What is a Business Analysis project?

A business analysis project involves examining an organization’s processes, systems, and operations to identify areas for improvement, optimization, or innovation. 

It typically includes gathering and analyzing data, defining business requirements, and recommending solutions to address identified issues or capitalize on opportunities. 

The goal is to enhance the efficiency, effectiveness, and profitability of the organization.
