“It's all about working smarter. By using visual  business development and visual requirement specification, one avoids downtime.”

Visualising your IT system

Søren Lehn


19 March 2013


In his regular blog on, PA’s Søren Lehn, IT-enabled business transformation expert, speaks about visual requirement specification for IT systems. Søren explains how companies can use this technique to match the requirements of the entire business, including IT specialists, management and administrative staff, to the most suitable IT system.

“In order to identify a company’s needs and the specification of requirements as efficiently as possible, you need to visualise them in a model that imitates the system you wish to implement. This is the only way to ensure that the business, IT specialists and suppliers speak the same language. It helps to create an overview of functionalities, business processes and central screen displays,” says Søren, adding that defining what a company needs from a given IT system can be a complex task.

Søren elaborates further on how using visual requirement specification can help a company save time and money:“It’s all about working smarter. By using visual business development and visual requirement specification, one avoids downtime. The company also ensures that new IT systems purchased can actually be used by the business – not only by the IT specialists.
