I am new to this community and please go easy on me.
I have been doing C# dev for like 10 years and recently I am considering a Business Analyst (BA) position. When I applied for the role, the manager asked me to do some little homework and I hope I can get some advice from you.
The preparation for the interview was to describe an existing cinema online booking system in 200 words.
What got me was the number of words as 200 words isnt much and it makes thing tricky. I want to get some advice on if there is any specific BA way to describe a system. How would you describe a system in 200 words? would you do that in point form?
I realised I didn't make my question very clear. I was asked to describe a particular cinema movie booking system, so it is not any booking system. I just didn't want to name the particular cinema in my question.
I can even try to explain my approach and hope everyone can tell me if this is a BA way to doing it.
- Evaluated the booking system and understood its booking process
- Drew up a UML Sequence diagram to note down the end-to-end booking steps
- Translating the booking process from diagram into words
Hope this is something acceptable for most
