BA Center of Excellence: A Strategic Position Within State Government
Presented by: Todd Britton
Do you do work, then rework, and then more rework? Are projects being mismanaged? Is time, effort, and money wasted? Are you limited by a political environment? Is civil service shackling your ability to recognize and compensate staff for their work?
State government is still in the 20th century in many ways, working longer and harder instead of smarter and leaner. Hiring and retaining qualified, well-trained staff who are able to deliver in a competitive environment continues to be a challenge.
A well-structured, effective Business Analysis Center of Excellence (BA COE) can help pull you into the 21st century. New York State is turning to their BA COE to ensure all BAs are properly trained, follow industry standards, and are given guidance.
State government isn’t known for being the most cutting-edge work environment. Enterprise-level insight and cross-discipline exposure allows a BA COE to guide the state in leveraging existing resources, streamlining work efforts, and compensating for the shackles of a political environment.
What Attendees Will Learn:
- Describe a BA Center of Excellence
- Outline Strategic Value it can provide
- Discuss the steps to set up a successful BA COE
