Keynote: Business Analysis in the Future which is Now. Managing Requirements in a Complex World

Life used to be easy. There were project managers, business analysts, coders and testers. Everyone knew what they were doing. Nowadays we also have UX Researchers, UX Designers, System Thinkers, Service Designers, Product Managers and Product Owners… and they all seem to be doing the job we used to call business analyst. Add into the mix that globalisation and the internet have add a huge serving of complexity into the mix and its no wonder most of us are not sure on our role, or even how to manage the requirements. Chris will hope to clear some of that uncertainty. He will explain how the different roles fit together and the work that needs to be done. Chris will briefly introduce the Cynefin Framework to help you understand complexity and its implications for the future of the Business Analysis.
