The RACI Technique for Business Analysts
Esta Lessing, Analyst, Australia, Member
The role of a Business Analyst within the project environment is to engage with a multitude of stakeholders (technical and business people) about their requirements and needs for a considered solution.
To avoid speaking with the wrong people or perhaps engaging people at the wrong level of the organisation at the wrong time in the project life cycle, it is essential for the Business Analyst to work out who should be engaged with and to what extent during the project life cycle.
