Join Haydn Thomas for an in-depth discussion in this video On the role of business analysis in rescuing troubled projects, part of Insights from a Business Analyst.
Troubled projects normally have some common themes. …The first one is that they …really don't know what they're aiming for. …So in other words, they [haven't had] …predefined success criteria. …The second thing is is that they haven't …necessarily engaged the users …throughout the project itself. …And the third reason why most projects fail …is because of the wrong assumptions being made, …which basically has an impact …on the scope of the project, …the things you will do and you won't do. …The thing with a business analyst, …we spend a lot of time identifying stakeholders. …We need to be able to work out what it is they want …and what they bring into the organization. …We then have to be involving them and getting …them involved in discussions and workshops, …so there is that user involvement. …But then, more importantly, …is we use the skills to elicit that information …and be able to present it in such a way that …it can help the organization, …or more importantly, …this troubled project get back on the right path. …
