Most business analyst professionals recognize the importance of identifying and performing business analysis activities in order to successfully deliver requirements and meet project goals. But what about planning and managing how these business analysis activities are actually performed? A proposed structure and schedule for communications, a requirements management plan, and a clear plan to ensure business analysis activities are executed as efficiently as possible are all key elements of successful business analysis.
