You study and rank each alternative. You are performing which task?
a. Compare solution alternatives.
b. Assess organizational readiness.
c. Assess proposed solution.
d. Evaluate solution performance.
c. Assess proposed solution.
BABOK7.1 description: "Solution assessment may be performed on a single solution or to compare multiple proposed solutions."

a. Business and non-functional.
b. Stakeholder and solution.
c. Functional, non-functional, and transition.
d. Business, functional, and non-functional.

c. Allocate requirements to designers and/or developers.
d. Allocate requirements to solution components and releases.
d. Allocate requirements to solution components and releases.

a. Business analysis solution assessment plan.
b. Organizational structure.
c. Solution scope.
d. Solution assessment recommendation.
b. Organizational structure.
BABOK 7.2.4.
Solution components may include:
Structure of the organization, including interactions between the organization, its customers, and its suppliers
Which factors will be most helpful to consider during release planning?
a. Business analysis metrics, key performance indications.
b. Resource constraints, which components deliver the greatest benefit, the competence of the testers.
c. Project budget, schedules, ability of organization to absorb change.
d. Project budget, resource constraints, project manager preference.
c. Project budget, schedules, ability of organization to absorb change.
BABOK 7.2.4.
There are many factors that will guide these decisions, such as the overall project budget, the need to implement a solution or parts of the solution by a certain date, resource constraints, training schedule and ability for the business to absorb changes within a defined timeframe.
Part of assessing organizational readiness is cultural assessment. Which of the following is not part of cultural assessment:
a. Assess willingness of stakeholder groups to accept change.
b. Determine if stakeholders understand why the change is occurring.
c. Determine if stakeholders want the change to be successful.
d. Assess the attitudes of different cultures towards change.
d. Assess the attitudes of different cultures towards change.
BABOK 7.3.4.1.
Determine whether stakeholder groups genuinely want the change to be successful. Assess the beliefs, attitudes and feelings common to key stakeholder groups and the willingness of those stakeholder groups to accept a change. Determine whether stakeholders understand the reasons that a new solution is being implemented, whether they view that solution as something that will be beneficial, and they understand the reasons why a new solution is required.
Operational assessment means:
a. Evaluate whether stakeholders are prepared to make use of the solution.
b. Assess impact of business analysis to the organization.
c. Evaluate whether stakeholders are physically capable of operating the equipment.
d. Evaluate alternative solutions and recommend effect on operational aspects of the organization.
a. Evaluate whether stakeholders are prepared to make use of the solution.
BABOK 7.3.4.2.
Determine whether the organization is able to take advantage of the capabilities provided by the new solution, and evaluate whether stakeholders are prepared to make use of the new solution. Determine if training has been performed, whether new policies and procedures have been defined, whether IT systems required to support it are in place, and whether the solution is capable of performing at a required level.
Force field analysis is a technique to assess the organizational readiness. Force field analysis is a:
a. Conflict-resolution technique that allows for a designated stakeholder to "choose sides," when stakeholders disagree.
b. Technique related to the type of influence that makes use of coercion, and studies the affects of coercion on stakeholders resisting change.
c. Graphical method for depicting forces that support and oppose change.
d. Technique for analyzing the effect of change on teams who are geographically
dispersed.
c. Graphical method for depicting forces that support and oppose change.
Definition of the technique. BABOK 7.3.5.2.
Force field analysis is a graphical method for depicting the forces that support and oppose a change. It involves identifying the forces that support and oppose a change, depicting them on opposite sides of a line, and then estimating the strength of each force in order to assess which set of forces are stronger. Once this analysis is complete, the next step is to look for ways to strengthen the forces that support the desired outcome or generate new forces.
Transition requirements are:
a. Unlike other requirements because they are no longer relevant after implementation.
b. Also known as implementation requirements because they defme the implementation needs.
c. Also known as solution requirements because they de:fme how the solution will be designed, built, tested, and implemented.
d. Unlike other requirements because they remain relevant after implementation.
a. Unlike other requirements because they are no longer relevant after implementation.
They're used for things like running parallel systems and are no longer relevant once the solution is fully implemented. BABOK 7.4.2.
What tasks are part of Solution Assessment and Validation?
Assess Proposed Solution
Allocate Requirements
Assess Organizational Readiness
Define Transition Requirements
Validate Solution
Evaluate Solution Performance

b. Limit available options
c. They don't play a role
d. They increase the cost
b. Limit available options
