What's Hot and What's Not: Trends in Business Analysis on Projects

Overview

Organizations are becoming increasingly aware that no matter how well they manage projects, they won’t succeed if they don’t get the requirements right. But what does it mean to have good requirements? Is it creating a mountain of unnecessary paperwork? Is it a rejection of techniques that have served requirements practitioners well over the years? Where is the business analysis industry going? This presentation addresses these hot topics in business analysis.

Specifically, this presentation:

• Describes seven trends in the field of business analysis and why some of these trends are replacing time-honored traditions while others are not

• Describes four competencies that are needed to take advantage of these trends

• Discusses what this means for practitioners who do or manage business analysis work

Learning Objectives

Attendees will be able to discuss:

• The latest trends in business analysis

• Which trends are apt to last and which will fade

• What is needed to take advantage of these trends
