Exam CBAP topic 1 question 375 discussion

Actual exam question from IIBA's CBAP
Question #: 375
Topic #: 1
[All CBAP Questions]

A popular department store chain wants to make computer upgrades as well as conduct a major remodeling effort to increase revenue to all their 100 stores over the next 2 years. The remodeling will occur in two phases. The two phases are required at each store and can be completed in any order, but each phase must be fully completed before the next phase can begin. Phase 1 will take approximately 32 weeks and will not require a store to be temporarily closed. Phase 2 will take approximately 20 weeks and will require a store to be temporarily closed.
In order to keep inventory level and total revenue for the department store chain at an operational level, 75% of the stores must remain open to the public at all times. Against the board of director's advice, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) made a decision to start and complete the top 25 revenue-producing stores in the first year to get those stores remodeled and fully operational.
A business analyst (BA) has been brought in to help with planning the project and gathering requirements.
What tool will help the BA understand the changes needed to keep the majority of the stores open?

  • A. Capability Model
  • B. Business capability analysis
  • C. Transition State Diagram
  • D. Stakeholder Matrix

According to BABOK: Capability: models focus on features or functions of an enterprise or a solution. Techniques used to represent capabilities include Business Capability Analysis, Functional Decomposition, and Prototyping

Selected Answer: C
A transition state diagram is a tool that helps the BA understand the changes needed to keep the majority of the stores open. A transition state diagram is a visual representation of the current state, the future state, and the intermediate states of a business process or a system. It shows the activities, events, triggers, and outcomes that occur in each state, as well as the transitions and dependencies between states. A transition state diagram can help the BA plan and manage the remodeling project by identifying the optimal sequence and timing of the phases, the risks and issues that may arise in each state, the impact of the changes on the stakeholders and the customers, and the measures to ensure business continuity and operational efficiency throughout the project.

Its B. Business capability analysis involves assessing the organization's capabilities and aligning them with strategic objectives. In this scenario, understanding the capabilities required to keep the stores operational during remodeling is crucial for planning the project effectively.

Selected Answer: C
This is a strategic project... so, in Strategy analysis KA there there is a lot of reference to transition states. Answer is C. BABOK v3 pg 125 For each transition state along the path to reaching the future state, the change strategy should clarify which parts of the solution are completed and which are not, as well as which parts of the value can be realized and which cannot.

Nope... C is incorrect. It is indeed B. Business capability analysis involves assessing the organization's capabilities and aligning them with strategic objectives. In this scenario, understanding the capabilities required to keep the stores operational during remodeling is crucial for planning the project effectively.

But Business Capacity Analysis is a Technique question asked for Tool. See BABOK V3 page 138 under Capacity.
