This is a really practical book that outlines the typical activities that a Business Analyst would carry out on a project. It's very practical, and gives a whole range of tips, tricks and anecdotes. I really enjoyed reading it.
It's really clear when reading this book that the authors are practicing Business Analysts themselves (or have been in the recent past). This leads to a really clear, understandable and practical book.
I'd recommend this book to anyone considering business analysis as a career who wants to get a sense of the typical activities, tasks and techniques that a BA would carry out on a project, as well as any existing BAs who are looking to formalise their knowledge (there's always more we can learn!).
Of course, as I've yet to become an accredited and paid business analyst, I may be wide of the mark, but the book provides a rational and in-depth review of the responsibilities, (conceptual) tools and practices of a business analyst, such that I can reposition 30 years of experience into a BA context. It's reassuring to go through the book with a sense of 'I could do that', and to understand what might be expected of me in a new career path.
