Top Business Analysis Trends of 2013: Strong User Stories Will Drive Effective Requirements Analysis

Now more than ever, businesses of all shapes and sizes require effective business analysis to be successful in this highly competitive business world. Business analysis involves taking information gathered from a variety of sources and analyzing to forecast future trends, finding ways to make improvements in business strategies, improving operations, and making strategic decisions to improve the overall bottom line.

Moving through 2013, according to Nancy Yee, vice president of Global Product Strategy, ESI International, there are key business analysis trends that will be prominent and that businesses should embrace this year. The second significant business analysis trend of 2013 is strong user stories will be the force driving effective requirements analysis and product backlog prioritization

If the BA is already working with the product owner the BA needs go back to the roots of what they know, being able to elicit and analyze requirements in the form of a user story.

In 2013, BAs must return to the grassroots of what you know in requirements management development and get in sync with your inner elicitation and analysis requirements, focusing on the perspective of developing user stories.

“Using what you already know from an analysis standpoint, you will create successful user stories that will help your product owner prioritize their product backlog and deliver value at every iteration,” she commented.
