Whether you are developing new policies, new services, new products, or re-engineering existing processes and products, it is critical to accurately and fully understand the business requirements. Many of the problems associated with projects are directly attributed to business analysis issues.

Business analysis is about understanding business requirements so that products and services developed will meet business needs.
