The goal of this project is to show our business analyst skills by creating a scope, use case, data schema, and a prototype based on our previous experience, and to put the skills we learned this semester into practice with a real-life and personal scenario.
In this project, I built a prototype based on my previous work experience as an SAT tutor. The prototype improves the current contact system to include a customizable request for counseling that saves time. The request for counseling cuts down actual time of each counseling session by having the student fill in a form that briefly describes his/her current academic situation. This is the first time I reflected on my work experience in the perspective of a business analyst and try my hands at improving an existing system. The main thing I learned is how to collect pieces of information around me and turn them into a project direction. This project has been very helpful.
