A person acting as business designer needs to be a good facilitator and have adequate communication skills. Knowledge of the business domain is helpful, but not necessary for everyone acting in this role. The business designer needs to be familiar with tools used to capture the business models.

A business-process analyst is prepared to:

  • Understand customer and user requirements, their strategies, and their goals. 
  • Facilitate modeling of the target organization. 
  • Discuss and facilitate a business engineering effort, if needed. 
  • Take part in defining requirements on the end-product of the project.
