Change is one of the biggest challenges facing organisations today and the key to change is business analysis.
The Business Analyst is an agent of change. Business analysis helps companies know how to change – it is a structured way of recognising, formalising and implementing change. How organisations take advantage of the changes in the marketplace will position them to be more successful and competitive.
Business Analysis is the practice of enabling change in an organisational context, by defining needs and recommending solutions that deliver value to stakeholders. A business analyst is someone who analyses the organisation and design of technical systems, business models, processes and strategic business needs. A business analyst is also responsible for discovering the actual needs of stakeholders and not just what they desire.
In the current global economy, instead of thinking strategically, many companies are just reacting. A much better approach is to systematically integrate the business analysis discipline throughout your organisation, from strategy to implementation and across multiple roles.
Key areas that we focus on are:
- Continuous operational improvement – looking at operations and implementing incremental improvements
- Innovation – going beyond incremental improvement to invent and develop breakthroughs
- Improving your ability to adapt – changing the way you change and improving the way you adapt to change
We have the specialized knowledge to act as a guide and lead the business through unknown or unmapped territory, to get it to its desired destination. The value of business analysis is in realization of benefits, avoidance of cost, identification of new opportunities, understanding of required capabilities and modeling the organization. Through the effective use of business analysis, we can ensure an organisation realizes these benefits, ultimately improving the way they do business.
