  • Question


    Would anyone can give the advice for my assignment as below? Many thanks!

    Imagine that you are the new Business Analyst and your manager is based in Taiwan. As part of the new role, you take over the responsibility of an IT system ABC that could be used in your IT solutions proposed to the Customer. ABC is also used in other sub-regions. The local operations are also using ABC for the processing of some shipments and they have been using the system for about a year now.

    On your 3rd day of work, the Operations Manager writes to you to complain about the issues with ABC.

    –Data file cannot be imported

    –Labels cannot be printed

    In your 2nd week of work, a Business Development Manager writes to you to request for a deployment of the ABC system in the new customer facility. During the same week, the Operations Supervisor writes to complain about ABC and that he feels like throwing his PC out of his office after countless attempts to process some shipments in ABC.

    During your 3rd week at work, you are informed of a new business opportunity and the Product Manager is suggesting to use ABC as part of the IT solution.

    It is now the 4th week.

    Describe what you would have done for the past 4 weeks and your plans, if any.

  • I don't think that you will find a lot of help here about your topic. This is the Training and Certification forum from Microsoft. The training that is currently available in the Microsoft Official Curriculum does in some cases provide pointers that would be useful to the Functional Analyst. But as far as I can tell, none of the training courses cover the kind of problems that the Business Analyst would confront according to your question. So I am afraid that you will have to look elsewhere for your answers.
