Планирование бизнес-анализа в компании с применением методологии Agile
The main output of planning the business analysis process is formation of a certain approach to business analysis execution. Such approach describes a process that should be followed during business analysis: terms of completing the tasks, methods used, as well as planned results of the project. Business analysts should pay attention on compliance between requirements and business needs, during the whole iterative planning process, especially regarding developing and transformation of business goals over time. The novelty of the paper is that authors developed an adaptive approach to business analysis planning using Agile methodology. This approach may provide competitive advantage for a company, in rapidly changing and complex environments.
In recent years, the world has become much more complex and unpredictable. A special acronym “VUCA,” meaning “volatile,” “unknown,” “complex,” and “ambiguous,” has even appeared to describe it. The situation changes unexpectedly and rapidly, the crisis becomes the norm of life, and the rate of change inexorably increases. In modern management, the implementation of projects that respond flexibly to the demands of a volatile market is receiving increasing demand.
This VUCA world requires employees able to apply Agile principles to their work. Training in the Agile approach has become common for employees and leaders of large companies but also the governments such as Norway and New Zealand. Agile method education has been introduced at many universities including Cornell University and Northern Arizona universities.
L.N. Lyadova, R.A. Nesterov ANALYTICAL MODELS DEVELOPMENT BASED ON THE VISUAL MODELS OF BUSINESS PROCESSES Abstract: An approach to transformation of the business processes models, created with visual modelling tools, to the analytical models provided in the form suitable for the analysis with mathematical software tools is described.
In this chapter, we discuss software development methodologies. These are adaptive process frameworks adjustable to software product size and scope. They usually include a set of methods, principles and techniques, and software development tools. Each of the methodologies can implement any of the lifecycle models. We discuss the difference between formal and agile methodologies. The formal methodologies include more artifacts; they have a rich set of complex processes, which include larger workflows and smaller activities. For each activity, every role assigned to it produces a deliverable. In crisis conditions, such as hardly formalizable problems, rapidly changing requirements and other uncertainties, agile methodologies, which are more adaptive and flexible in terms of artifacts, are applicable. The agile methodologies rely on self-disciplined and self-manageable teams, and consequently they are more constrained in terms of human-related factors. Similar to lifecycle models, there is no “silver bullet” in software development methodologies. Due to rigorous processes and more artifacts, formal methodologies are suitable for large-scale product development. Agile methodologies require special techniques and high level of discipline; otherwise, they can likely result in a low quality of software production.
An approach to transformation of the business processes models, created with visual modelling tools, to the analytical models provided in the form suitable for the analysis with mathematical software tools is described. The procedure of process models transformation is described. De-scription of the developed software is presented. Key words: business processes modelling, visual modelling languages, model transformation, business process analysis.
This book consists of selected papers presented in the framework of the 16th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2018), held in Stockholm, Sweden, September 24-26, 2018. The BIR conference series was established 16 years ago as the initiative of some German and Swedish universities with the aim of supporting the global forum for researchers in business informatics for their collaboration and exchange of results.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy. So it is necessary to create a new method of valuation based on the new main sources of company's success that is its intellectual capital.
The manual is intended for students of Department of computer engineering MIEM HSE. In the textbook based on the courses "Economics of firm" and "the development strategy of the organization." Discusses the key conceptual and methodological issues of the theory and practice of Economics and development planning of the organization. The use of textbooks will enable students: to analyze key performance indicators, and use the tools of strategic analysis with reference to concrete situations in contemporary Russian and international business. Special attention is paid to the methods and systems of information support of the life support functions of business organizations and management methodology of innovation and investment. An Appendix contains source data for analysis of competition in a particular industry.
The paper provides a number of proposed draft operational guidelines for technology measurement and includes a number of tentative technology definitions to be used for statistical purposes, principles for identification and classification of potentially growing technology areas, suggestions on the survey strategies and indicators. These are the key components of an internationally harmonized framework for collecting and interpreting technology data that would need to be further developed through a broader consultation process. A summary of definitions of technology already available in OECD manuals and the stocktaking results are provided in the Annex section.
Over the last two decades national policy makers drew special attention to the implementation of policy tools which foster international cooperation in the fields of science, technology, and innovation. In this paper, we look at cases of Russian-German collaboration to examine the initiatives of the Russian government aimed at stimulating the innovation activity of domestic corporations and small and medium enterprises. The data derived from the interviews with companies’ leaders show positive effects of bilateral innovative projects on the overall business performance alongside with major barriers hindering international cooperation. To overcome these barriers we provide specific suggestions relevant to the recently developed Russian Innovation Strategy 2020.
