BA Career Series Webinar: Context Diagrams

Thursday, January 19, 2023 -

Context Diagrams: Your first and strongest go-to-tool in your BA kit!

In our BA Career Series we will investigate specialized and complementary careers in business analysis, such as Agile Analyst, Business Relationship Management, Change Management, Product Owenership Analyst, Project Management and others.

The Context diagram is a key tool for use in every BA situation. It helps us focus on problems, capabilities, solutions, and stakeholders in a way that supports a breadth-before-depth thougth process that is perfect for business abalysts!

In this session we will talk about how using this technique will help you fully understand the scope of your solution at the right point in the project - the beginning! - so that you can collaborate with your project team, as well as, your internal & external customers. Context diagrams enable you to have powerful and collaborative conversations with your team: clarify scope boundaries with your project sponsor, scope and risk with your project manager, and technology solution issues with your technical professionals.


  • Understand the purpose and value of the context diagram technique.
  • Be able to start creating context diagrams during your BA work.
  • Apply agile analysis principles in support of this elicitation and modeling activity.
