CBAP Business Analysis And Planning

  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. When performing root cause analysis as part of the Validate Solution task - what stakeholder may be involved?

2. This prototype seeks to quickly uncover and clarify interface requirements using simple tools - sometimes just paper and pencil. The focus is on functionality that is not easily elicited by other techniques - has conflicting viewpoints - or is diffic

3. What are the elements of the task - Define Solution Scope?

4. Confidence in the decision analysis process that a decision is correct - new information or alternative that cause a decision to be revisited are new and not simply overlooked - decisions are effective in addressing underlying problem - impact of unc

8. What techniques are used in the task Prepare for Elicitation?

9. While eliciting requirements it is important to guard against scope creep - This activity will ensure that the requirements should be included since they meet the business goal/objectives.

10. Most optimistic estimate; most pessimistic estimate; most likely estimate

11. Provides an organized approach to tracking - management - and resolution of defects - issues - problems - and risks throughout business analysis activities. Management of issues is important so that they can be resolved in a timely manner to ensure s

12. Understanding of the business architecture of the organization that is being analyzed. Understanding business models (generates profit) - org structure - relationships between business units and the persons who occupy key stakeholder positions.

13. Forecast the cost and effort involved in pursuing a course of action. Used to develop a better understanding of the possible range of costs and effort associated with any initiative

14. What are the inputs for the task - Evaluate Solution Performance?

15. Use of a similar project as the basis for developing estimates for the current project. Also known as "top-down" estimating. This is usually done at the beginning of the project or project phase and more detailed estimates follow as more is known.

16. Estimating relies on the expertise of those who have performed the work in the past. These experts can be internal or external to the project team or to the organization.

17. Requires the team to focus on examining the premises - assumptions - observations and expectations of the team members. This type of conflict can have a beneficial effect of strengthening the foundations of the analysis and the solution.

20. What is the output of the task - Manage Requirements Traceability?

21. Measures progress towards a strategic goal or objective.

22. The minimum set of requirements that must be met in order for a particular solution to be worth implementing.

23. This prototype extends the initial interface requirements into a fully functioning system and requires a specialized prototyping tool or language.

24. What is the output of the task - Assess Proposed Solution?

25. What are the Primitive Data Elements?

26. What are the inputs to the task Conduct Stakeholder Analysis?

27. An organized structure for the requirements and a documented set of relationships between them. Is used so the analyst and stakeholders know where a specific requirement should be found. Should have a clear implicit scope (clear to the stakeholders w
