Hello BA enthusiast

As BAs, we often wear many different hats. We play different roles in different contexts, always trying to make a difference, and always helping move things forward.

You may think it's a little early to look back at all the hats you've been wearing in 2020 (some of them probably quite unexpectedly in today's corona world!) and to look ahead at 2021. But I wanted to be the first to give you a hint for your New Year's resolutions...

So, what hat should you pick up in 2021? Inspired by Danelkis Serra's talk at #BABeyond20, I'd say you should not look at your environment for inspiration. You should look in the mirror. Where do you want to go?

The IIBA Business Analysis Competency Model can help you identify where you are today and where you want to get, from generally aware to strategist, in any of the BA Knowledge Areas and underlying competencies.

2021: time for "Project Me"?

Good luck! (And don't forget: we're here to help. :-))

How to tackle businesses' biggest challenge: resistance to change and employee performance

On Thursday, 17th of December, we will host an interactive with Agnesia Agrella. Under normal circumstances, businesses must constantly adapt to the needs of their customers, requests from regulators, changes in technology and the demands of their shareholders, but COVID has added another very complex layer. 

In this webinar, we will explore the skills and techniques that management, project teams, and staff can use to change these challenges into opportunities. This webinar is for free, but registration is required.

Interactive BA Community sessions

Image description

The business analyst is a generalist. This we can clearly see in the survey we did at IIBA. Only 38% of business analysis practitioners are called “Business Analysts”.

In response to these results we organized our first BA community event on November 17th to discuss “What’s in a BA title?”. One of our participants defined an analyst as someone who discovers, and analyses information coming from various sources and enables changes by designing and describing solutions that can deliver value to the end user.

Interested in joining future community sessions? Keep an eye on our event page.
