Clarifications on Business Requirement Document

Before starting any development works, we need to have a Business requirement document that outlines the business case/benefits, processes, technology, functionality, data flows, data modeling involved. 

  • Business Case
  • Business processes that involves for the new changes
  • Functional Specification that involves expected system flows, data model for the new changes.

At times, we are overwhelmed with the detailed contents of the document as this document supposed to compile the overall implementation and processes to be delivered from the desired outcomes.  This often results in not understanding what exactly we should be looking out for that have impacts or new changes to the Operations and systems involved.  In most times, we are always stuck on what questions to ask ourselves when trying to understand the documents.

Questions to ask ourselves:

  1. Which existing business processes is/are affected by these new changes?
  2. How these changes in the existing business processes affect the system design for the new changes?
  3. What new technology is being involved and the resources require to manage this new technology?
  4. Which data model/mappings is/are affected by these new changes?  How these changes are affected from the changing business processes.
  5. Which users are affected and what types of new training to be involved to cater these changes?
  6. How the existing administration of the data are being affected?
  7. How the existing Service level support affected by these new changes?
