From the Back Cover:

Praise for Business Analysis Best Practices for Success

"The profession, growth, and acceptance of the business analyst are increasing in a way similar to the growth of project management in the early 1980s. A recent review of the emphasis on requirements and requirements management shows the business analyst is at the forefront of successful change in organizations and enterprises around the world. Today, companies are taking on more complex projects. Many of these types of projects are strategic in nature and necessary for the growth and even the survivability of the firm. While business decision-making can be accompanied by large rewards, there is also the opportunity for catastrophic failures if faulty business decisions are made. Most successful business process methodologies will include business analysis and project management. The need for business analysis support on process improvement and solution development is quite apparent.

This book by Steven Blais is a must-read for all professionals working on business and technical initiatives. Business analysts, project managers, and other stakeholders must understand each other's role in order for a successful marriage of project management and business analysis to take place. Steven clearly defines this relationship in Chapter 6 of this new book. It is entirely possible that, in the future, business analysis certification will be required by anyone working on business processes. But for the present and the near future, project support from business analysts will be essential. This book is just the tool and resource needed to explain, clarify, and put the practical concepts of business analysis in the hands of project stakeholders, project managers, and business analysts."
--Harold Kerzner, PhD, MS, and MBA Senior Executive Director, IIL

"Since I first met Steven Blais, I felt he was one of the best living examples of a true business analyst and captured the spirit of the profession. Hence, I began reviewing this book with high expectations, and it did not disappoint. Steven excels at communicating concepts that have real meaning and utility, dealing with the real-world, practical challenges we face while doing business analysis, and gives us the tools and structures we need to do business analysis at its best."
--Laura Brandenburg host, Bridging-the-Gap.com

"I am excited to see this project finally published. Steve's understanding of business analysts, their roles and responsibilities, and the contribution they make to the development of solid business requirements is unparalleled. Having good requirements is the cornerstone of any successful project.The book provides not only a thorough discourse on the topic; it can easily be used as a reference guide."
--Mara D. Burns, PMP cofounder, PM Lessons Learned
