Document Elicitation Results - Business Analyst

Purpose

Record the information provided by stakeholders for use in analysis.

Description

For an elicitation event (brainstorming, focus groups, interviews, observation, prototyping, requirements workshops) a summary of the output from the event, including issues is produced.

Input

Elicitation Results: Includes the information provided by stakeholders that will be recorded and structured.

Elements

Documentation can take a number of forms, including:

  • Written documents describing the outcomes, such as meeting minutes
  • Visual or audio recordings
  • Whiteboards (either actual or virtual) where notes are retained until they are transferred to another medium.

The technique used for elicitation, as well as the business analysis approach, will determine what kind of documentation is possible and desirable.

Techniques

Brainstorming : The activity generally produces the necessary documentation.

Document Analysis : A report of the findings should be produced.

Focus Groups: The results of a focus group are collated and summarized.

Interface Analysis : A report of the findings should be produced.

Interviews: Results of the interview are documented.

Observation: Results of observation are documented.

Problem Tracking: Elicitation may produce issues that need to be tracked to resolution.

Prototyping: The results of elicitation may undergo requirements analysis directly, without the need for an intermediate step to document them.

Requirements Workshops: The results of elicitation may undergo requirements analysis directly, without the need for an intermediate step to document them.

Survey/Questionnaire: The results of a survey are collated and summarized.

Stakeholders

Business Analyst: Other stakeholders do not need to participate in this task.

Output

Requirements [Stated]: Described from the perspective of the stakeholder. Stated requirements describe the stakeholder’s need from the stakeholder’s perspective.

Stakeholder Concerns: Includes issues identified by the stakeholder, risks, assumptions, constraints, and other relevant information.
