Stage 3: Requirements
Before you begin work on this assignment, be sure you have read the Case Study and reviewed the
feedback received on your Stage 1 and 2 assignments.
Overview
As the business analyst in the CIO’s department of Maryland Technology Consulting (MTC), your next
task in developing your Business Analysis and System Recommendation (BA&SR) Report is to develop a
set of requirements for the hiring system.
Assignment – BA&SR Section III. Requirements
The first step is to review any feedback from previous stages to help improve the effectiveness of your
overall report and then add the new section to your report. Part of the grading criteria for Stage 4
includes evaluating if the document is a very effective and cohesive assemblage of the four sections, is
well formatted and flows smoothly from one section to the next. For this assignment, you will add
Section III of the Business Analysis and System Recommendation (BA&SR) Report to your Sections I and
II. In this section you will identify requirements for the new hiring system. This analysis leads into
Section IV. System Recommendation of the BA&SR (Stage 4 assignment) that will analyze a proposed IT
solution to ensure it meets MTC’s organizational strategy and fulfills its operational needs.
Using the case study, assignment instructions, Content readings, and external research, develop your
Section III. Requirements. The case study tells you that the executives and employees at Maryland
Technology Consultants (MTC) have identified a need for an effective and efficient applicant tracking or
hiring system. As you review the case study, use the assignment instructions to take notes to assist in
your analysis. In particular, look for information in the interviews to provide stakeholder interests and
needs.
Use the outline format, headings and tables provided and follow all formatting instructions below.
III.
Requirements
A.
Stakeholder Interests – Review the interest or objectives for the new hiring system for
each stakeholder listed below based on his or her organizational role and case study
information. Consider how the technology will improve how his/her job is done; that is, identify
what each of the stakeholders needs the system to do. Then to complete the table below, use
information from the stakeholder interviews and identify one significant challenge or problem
for each stakeholder related to the current hiring process (not their future expectations). Then
explain how a system could address their problems. Do not define what that position does in the
organization. (Provide an introductory sentence for this section, copy the table below and
complete the two columns with 1-2 complete sentences for each role in each column.)

4. Director of Human Resources
5. Manager of Recruiting
6. Recruiters
7. Administrative Assistant
8. Hiring Manager (Functional
supervisor the new employee
would be working for.)
B.
Defining Requirements – The next step is to identify the essential requirements for the
information system. In addition to the stakeholder interests identified above, review the Case
Study, especially the interviews, highlighting any statements that tell what the person expects or
needs the system to do. User requirements express specifically what the user needs the system
to do. This can be in terms of tasks the users need to perform, data they need to input, what
the system might do with that data input, and output required. System performance
requirements express how the system will perform in several performance areas and security.
As a member of the CIO’s organization, you will use your professional knowledge to Identify 5
User Requirements (including one specifically related to reporting) and 5 System Performance
Requirements (including 2 security-related requirements). Refer to Week 5 content on
requirements; security requirements are covered in Week 6. Additional research can expand
your knowledge of these areas.
Once you have identified the 10 requirements, evaluate each one using the criteria below and
create 10 well-written requirements statements for the new hiring system.
The requirement statement:
• Is a complete sentence, with a subject (system) and predicate (intended result, action or
condition).
• Identifies only one requirement; does not include the words “and,” “also,” “with,” and “or.”
• For User Requirements, states what tasks the system will support or perform.
• For System Performance Requirements, states how the system will perform.
• Includes a measure or metric that can be used to determine whether the requirement is
met (time or quantity), where appropriate.

Is stated in positive terms and uses “must” (not “shall,” “may” or “should”); “the system
must xxxx” not “the system must not xxx”.
Avoids the use of terms that cannot be defined and measured, such as “approximately,”
“robust,” “user friendly,” etc.
Is achievable and realistic; avoids terms such as “100% uptime,” or “no failures”.
For a full requirement specification, there will be many requirements statements; you only need
to provide the number of requirements identified for each category. Do not provide generic
statements but relate to the needs of MTC to improve its hiring process.
(Provide an introductory sentence, copy the table, and complete the Requirements Statement
and Stakeholder columns. No additional information should be entered into the first column,
Requirement ID.)

Formatting Your Assignment
Consider your audience – you are writing in the role of an MTC business analyst and your audience is
MTC and your boss, the CIO. Don’t discuss MTC as if the reader has no knowledge of the organization.
Use third person consistently throughout the report. In third person, the writer avoids the pronouns I,
we, my, and ours. The third person is used to make the writing more objective by taking the individual,
the “self,” out of the writing. This method is very helpful for effective business writing, a form in which
facts, not opinion, drive the tone of the text. Writing in the third person allows the writer to come across
as unbiased and thus more informed.

In Stage 3, you are preparing the third part of a 4-stage report. Use the structure, headings, and
outline format provided here for your report. Use the numbering/lettering in the assignment
instructions as shown below.
III.
Requirements
A. Stakeholder Interests
B. Defining Requirements










Begin with Sections I and II, considering any feedback received, and add to it Section III.
Write a short concise paper: Use the recommendations provided in each area for length of
response. It’s important to value quality over quantity. Section III should not exceed 3 pages.
Content areas should be double spaced; table entries should be single-spaced.
To copy a table: Move your cursor to the table, then click on the small box that appears at the
upper left corner of the table to highlight the table; right click and COPY the table; put the cursor in
your paper where you want the table and right click and PASTE the table.
Ensure that each of the tables is preceded by an introductory sentence that explains what is
contained in the table, so the reader understands why the table has been included.
Continue to use the title page created in Stage 1 that includes: The company name, title of report,
your name, Course and Section Number, and date of this submission.
Use at least two resources with APA formatted citation and reference for this Stage 3 assignment.
Use at least one external reference and one from the course content. Course content should be
from the class reading content, not the assignment instructions or case study itself. For information
on APA format, refer to Content>Course Resources>Writing Resources.
Add the references required for this assignment to the Reference Page. Additional research in the
next stage will be added to this as you build the report. The final document should contain all
references from all stages appropriately formatted and alphabetized.
Running headers are not required for this report.
Compare your work to the Grading Rubric below to be sure you have met content and quality
criteria.

The company has an enormous task that needs an automated system to deliver satisfactorily. The current manual process is technically unable to hire 75 new employees in a short time before the commencement of the new contracts. The most viable solution to Maryland Technology Consulting (MTC) problem is the implementation of automated employee hiring systems that would automatically assess and recommend the most qualified candidates from a pool of IT consulting job applicants. MTC requires the system as a near-term solution to address the immense pressure in workforce acquisition and retaining (Gough, 2007). The HR director intents to hire employees, locally and internationally, which is not possible in a manual hiring process that requires candidates to be within the US territory. The conceptualized solution is the acquisition of commercial off-the-shelf software that addresses the HR department challenge at hand. Process Analysis A. Hiring Process As the business analyst, acting on behalf of the CIO, I have applied an impactful strategy to solve the HR department challenge. The task at hand, hiring new employees, requires systematic problem analyses that address concepts to do with system requirements, the viability of the proposed solution, and the implementation plan for the new HR hiring system. The various managers in the company acknowledge the need at hand and are willing to contribute to the development of a new hiring stem for use in the current challenge and going to the future (Gough, 2007). As a business analyst, I conducted interviews with various managers at different BUSINESS ANALYSIS AND SYSTEM RECOMMENDATION 3 levels to hear their views on the proposed system. CEO Samuel Johnson acknowledges the need to install a better hiring process because he expects the client to get the best from the company. The Chief Financial officer is excited at the initiative, reinstates the need for viability. She recommends that it would be better if the company would integrate the system with the existing electronic payroll system. MTC Hiring Process As-Is Process Responsible MTC Position (Part 1) (Part 1) To-Be Process – How the System Will Support and Improve the hiring process (Part 2) Business Benefits of Improved Process (Align with MTC’s overall business strategy and needs.) (Part 2) A more efficient submission process decreases the time needed to receive and begin processing applications. This will present a positive image to potential employees and help MTC compete for top IT talent. MTC will take a short time to recruit the employees needed in various work locations. 1. Recruiter receives application from job hunter via Postal Service Mail. Recruiter The system will receive applications via on-line submission through MTC Employment Website and store in the applicant database within the hiring system. 2. The manual recruitment process involves only four recruiters hence limited recruiting capacity. Recruiters The system, which includes the BambooHR software, will coordinate hiring in various strategic places where employees are needed. The system can run parallel hiring, depending on BUSINESS ANALYSIS AND SYSTEM RECOMMENDATION 3. Manual censoring process of the received applications Recruiters 4. Manual determination of the most suitable candidates through evaluation of the qualifications. Recruiters 5. Shortlisting the most qualified candidates based on the recruiter’s assessment Recruiters 6. Routing those applications and resumes via interoffice mail to the respective functional/hiring manager Administrative Assistant, the recruiting manager, the recruiter, HR Director, and the Hiring Manager the office that needs the employees. The system will reduce work redundancy that includes reading through the CVs in search of specific applicant qualifications. The system will read the keywords in the electronic copy of applicants' CVs and determine suitability for the applied post. The new hiring system has automatic application ranking capability based on searching keywords that define a qualified candidate. The system will rank the applicants and shortlist the required number. The system will automatically determine the most qualified candidates by analytical data analyses and processing. The BambooHR system facilitates multitasking and realtime capabilities that enhance the sharing of recruitment of information to all involved offices through a computer system. 4 The BambooHR software will censor all the hundreds of applications in a very short time to facilitate faster shortlisting. The software will also be useful in future mass recruitment in the Company. The system will eliminate redundancy the redundancy of reading hundreds of applications and hence free some employees to concentrate on other deliverables. The system will enhance efficiency in selecting the best team to face the one on one interviewing panel. Realtime data access will eliminate the need to share information manually to var ...
