Business Analysis the Practice is changing, Business Analysis the Analyst is changing even more. Digital business analysis, product manager, collaboration, information velocity, the digital era, security demands in core requirements, ease of use expectations, customer experience, UX, BX, meeting the business outcome, the impact of business architecture, data analytics, and much more are impacting business analysis.
Where does the BABOK fit into this? What does the BABOK offer?
When we only talk about the Business Analyst, this great and wonderful world we live in can suddenly become confusing; growing fear and resentment within us. Why do we need more than MS Office to produce our artifacts? Why can my document not speak for itself? If I morph into other roles am I still a business analyst? What is the business outcome? What is strategy and communications got to do with my specific role? What is the difference between business analyst and digital business analyst? And why does the Business Development Life Cycle matter more than the Software Development Life Cycle?
Mariam will be joined by the following panelists to discuss and answer questions about what is trending and evolving in business analysis for the business analyst.
