  • Anticipating and planning for future problems, and viewing a product or problem from the stakeholder’s perspective.
  • Documenting business processes, then evaluating where automation would improve efficiencies and where it would just add complexity
  • Eliciting business requirements, then translating those into functional, technical, or system requirements.
  • Designing meaningful and usable functionality, user interface, and information architectures that stand the test of time.
  • Integrating multiple projects into a successful program.
  • Accurately predicting how policy changes will impact technical implementation and community experience.
