• Provide scoping services to help clarify business problems, objectives and potential solutions by using appropriate business analysis techniques including: Data Analysis, Process Analysis, Business Case Assessments, and Root Cause Analysis etc.
• Elicit and validate requirements through the effective use of requirements gathering workshops and resolve any complex requirement conflicts through effective stakeholder engagement.
• Work with the BRMs and Delivery Managers to identify stakeholders who are affected by a proposed initiative or who share a common business need.
• Work closely with IS Architects to identify and evaluate potential solutions, and also to validate the recommended solution address the business requirements.
