Systems Structure, Strategy and Planning
If you ask the average systems analyst to describe and define the work that he or she does, you will probably receive a very vague answer. This is not because the work is too complex or difficult to describe (it is not, as this book attempts to show), but simply because most systems analysts themselves do not have a very clear idea of how the way they do their work is structured. In most organisations it is the backlog and urgency of outstanding tasks which tend to define what the systems analyst does next. So systems development often becomes a matter of achieving a series of purely short-term goals, and the methodology of systems analysis is overlooked.
