January BA Career Series - Context Diagrams

Thursday, January 19, 2023 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm

Context Diagrams:

Your first and strongest go-to tool in your BA kit!

FREE Virtual Partnership Event

Thursday, January 19, 2023
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST (GMT - 5 hours)

In our BA Career Series sessions, in partnership with Ryland Leyton and other IIBA chapters, we will investigate specialized and complementary careers in business analysis, such as Agile Analyst, Business Relationship Management, Change Management, Product Ownership Analyst, Project Management, and others.

The Context diagram is a key tool for use in every BA situation. It helps us focus on problems, capabilities, solutions, and stakeholders in a way that supports a breadth-before-depth thought process that is perfect for business analysts!

During this presentation, Ryland will discuss how using this technique will help you fully understand the scope of your solution at the right point in the project - the beginning! - so that you can collaborate with your project team, as well as your internal and external customers. Context diagrams enable you to have powerful and collaborative conversations with your team: clarify scope boundaries with your project sponsor, scope and risk with your project manager, and technology solution issues with your technical professionals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the purpose and value of the context diagram technique.
  • Be able to start creating context diagrams during your BA work.
  • Apply agile analysis principles in support of this elicitation and modeling activity.
