Besides new contacts, practices, rational and emotional experience, the recent CEE-SECR’2016 has given another outcome we’d like to share with our readers. That is a recommendation of Howard Podeswa’s “UML for the IT Business Analyst: A Practical Guide to Object-Oriented Requirements Gathering”.
Published in 2005 by Muska & Lipman (and sometimes erroneously attributed to these two as authors), the book “provides a clear, step-by-step guide to how the business analyst can perform his or her role using state-of-the-art object-oriented technology. Business analysts are required to understand object-oriented technology although there are currently no other books that address their unique needs as non-programmers using this technology. Assuming no prior knowledge of business analysis, IT, or object-orientation, material is presented in a narrative, chronological, hands-on style using a real-world case study. Upon completion of UML for the IT Business Analyst the reader will have created an actual business requirements document using all of the techniques of object-orientation required of a Business Analyst” (from amazon.de).
