A Day in the Life

A successful business analyst will be facilitating meetings with our internal customers and the development team.  They'll own the client's requirements from initial requirements to status updates and change requests. They'll take raw requirements from the client, document them and add them to the development team's planning tools. Breaking down large items into initiatives, features and requirements. 

The business analyst will also play a role further into the development lifecycle by leading testing initiatives; creating test plans, test scenarios and test data; overseeing and executing test plans.Once features and requirements are delivered the business analyst will assist with solving issues, identifying and reporting issues to tracking and implementing resolutions in a timely manner.
