business analysis techniques

Overview

Come see what the #1 rated workshop at all Project World and Project Summit events is all about!  If you struggle with not getting enough information or time from stakeholders to get the job done you may want to rethink the techniques you have been using.  Businesses today are changing rapidly. The same old techniques that you have been using may not be living up to the agility and speed required to succeed in this new dynamic marketplace of change.  You need techniques that will energize your stakeholders, engage them in new ways that bring them to a new level of collaboration!  Whether you live in an Agile or Waterfall world (or somewhere in-between), whether you are Business Analyst, Project Manager, Leader or Subject Matter Expert, this class is right for your you and your organization.  There are well over 300 techniques that can be used on projects to elicit, analyze, make decision and gain consensus, but only a small portion of them are ever taught or are hidden in a book.

Approach

Our goal at Bob the BA is to help you think, learn and work differently so you can make an impact back on the job. If you always do what you have always done, you will end up right where you were before you were trained right?  So at Bob the BA we take a different approach because we know we learn best by doing and not through lecture. Our courses are always hands-on, practicing through exercises, activities, facilitated discussions, case studies, role play, workshops, printed materials and presentations.
