Does data motivate you? Identifying key insights? Mapping out a winning business strategy? We are looking for a high performing Salesforce Business Analyst. This role is a project based, business improvement role.  Do you dream in improved processes and efficiencies? Here’s your chance to elicit, document and analyze requirements around business challenges – and produce data-driven solutions! The Salesforce Business Analyst is the interpreter between IT and business stakeholders to ensure the best results are achieved.


  • Communicate.
    • When you think about communication, you think about speaking and presenting, but listening is just as important.
    • A BA creates an environment for open conversations, and clearly communicates information back out to the appropriate teams.
  • Elicit.
    • The BA asks lots of questions, with the purpose of understanding project goals and getting clarification on what stakeholders want to accomplish.
    • They interview stakeholders, research information or processes related to the project, and observe teams as they work.  This sets the foundation for the project.
  • Document requirements.
    • Documenting requirements involves recording what was learned. This should be clear and concise, so the information can be easily understood by stakeholders and anyone else involved.
    • The BA must be thoughtful about how they choose to document requirements so they can easily share between teams.
  • Analyze Information.
    • Next, the BA reviews requirements and gets a sense of how to accomplish their team’s business goals.
    • They dive into more detail and use data insights to identify what the business needs to do to achieve the desired outcome.
  • Facilitate solutions.
    • Based on analysis, the BA then identifies options for solving business challenges.
    • Then they choose the best option and move forward with the best solution.
  • Implement solutions.
    • Once the BA comes up with a great business solution, they need to make sure it’s running smoothly and as expected. Are stakeholders seeing benefits? Is anything else needed to support the implementation? Essentially, the BA is a project manager at this point. It’s their job to make sure they reach the end goal, that it’s working well, and stakeholders are happy.
    • The BA keeps the end solution in mind and makes adjustments if anything goes off course.
  • Test.
    • Remember to test after the implementation!
    • At this time the BA builds training material to support the implemented solution, and records feedback to start eliciting requirements for the next iteration of the project, if needed.
