Does your PM job involve business analysis? It’s not hard to see how business analysis and project management roles often blend in their work on IT and business transformation efforts. We also found that project managers and business analysts naturally assume business analyst responsibilities. This is especially true when one of these roles is not present or weak in an organization. To respond to a previous post, I wrote here: “How to not choke your business analyst?” A reader pointed out that I assumed that PMs understood the role of business analyst. I would like to answer that question directly and offer some clues to project managers to help them discover that they may also be business analysts. What is a business analyst? According to IIBA, a business analyst acts as a liaison between stakeholders to elicit and analyze requirements to change business processes, policies, and information systems. The business analyst analyzes the business and provides solutions to help the organization achieve its goals. “[1] The most common business analyst role involves a subset of the following areas:

The requirements planning approach to a project. Enterprise analysis (pre-project analysis that includes a business case and business value statements) Eliminate all requirements from stakeholders Specificing and analysing your requirements Validating that the requirements are correct and complete; Traceability is key to managing requirements Communication of the requirements to the implementation group Accepting the solution … Read more

Do your project teams suffer from chronic media multitasking? There is no doubt that multitasking, particularly among the most experienced, can be inefficient and even harmful. Clifford Nass and Thomas M. Storke Professor at Stanford University Abstract multitasker. Photo by totalAldo via Flickr. Although multitasking is becoming more common, it is still a challenge for human cognition to process multiple streams of information. A series of experiments was conducted to determine if there were systematic differences in the information processing styles of chronically heavy and light media multitaskers. To identify heavy and light media multitaskers, a trait media multitasking index has been developed. The cognitive control dimensions were used to compare the two groups. Results showed that heavy media multitaskers are more vulnerable to interference from irrelevant stimuli and from irrelevant representations of memory. It was surprising to see that heavy media multitaskers did worse in a task-switching test. This is likely due to their reduced ability to filter out interference from irrelevant task sets. These results show that media multitasking is a rapidly increasing societal trend. It is associated with a unique approach to fundamental information processing. What is “Media Multitasking?” The study examined chronic media multitasking. ? “Media multitasking”, as I understand it, is specifically related to computer-related multitasking between?unrelated tasks. This could be used to write this blog post while simultaneously checking my email, Twitter, and Facebook. Ooops…. Sorry! According to my understanding, media multitasking does not include the simultaneous completion of related tasks. If I write this blog post, and then switch to the article to check facts or find information, I am still working on the “project”. If a programmer is working on code and instant messages a teammate for advice, it is not multitasking. However, the one who sent out the message may have been doing something else, so the receiver could be multitasking. Clifford Nass, a Stanford professor, is one of the authors. He noted in a recent?Science Friday podcast that instrumental music did not have the same cognitive effects as true media multitasking. ? (So programmers can still jam out to rave music while they code! Abilities Researchers didn’t observe multitasking people. This study classified people as chronic media multitaskers or those who don’t and assessed cognitive functions separately. The study focused on three specific abilities. The researchers were shocked to discover that chronic media multitaskers were worse at all three. ?Even though I have been a vocal critic of bad multitasking for a while, I was surprised to learn that people don’t improve their skills as they practice multitasking.

Filtering – Chronic multitaskers are more likely to filter than others and ignore irrelevant information. Management of Working Memory – Chronic multitaskers have a less organized management of working memory Task switching – Chronic multitaskers are slower at task shifting Possible Implications: In the case of an instant message in which the sender is not … Read more

Do you use Twitter? I have been spending a lot more time on Twitter lately. I know what you’re thinking …. “gee, I wish that I had so much time to spare!” Hear me.

It can be a great way to connect with people if you know how. Here’s how I use Twitter
