Why business analysis is key to delivering on strategy

The accelerating pace of change is having a marked effect on how senior executives devise and implement organisational strategies. Technology has opened up a whole new range of possibilities – forcing executives to consider transformational ideas alongside the traditional incremental approaches. Selecting the right ideas is difficult; but implementing them has proved similarly challenging with many organisations experiencing a low success rate on technology projects.
A prerequisite to selecting the right idea and driving it through to successful implementation is getting the analysis right. This presentation will deliver a comprehensive perspective on the role of business analysis in the successful delivery of organisational strategies.
Join Hugh and Elliot as they explore the competencies needed to deliver on strategy and how to build them through formal education, on the job training and mentoring.

Don't be a zombie writing your stories: Learn some cutting-edge analysis techniques

Have you ever been told that all Business Analysts do on Agile projects is write stories? I have... and that's the boring part of our job! There are a lot of cutting-edge analysis techniques we can use to not only elicit requirements, but have fun and collaborate with others while doing so.
During this presentation, you will learn why problem solving with our software development teams is essential. I will introduce techniques to get our teams talking, discussing the problem, and agreeing on a solution. Learn how to run a design studio workshop, facilitate a customer journey map or experiment with example mapping. I'll also include general facilitation tips to take these sessions up another notch.
Don’t just be a zombie writing your next story. Let’s think about the problem and how we’ll solve it together!
