Throughout the business world, public, private and not-for-profit organisations face huge challenges. Business analysts must respond by developing practical, creative and financially sound solutions. This excellent guide gives them the necessary tools. It supports everyone wanting to achieve university and industry qualifications in business analysis and information systems. It is particularly beneficial for those studying for ISEB qualifications in Business Analysis. Some important additions since the first edition (2006): the inclusion of new techniques such as Ishikawa diagrams and spaghetti maps; expanded treatment of requirements management and investigation of business needs; more detailed treatment of benefits realisation including the use of benefits realisation maps.From first edition: "Great breadth, good depth. A highly recommended introduction to business analysis." Neil Venn, Seabright Consulting
Business Analysis has been written by a team of experts who are both practitioners and educators in the business analysis field.
'From first edition: A wide-ranging text, which challenges those who already believe that currently IT systems are often inefficient and do not meet the organisaton's needs. Although an introductory book it is both practical and readable even for the experienced practitioner.'
Kybernetes, volume 35 issue 9, 2007

'Business Analysis is an excellent introductory text for business analysts seeking to apply the standards, knowledge and competencies of the discipline. It goes beyond most texts to show how business analysts define requirements not only to support IT systems development, but also to drive business change and implement organizational strategy.'
Kathleen Barret, President & CEO, International Institute of Business Analysis
