Neil Bazley – The Opportunity for Motive (and the Means!)

How do you determine if you are doing the right thing, not just doing things right? As a Business Analyst, are you plagued by doubts that the initiative you are working on will not enable the business? And what does that even mean?

Enter the Business Motivation Model or BMM for short.

“BMM captures business requirements across different dimensions to rigorously capture and justify why the business wants to do something, what it is aiming to achieve, how it plans to get there, and how it assesses the result.” ~IBM

Using this simple framework, you too can make your organisation’s strategy and objectives explicit, strengthening your requirements’ ties and traceability to what the organisation really wants to accomplish.

This session will be a deep dive into Object Management Group (OMG)’s Business Motivation Model, as a tool to have more intelligent strategic conversations with your leadership, to structure your project team’s effort or to better understand your organisation’s business architecture.
