Why is Business Analysis So Complex?

Most organizations are in a constant state of change. Competition prompts us to frequently offer new products and services; regulations are constantly being amended. Change can result in chaotic environments if you don't have a positive change culture. Business Analysis skills are key to critically analyzing the potential impacts of change. By working across the organization, business analysts evaluate and manage the impact, interaction and interfaces of numerous changes, making sure they are aligned with the organization's vision and strategic plans.

Fortunately, there are processes, techniques and tools which help business analysts manage these complexities.
