Chapter 2. Meeting Guide

This chapter provides guidelines for meetings that a BA may be required to facilitate or participate in over the course of an IT project. For an overview of where each type of meeting fits into the life cycle, please see the Overview of BA Activities Throughout the Life Cycle chapter in this handbook.

Please note that not every requirements-gathering and verification event needs to be in the form of a group meeting. See the “Requirements Investigation Methods” checklist in the Tips and Checklists chapter for alternatives. The stakeholders, questions, and deliverables that appear in these guidelines apply regardless of which investigation method—or combination of methods—is chosen.
