Gathering business requirements

An attempt to improve the process in DMV

pm and ba structure in dmv
PM and BA Structure in DMV
  • PMO
    • PM’s in PMO manage projects and often perform role of the BA
  • Program Analysis
    • Administrative Analysts in PA manage projects, act as BA’s on projects, and also perform dual role
  • Project Management at DMV Team (PMAT)
    • Community of practice – establish PM methodology
  • Business Process Center of Excellence (BOCOE)
    • Business process modeling/analysis
    • Eventually feed business case for change
gathering requirements as is
Gathering Requirements – As Is
  • High level requirements captured in the project scope statement
  • Business rules captured in standard business rule document created by IT
  • No standard BRD
  • Issues:
    • Requirements are not fully documented and system does not meet users’ needs – rework
    • Requirements gathering takes too much time = projects take too much time
gathering requirements to be
Gathering Requirements – To Be
  • Standardize BA practices – like we’ve done for project management
    • Pilot BRD on one project (PMO)
      • Format for high-level requirements
      • Possibly new format for business rules
      • Leave no requirement behind…
    • BPCOE and PA
      • Standard business analysis modeling tools
      • Business processes are documented prior to business case development and project kick-off – streamline the requirements process
brd pilot
BRD Pilot
  • Used a BRD template for the Audit Modernization Project – why?
    • In theory, developing a standard template for use by all projects – like PM templates - may speed up the requirements gathering process. BA’s and PM’s know what to expect.
    • Requirements are now contained in several documents – scope, business rules, Visio diagrams, spreadsheets – would one document better tell the requirements story?
status
Status
  • BRD has not be passed off to IT staff for functional specifications, but IT lead has found this format useful
    • Area for comments in the business rule section would be helpful
    • Need to assess with the team to determine what worked or what could have been done better
  • Still took quite a bit of time to develop the requirements
discussion
Discussion
  • Does your agency use a BRD or are the requirements documented in a series of documents?
  • How does your agency speed up the requirements process?
  • What recommendations do you have for us as we continue to develop strategies for gathering requirements?
