Business Analysis

Insights | 02 October 2009

Business strategy execution depends upon developing and implementing the best solution. Sustainable success relies upon each solution being based on precise, valid and complete requirements to fully address the issue or opportunity.

According to the Standish Group, poor requirements definition is one of the leading causes of project failure.

The top 3 project management success factors are as follows:

  1. User Involvement.
  2. Executive Management Support.
  3. Clear Statement of Requirements.

PM-Partners group’s own research has also shown that 85% of Australian organisations consider clear agreed project requirements to be a critical project success factor.

The PM-Partners group’s Business Analysis Practice is comprised of three streams, delivering a complete organisational development package:

  • Education.
  • Consultancy and Method Development.
  • Project Delivery Business.


The PM-Partners group’s suite of Business Analysis courses forms a comprehensive Learning Pathway for both the emerging and developed Business Analysts, culminating in the sought-after Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) accreditation from the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA).

PM-Partners group is an IIBA Endorsed Education Provider and every one of our Business Analysis courses is endorsed by the IIBA.
