Executive Workshop: Business Analysis

1+/- Day

What is your best option concerning Business Analysis?

Business Analysis is becoming a recognized organizationally specialty. The International Institute for Business Analysis (IIBA) has published the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) and established the Certified Business Analyst Professional (CBAP) credential. So, how should your organization embrace Business Analysis? Who should be Business Analysts (BAs)? Where should BAs be placed in the organizational structure? What should be the BAs' responsibilities? And how should BAs relate to the other roles you have already defined?

Regardless of the structure of your organization; no matter if you are the champion for Business Analysis or are responding to others; whatever your team members' current level of knowledge or understanding about Business Analysis; this workshop will help you to quickly identify the issues and make an appropriate decision about how to respond.

This workshop is normally one full day. But depending upon your individual need, it can be tailored back to a half-day, or up to two or three days.

During this workshop, you will:

  • Fill in any knowledge gaps about Business Analysis that you or others may have
  • Frame the issues surrounding the decisions to be made
  • Examine the impacts of the Business Analysis processes on those issues and the organizaiton

  • (Optionally) plan the first steps you will take
