This volume is the companion workbook to Mastering Business Analysis Standard Practices. Designed for instructors, trainers, and students, this supplemental workbook should be used in conjunction with the main text and enables readers to practice the seven-step business analysis process they are learning with a realistic case study, exercises, and suggested solutions.

Key Features: presents a structured step-by-step process for performing business analysis that any new or experienced practitioner could follow, rather than having to piece the process together themselves; demonstrates how to plan the business analysis work effort and develop and execute communication and information management plans; and shows how to set up a project for success with a clear and concise scope definition boundary, maintain agreement on scope, and control scope in an ever-changing environment.
