Being Successful in Software Initiatives Starts with Your Business Analysis Capability
Success in software initiatives is dependent on an organisations agility and maturity in requirements. Requirements are the backbone for bringing a concept to cash, and so exceptional business analysis is key for successful software initiatives.
No individual is an expert in all areas of business analysis. For organisations to consistently reap the benefits of exceptional business analysis they should invest in establishing a Business Analysis Centre of Excellence.

Want even greater success in your software initiatives? Establish a BACoE
A Business Analysis Centre of Excellence (BACoE) promotes better outcomes by focusing resources and capability to develop and maintain leading edge practices to drive better business performance. Many organisations struggle with the development and maintenance of a centre of excellence due to competing priorities, transient staff, or limited budget, often investing hundreds of thousands of dollars, with little to show for it.
Exceptional business analysis is imperative for success in software initiatives. If organisations are to address changing strategies, competition in the market place, omni-channel product and service delivery for various customer personas, and a multitude of solution options, having an exceptional business analysis underpinning will provide a far better chance of success.
Business Analysis (BAPL) have been delivering business analysis for over 15 years and, during that time, have developed an in-depth Centre of Excellence to help our consultants excel where many others do not. Establishing a BACoE in your organisation will enable your Business Analysts to deliver better quality business analysis sooner, which will in-turn provide better project and business outcomes for you and your customers. And we can help you do this.
With BAPL we will embed in your organisation:
Delivery Frameworks, Templates, and Tools – The ability to adapt to different delivery frameworks – customised methods depending on the selected approach, a wide range of techniques to suit a variety of stakeholders and situations, and customisable templates and tools to support the analysis and estimation.
Service and Quality – Services are defined, delivery is planned, progress is reported on and a quality assurance process is managed ensuring the quality of business analysis is validated and verified.
Career Development – There is a career pathway for the business analyst role within the organisation, if performed internally. The CoE provides access to BAPL’s competency models.
Education and Development – Business analysts should be continually developing so they can achieve excellence in business analysis. Assess a growing number of recorded sessions focusing on techniques and business analyst concepts.
Organisation – Across the organisation business analysis maturity is developed and any external business analyst sourcing strategy supports this, so there is growth in business outcomes. BAPL’s consulting services can assist you in your peak periods whilst uplifting the capability in business analysis across the organisation through the CoE.
