Our business analysis process

  • 01

    Product discovery

    The discovery phase involves gathering product requirements, checking existing documentation, identifying stakeholders, and establishing project goals and objectives. A business analyst will work with product owners and stakeholders to shape product vision and validate the idea behind it. If you need to gain insights into user preferences, BA will conduct user research.

  • 02

    Requirements analysis & prioritization

    Before suggesting the best-fit solution, a Business Analyst will analyze and organize data to identify patterns, trends, and relationships. This includes developing use cases, user stories, and high-level SRS that define how the product works. We evaluate each implementation option based on business value and project needs, facilitating faster and easier decision-making.

  • 03

    Outlining scope of work

    Once all stakeholders agree upon the product vision, we develop more granular functional and non-functional requirements. A Business Analyst develops project scope and shares it with all stakeholders to ensure that final solution meets business and users’ needs.

  • 04

    Requirements management

    BA manages changes to the requirements throughout the software development lifecycle, ensuring that all changes are communicated to stakeholders and impact on the project is thoroughly evaluated.

  • Who is a business analyst?

    A Business Analyst is a professional who works closely with stakeholders to analyze and identify business needs and requirements, and recommend solutions to improve existing business processes. It’s not just a hired professional, but a strategic partner who works directly with you, putting your business and product first.
    At Blackthorn Vision, Business Analysts are dedicated to understanding the risks and opportunities associated with your product, ensuring it provides maximum value from your vision. They possess a combination of skills in business process analysis, project management, communication, and problem-solving.

  • What is the responsibility of a business analyst on a software development project?

    The responsibilities of a Business Analyst vary depending on the specific project, industry, and organization. Some common responsibilities include:

    • Analyzing business needs and requirements.
    • Auditing the existing solutions and business processes.
    • Validating product vision and feasibility.
    • Defining project scope.
    • Documenting requirements.
    • Supervising testing and quality assurance activities.
    • Facilitating cross-team and stakeholder communication.
  • When should I look for business analysis services?

    If you’re looking to accelerate your business growth, achieve your objectives, develop a unique selling proposition, minimize potential risks, choose the right technology stack, then our business analysis services are ideal for you. Our Business Analysts possess the skills and experience required to help you take your business to the next level.

  • Does every team need a business analyst?

    The need for a Business Analyst varies depending on the nature and complexity of a project. On a small or simple project, the responsibilities of a Business Analyst are fulfilled by a Project Manager or a developer with business analysis skills. However, having a Business Analyst on board significantly improves the chances of success on large-scale and complex projects. A BA ensures that your product aligns with the company’s strategic goals and mitigates risks that can lead to wasted time and budget.

  • What if I skip the product discovery phase?

    Product discovery is key for understanding the problem your product is intended to solve, defining the target audience, identifying market trends, analyzing competition, and developing a clear vision and strategy for the software development project. Without the discovery phase, your IT project can face various challenges:

    • Inadequate understanding of the target audience and their needs, which leads to failing to meet their expectations.
    • Lack of clarity on project requirements, which results in missing out on the stakeholder’s needs.
    • Limited vision for the product, resulting in a solution that doesn’t support improvement and scaling.
    • Increased risk of project delays, scope creep, or failure.

    Therefore, it’s crucial to invest time and effort into the product discovery phase to ensure your project has a solid foundation and a clear direction for success.
