Where should all of this information actually be stored? A. WBS B. Terminology register C. Data dictionary D. Business analysis register
Answer: C Explanation: Data dictionaries or glossaries are used to formally identify and define all terminology used by the organization or organizational unit. Answer B is incorrect.

Answer: D Explanation: When business analysts perform the solution assessment process, they are measuring how closely the proposed solution meets the stakeholder requirements. Answer B is incorrect.

Solution assessment isn't concerned with the cost, but with the accuracy of the solution in light of the stakeholders' requirements.

Research each idea for time and cost. B. Record the ideas as requirements. C. Discuss each idea with the project manager. D. Rate the ideas.
Answer: D Explanation: Once the ideas have been recorded, then the business analyst should rate the ideas and distribute the list to the appropriate stakeholders. Answer B is incorrect.

Question: 6 According to 'A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge', when should the business analyst and an organization actually start requirements allocation? A. As soon as a budget has been created B. After approval of the requirements C. After the project charter D. As soon as the solution approach is determined
Answer: D Explanation: Requirements allocation typically begins early in the project lifecycle (as soon as the solution approach is determined) and will continue to be performed until all valid requirements are allocated. Allocation typically continues through design and construction of a solution. Answer C is incorrect. Requirements allocation doesn't have to wait until the project has been chartered. Answer B is incorrect. Approval of the requirements is good, but the solution scope for the requirements needs to created to begin allocating the requirements. Answer A is incorrect. The budget creation isn't linked to the requirements allocation process.
Question: 7 You are a business analyst in an organization that has recently embraced business analysis as part of its initiative for new projects. In this organization, there is not an organizational standard for tailoring business analysis duties and expectations.

Take charge and begin the business analysis activities, but document your approach to serve as a template for future business analysis initiatives. B. Work with the appropriate stakeholders to determine how the business analysis work should be completed. C. Define the organizational standard first. D. Create a business case for the need for organizational standards for business analysis.
Answer: B Explanation: The best answer is to work with the appropriate stakeholders to determine what business analysis activities should be done in the present initiative. Answer C is incorrect. There's not a need to define an organizational standard immediately, as this can evolve over time based on projects and business analysis experience in the organization. Answer D is incorrect. A business case isn't needed. Answer A is incorrect. While this answer is tempting, it does not address the cooperation and involvement of the stakeholders.
Question: 8 An organization has invested $750,000 into a technology to help secure, automate, and communicate customer ordering. The solution has worked well for the past six months, but a newer technology has been developed that surpasses the abilities of the current solution and solves many defects and issues the company has with the existing solution. Purchasing the newer solution, however, means that the company will have to discard the solution that's only been in place for the past six months. What term can be assigned to the monies already implemented into the existing solution? A. Cost of nonconformance B. Sunk costs C. Opportunity cost D. Cost-benefits
Explanation: The monies that have already been invested in the existing solution are called sunk costs. Sunk costs are the funds that have been "sunk" into the solution and are no longer available. Answer: C is incorrect. The opportunity cost is when there are two or more solutions to choose from, but only one can be selected. The opportunity cost is the total amount of the opportunities that cannot be selected. Answer A is incorrect. The cost of nonconformance describes the cost of not conforming to quality, such as lost sales, lost work, defects, and even safety considerations. Answer D is incorrect. It is a ratio to compare the costs of a solution to the benefits received for the costs.

Whiteboards
Answer: C Explanation: Voice mails are not appropriate for documenting the results of elicitation activities. Answer: B is incorrect.
