Return to Business Analysis Define Business Structure Task
The organisation structure of a traditional business and the structure of the business processes often differ. The business processes that produce the value to the customer often run across departments rather than following the flow of the most important processes. In more modern organisations, the structure of the organisation has been optimised to follow the flow of the process.
Modelling the structure of the organisation in terms of the business workers, their responsibilities, relationships and the departments they belong to, can help understand the most appropriate structure for the organisation as part of business process re-engineering and improvement. It also provides candidate system actors and use cases for the system requirements model and helps the business analyst to think about potential areas for automation.
