www.howtoanalyzedata.net/youtube This tutorial introduces you to Microsoft Visio Tool and shows you how to create basic diagram in Microsoft Visio. Microsoft Visio is an application to create diagrams. From flow charts to floor plans to swim lane diagrams to networking diagrams and organizational charts: Visio can handle it all. In this tutorial we will look at the features of Visio and will cover creation of Visio diagrams step by step. Microsoft Visio is software for drawing diagrams. These include floor plans, electrical diagrams, flowcharts, org charts, building plans, floor plans, data flow diagrams, process flow diagrams, business process modeling, swim lane diagrams, 3D maps, and many more. Microsoft Visio can be used in all below settings and more: In Architecture: Create Floor plans, plumbing and electrical diagrams In any field: A flowchart, which can take various forms, can be used to document and analyze a process; standardize a process for efficiency and quality; communicate a process for training or understanding by other parts of the organization; and identify bottlenecks, redundancies and unnecessary steps in a process and improve it. In software engineering and business analysis: Data flow diagrams (DFDs) can provide a focused approach to technical development, in which more research is done upfront to get to coding. Business analysts use DFDs to analyze existing systems and find efficiencies. Diagramming the process can uncover steps that might otherwise be missed or not fully understood. In business: Business Process Modeling and Notation (BPMN) is targeted at participants and other stakeholders in a business process to gain understanding through an easy-to-understand visual representation of the steps. At a more involved level, it’s targeted at the people who will implement the process, giving sufficient detail to enable precise implementation In chemical engineering or process engineering: A Process Flow Diagram (PFD) is a type of flowchart that illustrates the relationships between major components at an industrial plant. Diagrams can serve to document, analyze, audit, or model a better way. ----------------------------------------------- LET'S CONNECT!

Try the book version at http://www.amazon.com/Data-Flow-Diagramming-Example-Requirements-ebook/dp/B00VECCGLO/ DESCRIPTION (lectures 11 - 12) Once you have exploded a process on your data flow diagram to a lower level of detail, you need to balance the two levels to ensure completeness and avoid missing processes and data early in the project when it is still cheap to add them. Waiting until later in the process to discover them has proven to be a very expensive endeavor.

Lectures 11 - 12 answer questions like: 1. What does balancing a Data Flow Diagram mean? 2. What is the business value of balancing? 3. What is the most efficient approach to balancing a DFD? ABOUT THE ECOURSE This KK is part of an eCourse (VIEW FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OUTLINE at http://businessanalysisexperts.com/product/ecourse-data-flow-diagrams-context-model/). In this course you will learn the answers to these questions: • What is a Data Flow Diagram (DFD) and what does it do for you? • What is the difference between a Rigorous Physical Process Model and a Context-Level DFD? • What symbols can you use on each type of diagram? • What is the business value of exploding or levelling a DFD? • What is a simple approach for drilling down into a process? • How can you show the internal processes and flows that produce the results? • What does balancing a Data Flow Diagram mean and what is the business value? • What is the most efficient approach to balancing a DFD? • What business value do detailed process specifications offer? • How can you express detailed specifications for processes and data? • What is “metadata" and why do you need it? • What does a fully balanced DFD look like? • What value does a DFD fragment provide?
