MOST analysis

Any successful change requires starting from a clear understanding of the organisation’s current business situation. MOST analysis can help to achieve this. This technique is covered in detail on the BCS business analyst courses.

MOST stands for:

  • Mission;
  • Objectives;
  • Strategy;
  • Tactics.


This is usually a statement describing what business are the organisation is in, and what it is trying to achieve.


These are the specific goals against which the organisation’s achievements can be measured.


This is the medium to long term approach to achieve the organisation’s mission and objectives.


The short-term means by which the strategy will be executed.
