This webinar, for both organisational leaders and practising business analysts, will explore how organisations can tap into their existing business analysis expertise and how business analysts can develop their own leadership and strategic skills to step up to this broader role and deliver even more value.
Organisations today face a rapidly changing world:
- Technology is enabling new ways of working and the evolution of new, innovative business models that challenge existing practices
- Customers are able to find alternatives and take their business elsewhere more easily than ever
- More and more data is available on all aspects of organisations and their customers, offering those who can tap into it huge insights
But many organisations already have a cadre of leaders who understand and can deal with all this and help organisations to survive and thrive in this new, changing world. Most organisations just don’t know it yet. Who are these leaders? Look no further than your Business Analysts!
The discipline of business analysis has grown and evolved over recent years. Twenty years ago, business analysts focused mainly on project requirements. Nowadays, their expertise and skills can help organisations to work collaboratively towards improved performance, organisational agility and innovation across the enterprise.
We now see the experienced Business Analysts contributing a vital role in strategy planning, goal setting and strategy execution.
