What Does a BA Do?

Business Analysts here at PSP are vital to everyday operations. They do things such as:

  • Gathering Requirements from clients
  • Drawing up specifications
  • Looking at overall process flows
  • Writing user stories to give developers an idea of how to implement a feature on a piece of software.

Analysing Business Processes

By understanding the scope of what they’re doing, they can then speak to the relevant stakeholders and see how the future needs to look for you.

BA Manager Colin says, ”It’s about putting a box around what it is, identifying who you need to speak to, when you need to speak to them, and what you need to speak to them about”.

After this, typically a BA “maps out what the processes look like today, and how they need to look tomorrow”.


Implementing The Change

The BA would then:

  • Deliver user stories to developers
  • Take requirements for the future state
  • Write the requirements into user storage formats so the development team knows what the solution should do


Safeguards Business

We work with clients regularly throughout the process so they know what we’re building and have transparency with project updates. We check in with clients to give reassurance and instil confidence.

At PSP, our BAs have a plethora of knowledge stemming across sectors such as:

  • Aerospace
  • Education
  • Not-For-Profits
  • Membership and Qualification
  • Horticultural

This means we can offer you multiple different ideas to find a better fit for your business.

What Are We Focusing On Now?

  • Looking at various parts of the website (typically logged-in parts where it is written in old design language)
  • Doing Technical updates
  • Gathering information to improve the process.
