As promised, here is Part 2 of the presentation to the IIBA® (International Institute of Business Analysis™) Cincinnati Chapter and the Bluegrass IIBA® Chapter. Part 3 will be coming next week (I hope).

NEW workshop: Lean Business Analysis for Lean Requirements – Simply Put!

Helping Product Owners and Business-side Teams Discover and Write Requirements, User Stories, Features, Acceptance Tests, Scenarios, and Examples

About Part 2: The idea behind Strategic, Tactical, and Operational Business Analysis is the recognition that business analysis is not just one size fits all. This video introduces typical outcomes of Strategic Business Analysis and common business analysis techniques used at this level.

At the enterprise or unit level, strategic business analysis identifies, defines, scopes, and prioritizes projects and initiatives in line with organizational goals, objectives, and strategies. To be effective, this business process relies on sound business analysis tools and techniques. Although many organizations show a job title “Business Analyst” in their org charts, strategic business analysis is usually not the exclusive domain of any given position. CEOs, COOs, Marketing Directors, Production Control Managers, Product Managers, Product Owners, Subject Matter Experts, and other positions at every level of the organization often perform this critical activity.
