A design strategy is a set of activities an organization engages in to design, deliver, and develop a product or service that reflects the constraints of business goals, user needs, and the affordances of technology.

As a business analyst, I help stakeholders and decision makers discover what they want and provide them with information that assists them in making informed decisions. Then I communicate that vision to developers and others who will work on the project.
