How Do I Thrive as a Hybrid Business Analyst?
Presented by: Paul Crosby
Are you BA, PM, QA, Product Owner and Subject Matter expert all rolled into one? Maybe just a PM-BA-QA? Is it even possible to succeed while wearing multiple hats? In this environment of getting it done faster, smaller budgets, and a reduced value of separating the roles the business analyst can feel like they are caught between a rock and hard place. There are a lot of different types of a hybrid role. Some lean more towards leadership and others more towards analysis. The hybrid role doesn’t work for all types of projects - which projects are best served by a hybrid role? Having a good foundation in both leadership and analysis will allow you to better execute the hybrid role. Are you ready to take a journey into the world of hybrids and build your survival plan?
- Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each type of hybrid role
- Learn which hybrid role types that will work best for you and put together a survival plan on how to operate within those hybrid role types
- Understand which tasks the roles normally perform and which tasks that may have to take a back seat
