Business Analyst


How To Become Business Analyst

Our senior business analysts are able to provide consultancy services on a daily, weekly or long-term basis. We can provide additional resource to your existing team to manage workflow peaks, or, if your team requires support we can provide ‘at-the-desk’ coaching during key project milestones to help your team meet their goals.

Some of the areas in which our team can assist are:

  • Methods and Approach
  • Project initiation and scoping
  • Business Case development
  • Requirements gathering, elicitation & quality review
  • Data Modelling
  • Process Modelling
  • Business implementation
  • Agile working

We can provide support in all project environments including Agile and PRINCE2.

We can also provide consultancy services to design and deliver development programmes for business analysts at any level. We can help define the knowledge and key skills required for new or existing roles, assessing current or required competency levels and putting in place development programmes.

Consultancy rates are variable, depending on the effort and duration of the contract, geographical location and deliverables. We can discuss your requirements with you and provide rates on request. If you would like support in estimating the effort or duration of your piece of work please contact us with a statement of work to be undertaken (or job description), and we can estimate this for you.


Business analysis investigates business situations, identifies and evaluates options for improving business systems, defining requirements and ensuring the effective use of information systems in meeting the needs of the business. Solutions often include a software-systems development component, but may also consist of process improvement, organizational change or strategic planning and policy development.

The IET PMO focuses on applying IT solutions to business needs. A business analyst will provide:

  • Provide a holistic view of a business process or system.
  • Provide business system improvement recommendations.
  • Comprehensive documentation of IT system business requirements.
  • Elicitation of requirements as user-stories in support of agile software development.
