For the purpose of this project I’ve acted as a business analyst for my client and the overall project goal was to use requirements elicitation techniques to gather information and statistics and report back to the client with the information I’ve gathered. With the information gathered I will be looking to find way to improve the football club and looking especially at how technology impacts the football club
Client: St Malachys Football Club. The client I have worked with is an amateur football club St Malachys Fc. The main reason I’ve worked with them is because I’m a member of the club and currently play for the senior team. I see first-hand just how the club is run, who is in charge of each aspect of the club. Before I started this project I already had some ideas on how I thought the club could improve and how certain operations of the club could be altered to make the running of the club more efficient. This project will cover a full range of topics including a look at the stakeholders involved with the club, the need of the club that comes with the project as well as the an explanation of the requirements elicitation techniques I decided to use during the project, an explanation on why I choose them and a full and comprehensive analysis of the results gathered from these techniques.
To improve the overall football club with the aim to increase memberships, increase social media usage, create an online presence, become more present in the local community, better the form of communication between coaches and players, increase coaching abilities, better financial structure including sponsorship and internal funding (club shop). Requirement elicitation techniques will be used to gain information and opinion from stakeholders as to how to go about meeting the need of the project for it be a success.
The following are a list of ways to meet the need of the club and will be looked at and researched in detail:
- Website (Results, league tables, forum)
- Funding (internal: Lotto, golf society etc...)
- Subscriptions paid through the website to make things easier for managers and the treasurer
- Online coaching courses and tutorials for players and managers
- Club shop on the website
- Weekly newsletter (online)
- Social Media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc.…)
