Title: Why BA’s need facilitation skills and his role as a facilitator
Post by: Sudhir Aryasomayajula on January 09, 2019, 01:44:03 pm
The art of bringing people together, face-to-face or remotely, to elicit requirements and gain consensus on solutions is a critical  success factor for all business analysis professionals.
BA will help stakeholders define their needs effectively through the facilitation skill.
The BA facilitator role provides process to group settings and avoids participating in content
There are two elements to requirement sessions:–Content: what is being discussed
–Process: how it is being discussed

The BA facilitator focuses on the journey of the stakeholders in determining requirements, rather than the requirements themselves
