A Simulationist's Framework for Business Analysis 

Business analysis can be carried out in different ways using different tools and can be many things to many people, which can lead to confusion. Bob's experiences led him to develop a framework for applying the BABOK's general concepts in a specific way.  He shows how his framework maps to the BABOK knowledge areas.
