About the Book

Business Analysis for Practitioners: A Practice Guide by the Project Management Institute (2015)

(Current price is under $35.00 for paperback plus shipping on Amazon or $26.21 for the kindle. The book may also be available from your local library.)

Business Analysis for Practitioners: A Practice Guide provides practical resources to tackle the project-related issues associated with requirements and business analysis—and addresses a critical need in the industry for more guidance in this area.

The practice guide begins by describing the work of business analysis. It identifies the tasks that are performed, in addition to the essential knowledge and skills needed to effectively perform business analysis on programs and projects.

It breaks these tasks into five domains: needs assessment; planning; analysis; traceability and monitoring; and evaluation. Within each of these domains, there are a series of supporting tasks which are defined and explored.

These concepts and skills are applicable to all programs and projects, whether they are focused on products or services or process improvement. They are implementation-independent and can be used to develop manual or automated solutions, using any type of project life cycle.

Due to the unique nature of organizations, there are many different roles that perform business analysis in their work. Regardless of your job title or industry, if you perform business analysis and requirements-related work, this guide will provide practical guidance you can use to drive your projects and programs to more successful outcomes.
