Business Requirements Analysis: Clearly Agreeing What You're Going to Deliver

© iStockphotocinobyAvoid a mismatch in what you deliver, and what the client wants. Every new activity, every new product, every new project in the workplace is created in response to a business need.  Yet we often find ourselves in situations where, despite spending tremendous time and resources, there's a mismatch between what has been designed and what is actually needed.

here’s a real-life example of a great cover letter (with before and after versions!)

I had sworn off sharing more examples of real-life resumes and cover letters for a while because when I’ve done it in the past, I’ve found it supremely frustrating that people want to tear them apart and quibble with details. But a reader just sent me a cover letter that I can’t resist posting, especially because it comes with a “before” version and the “after” version she created after reading the cover letter advice here. As she says herself, the difference is dramatic.
