Salesforce Business Analyst
A Business Analyst gets invested in understanding how the organisation and the team currently operate and helps them to evaluate and improve their management processes and KPI’s.
They facilitate conversations to elicit what the goals are, what the pain points are, and help the team to define their future vision for management processes and performance monitoring. They will produce documentation that summarises the requirements to support the system design.
It suits someone with a passion for management consultancy who likes to improve business processes and enable the client to realise the key performance indicators that are outlined in their business plan and CRM strategy.
Typically business analysts will have salesforce product knowledge as well as sound business management experience. We would recommend training in Business Analysis, Requirements Engineering and Process Modelling.

Typical Salesforce Business Analyst Day
You start the day attending a meeting with the senior managers to understand the current challenges and issues related to performance of the team to assess priorities to troubleshoot. The Sales team have data integrity issues which is hampering sales performance and this is now a top priority.
You spend the rest of the morning analysing the Salesforce system and the users to assess data quality issues that have been flagged to better understand the causes of the issues occurring.
You shadow members of the Sales team to assess how they currently conduct their job and use the Salesforce system everyday, to map out the process and identify new ways to improve the process or system using Salesforce functionality and technology.
You’ve documented the processes and written up the new functional and technical requirements to discuss with the Sales Management Team.
End of Day
You send your findings over to the Sales Team and ask for their approval to understand some additional changes to the system and training with end users to solve the problems arising.
