The Business Plan

business analysis plan will bring clarity to the business analysis process and help to define the detailed requirements for a project. A business analysis plan is going to answer many questions for the analyst and their project team.

Key responsibilities in this step include:

  • Choosing the most appropriate types of business analysis deliverables, given the project scope, methodology, and other key aspects of the project context.
  • Defining the specific list of business analysis deliverables that will cover the scope of the project and identifying the stakeholders who will be part of the creation and validation of each deliverable.
  • Identifying timelines for completing deliverables.

In the absence of a credible and realistic plan, a set of expectations may be defined for you, and often those expectations are unrealistic as they do not fully appreciate everything that goes into defining detailed requirements.
