Where Are We Going?
The profession of business analysis is evolving to keep pace with the rapidly changing environment in which we live. As practitioners, are we overlooking the fundamentals of business analysis in search of new, shiny perspectives? While there are new approaches such as data analytics and customer experience to consider, we cannot deny the core precepts of business analysis. Jared will lead us on a journey to focus on the fundamentals in defining needs and outcomes while also exploring how data analysis and customer experience are modifying how we approach delivering value to our stakeholders.
# With all of the changes, fundamental skills remain critical
# Business analysis requires the use of data driven decisions
# Digital transformations require a new mindset
This session is relevant for all the attendees including who are new to the field.
