How does "who, what, where, when, why, and how" relate to my plan for conducting the Business Analysis?

How does "who, what, where, when, why, and how" relate to my plan for conducting the Business Analysis?
When planning an appropriate approach to your next project, take time to answer these key questions about "who, what, where, when, why, and how":
Ask questions such as… In order to…
Who Who are the stakeholders? How do they feel about the project? Shape your stakeholder analysis and communication efforts
What Can the solution be divided into logical and functional aspects? Categorize the requirements and break down the work
Where Are the stakeholders and team members in a single physical location? Break down the work in a way that is most efficient for those involved
When How much time is available for the requirements process? Sequence and prioritize the requirements activities
Why Which specific benefits of the project are expected out of the project? Prioritize the requirements as well as anticipate and measure the benefits
How Which templates or tools are available for organizing, managing, and communicating the requirements? Plan the documentation and communication activities

Now with an understanding of the "who, what, where, when, why, and how" of the project, you can begin to articulate the "how-long," using traditional project management estimating methods and/or estimating techniques for agile projects, which are surprisingly similar to business analyst efforts.
