The Business Analyst Template Toolkit, by Laura Brandenberg (CBAP), is not just a bunch of templates containing empty sub-headings!
It is a valuable resource containing 12 fully annotated templates and helpful guidance on how to use them. And for each template, a corresponding work sample shows you what the template will look like when completed.
These business analysis templates will increase your effectiveness as a business analyst by helping you produce better quality and concise deliverables.
The template pack includes:
- Business Process
- Change Request
- Data Feed Specification
- Glossary Template
- Issues List
- Meeting Agenda
- Meeting Notes
- Requirements Development Plan
- Scope Statement
- Use Case Template
- Use Case List
- User Interface Specification
The toolkit comes with instructions on how to apply these business analysis deliverables in each of the three broad phases of a project. These phases are initiation, definition and implementation. And for each phase you – the business analyst – will provide input at varying degrees.
Whether you’re scoping the project requirements in the initiation phase, developing the functional requirements in the definition phase or revising changes during the implementation phase – the Business Analyst Template Toolkit gives you the guidance you need to produce the correct deliverables in each phase.
Even though this template toolkit won’t be the magic bullet that makes your work suddenly exceptional, it will assist you in improving the quality of your work through increased alignment amongst stakeholders.
I personally recommend the Business Analyst Template Toolkit to any business analyst who wants to get things done and deliver better results.
