Building a BA Culture in your Organization
Stephen G. Johann, CBAP
Founder and Principal, Evolve, LLC
Manager Business Analysis Competency Cente, MVP Healthcare
ABOUT THIS SESSION:
Through a real-world case study, this session will address a timely question organizations face as they investigate implementing best practices for Business Analysis activities - how do you effectively develop and articulate the value of the role of Business Analyst and the practice of Business Analysis to the organization?
The focus of the session will be to highlight key steps MVP Healthcare took to raise awareness through base lining current processes, escalating gaps and selling a vision of “true” business analysis to Senior Management. The nature of partnerships with both Learning Tree and the IIBA will be examined in terms of tangible offerings and collaboration.
Attendees will walk away with:
An actionable “game plan”
Real life examples of how to leverage training partners and the IIBA
An opportunity to ask questions of a manager/creator of a Business Analysis Competency Center and Licensed Instructor / industry BA expert.
