Collaborate with the Team

Proposal is a document that is created by the entire team. Not only, business analyst but also other team members such as project manager, coach, or even customer. The team should contribute for the proposal. on this step, we should provide

Creating a draft of document is an essential steps for business analyst. In order to do that you should consider several things that you need to include in your proposal which are:

Send your first draft to the customer and get a feedback from them. By obtaining a feedback you will:
