3 MONTH INTERNSHIP PROJECT TASKS
TASK 1 BUSINESS CASE DEVELOPMENT
No programme of work can be completed without funding! A business analyst is often brought early on in a project in to assist a project manager with drafting a business case. You will work hand-in-hand with your project manager and other business analysts to draft the expected business benefits of the programme to be completed within the 3 month period. Your PM will guide you in the dos and don’ts in business case development to ensure sign-off from the programme sponsor.
TASK 2 AS-IS ANALYSIS
One of the major strengths of a business analyst is to simplify complex processes/systems for the benefit of senior stakeholders. During this task, you will be asked to simplify a complex system using a technique known as case modelling. This will provide a comprehensive picture of how the company works today (AS-IS), from which you can benchmark future improvements.
TASK 3 TARGET OPERATING MODEL
Creating a target operating model and telling a company how it will work in the future is often seen as the are where a business analyst “makes their money”. During your career as a business analyst, it is unlikely that you’ll work on a project for a significant period of time without creating a target operating model. During your 3 month internship, we will show you how to use Draw.IO to produce a professional Target Operating Model.
TASK 4 BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS/ USER STORIES
Business requirements/user stories are short simple descriptions of a feature from a person that desires a new capability (usually a user or customer of a system). After creating the target operating model for the programme, it’s time to draft the detailed user stories which will show exactly how a system will operate in real life. During the programme our project managers will walk you through the user story template, showing your exactly how to capture detailed requirements.
TASK 5 DESIGNING THE SOLUTION
Towards the end of a project, you will be asked to create a mocked-up design of the requirements you created in task 4 using an innovative web tool.Business users constantly want to see their requirements come to life. Gaining the experience to produce a mocked-up solution will prove invaluable as you progress through your career as a business analyst.
TASK 6 USER ACCEPTED TESTING/ BENEFITS REALISATION
Lastly, before any project comes to a close you will need to complete testing and a benefits realisation document. User accepted testing ensures that your product is functional before it is deployed and a benefits realisation document allows a senior stakeholder to analyse what benefits were borne from the programme. This completes the full project life cycle and will give you invaluable experience as a business analyst.
