Elicitation is one of those areas that is both extremely simple and extremely complex. In the BABOK 2.0, the purpose of Conduct Elicitation Activity (outlined in section 5.2) is:

 Meet with stakeholders to elicit information regarding their needs.

Simple, right? But within this short task, the detail is in the techniques, and that’s where it can start to seem complex.

The BABOK Identifies 9 Elicitation Techniques
Here are the 9 elicitation techniques defined by the BABOK for business analysts:

Brainstorming
Document Analysis
Focus Groups
Interface Analysis
Interviews
Observation
Prototyping
Requirements Workshops

Brainstorming – The purpose of gathering your stakeholders for brainstorming is “to produce numerous new ideas, and to derive from them themes for further analysis.

Document analysis – Document analysis involves gathering and reviewing all existing documentation that is pertinent to your business objective or that may hold data related to a relevant solution.

Focus Group – Focus groups consist of a mix of pre-qualified stakeholders who gather to offer input on the business need at hand and its potential solutions.

Interface Analysis – An interface analysis carefully analyses and deconstructs the way that a user interacts with an application, or the way one application interacts with another.

Interviews – One-on-one interviews are among the most popular types of requirements elicitation, and for good reason: they give an analyst the opportunity to discuss in-depth a stakeholder’s thoughts and get his or her perspective on the business need and the feasibility of potential solutions.

Observation (job shadowing) – Observation is quite helpful when considering a project that will change or enhance current processes.

Prototyping (storyboarding, navigation flow, paper prototyping, screen flows) – Prototyping is especially valuable for stakeholders such as business owners and end users who may not understand all of the technical aspects of requirements, but will better relate to a visual representation of the end product.

Requirements workshops – A requirements workshop involves gathering a previously identified stakeholders in a structured setting for a defined amount of time in order to elicit, refine, and/or edit requirements.

Survey/questionnaire
– While they preclude the opportunity for in-person, ad hoc conversations, surveys are useful for quickly gathering data from a large group of participants.

Many new BAs feel they should be using all of the techniques and are worried they aren’t getting elicitation right. Or, they think about their experience in this area and it seems that most of the time they get information about stakeholder needs through casual conversations and reviews, so their experience with elicitation seems a bit informal.

This is an area of business analysis that it’s very common for professionals to have relevant experience in. It’s also an area where even the most senior BAs never stop improving.
