Business Analysis Techniques - Stakeholder Analysis


Here are some Key Point Notes on Business Analysis Techniques - Stakeholder Analysis.

This topic is part of the syllabus for the British Computer Society (BCS) Certificate in Requirements Engineering and the BCS Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis.

The notes below are based on the syllabus for Certificate in Requirements Engineering and the specific terms used are those needed for answers in the BCS examinations.

Stakeholder Analysis also features as part of the various certificates awarded by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) - so people studying for those will also find these notes helpful.
But - be aware that the examinations for these are based on the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) - so the terms used there may be different in some cases.
