What Every Project Manager Needs to Know about Business Analysis

business analysis

Did you know that…

-        47% (nearly half!) of unsuccessful projects fail to meet their intended goals due to poor requirements and that

-        for every 1 billion dollars spent on projects and programs $51 million (5.1%) is wasted as a result of poor requirements management?

These are just some of the alarming statistics that PMI has published in recent years in its Pulse of the Profession® reports. There is no doubt that Business Analysis is a critical competency for project and program managers – yet many project teams are lacking those with the necessary skills to perform this important work.
