My Daily Thoughts


Ask Why

All highly competent people continually search for ways to keep learning, growing, and improving. They do that by asking WHY. After all, the person who knows HOW will always have a job, but the person who knows WHY will always be the boss.
Benjamin Franklin

As a business analyst, one question you should always be asking is WHY?

Why is this requirement needed?
Why is this feature needed?
Why is this data required?
Why is this stakeholder responsible?
Why is this process done in this way?

There should be a handful of business outcomes that are being strived for and by asking why you should be able to trace all solutions to requirements and all requirements to these business outcomes.
