I'm sorry to hear this. I'm sure you'll find some of your most valuable skills are more 'soft' but are much harder 'earnt' though your experience.
I hope this course helps you acquire some of the new skills you are seeking.

It's difficult to say not knowing the industry or the role to which you responded. It is USEFUL to have a knowledge of the software development lifecycle. By this, I mean the various phases from analysis through to design. Equally, it could be beneficial to know some Agile approaches.

However, I don't think a BA needs to be technical in the sense of knowing programming languages/HTML/databases etc.

Some employers do actually ask for these sorts of skills - my advice - keep away from those roles.

Thanks Detris. I'm glad it's been of use. Of course it's for BA's who specialise in producing IT systems where the user interface is important for success.
There are other types of BA activities too - business processes; data intensive IT systems (where use cases aren't relevant)...

Understand the scope and 'gather' all documentation on the project first - business case, objectives, scope, high level requirements.
Now move to the actors. Call centre operatives, supervisors, managers. Are there customers who are actors? They definitely are if they can interact through IVR, chat or any other interface direct to the system in questions.

This is all covered in my Mastering Use Cases course - http://businessanalystmentor.com/mastering-use-ca...

Good luck Mahenderan!
