When Is The BA's Work Finally Finished?
The business analyst's work is not finished when the requirements document is signed off. Although other experts are responsible for the project activities, the BA remains involved to ensure that decisions made have no adverse impact on the business stakeholders. As the project progresses, the BA should collaborate with the solution team (for example, development, procurement) to ensure that the agreed solution will satisfy the requirements. After the solution has been built, the BA collaborates with many people on activities such as testing, conversion, cutover, and training. Depending on the roles defined in an organization and the project, the BA may collaborate with the people who are responsible for these activities, or the BA may be the responsible person.
