 TOPIC:  Requirements Traceability - the tie that binds

J. John Jones

SPEAKER: J. John Jones, CBAP™, Business Systems Analyst, UPS Supply Chain Solutions 


People seek to make connections of items to make sense of them in a larger context.  As children (or adults), we connect the dots to form a picture of something recognizable.  As a business analyst, we connect requirements and other analysis outputs to get the bigger picture of an initiative and to check the completeness of our work.  We will explore how IIBA® has defined requirement traceability, how traceability works, and the benefits of the practice to the current project and future analysis. 



John began his career in the days of bear skins, flint knives, mainframes and PL/1 as a programmer at Eastman Kodak.  Over time, his role expanded to designing the code, then eventually to talk to the business contact directly about the requested change.  Without fanfare or a change in title, John became a business analyst.  Through his 36 year career with Kodak, John worked with business functions of billing, credit, marketing to the federal government and consumers, and e-commerce with business and consumers.

A shift in Kodak’s business shifted John to his current position as Business Systems Analyst with UPS – Supply Chain Solutions.  In his current assignment, John is in the portfolio’s BA Practice, mentoring others in the best practices of business analysis and evaluating how they are applying those practices in their work.

John achieved the Certified Business Analysis Professional™ designation in May 2014 and UPS BA Certification in August 2014.
