What is business analysis?
The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), a nonprofit professional association, defines business analysis as the practice of enabling change in an organizational context, by defining needs and recommending solutions that deliver value.
Practically this results in:
- Discovery of the primary business objectives
- Definition of scope
- Elicitation and formulation of the detailed project requirements
- Validation of the requirements
- Discovery of the effective solution
- Support of the technical implementation
What does the business analyst do?

Why is business analysis important?
