You mean Use Cases?

I later added a business layer to the t-model:

Again, WikiPedia has got some of the answers, for example their definition
of Business Analyst (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_analyst) lists
some of the skills and responsibilities in a structured way.

You may want to look at other titles and see how they compare.

Good luck!
