Students will be required to develop, based on a real business problem and through various data
gathering techniques, a business requirements document detailing the scope of analysis, the current
the business situation, and needs within the established scope.
Students may choose to either:
1) Develop a short brief on their own sourced business problem and agree with their tutor that
it will be of adequate scope and complexity to pursue as the subject matter of this
assignment. This option is strongly preferred as it provides an opportunity for a team to
pursue a ‘real-world’ BA activity and provide some valuable outputs and advice for a
business or division. Students will be required to organize access to the business through
their own networks. It is the students’ responsibility to ensure access is provided so they
can successfully complete this assessment.
2) Attend the assignment briefing to be delivered during the Week 6 lecture, where for those
groups who are unable to source a ‘real-world’ problem or opportunity, a scenario will be
provided. Students will have a limited opportunity to ask questions under these conditions.
Following the briefing, one member of the group will assume the role of client/key
stakeholder/sponsor of the business.
Students will elicit requirements from the client, organize and analyze these requirements, and
clearly document them. In carrying out this task, students will be required to clearly show how they
have followed the BABOK Guide.
Students may work in teams of 3 or 4 to complete this assignment. Teams may change their
membership until the end of Week 8, after which they will be set. All members will receive the same
mark for this assignment, and any team disputes must be settled within the team. All team members
must be clearly identified on the assignment including student number, name, tutorial, and tutor’s
Requirements may be presented using a variety of application techniques as described in Chapter 9
of BABOK. At least one Use Case must be included.
Ensure that you identify all members in your group on the coversheet. Assignments must be
submitted through the unit’s Blackboard Assessment page by one member of the group only.
