Join this interactive BABOK study group and actively strengthen your BA skills through an engaging case study.

This hands-on series focuses on practical experience - connecting the dots in what you do to increase value.

Picking up where we left off in 2023, we'll turn our attention to 'How Do You Plan Your Business Analysis?' Proper planning is key - yet often neglected. Imagine showcasing an outline, stakeholders, outcomes and risks to justify analysis timelines, rather than getting squeezed by tight deadlines.

In this session facilitated by myself and the illustrious Imtiaz Kaderbhoy, Pip Hall and Matt Patman, we'll dive into BA planning - an often difficult area - and use our case study to systematically construct an actionable and compelling Business Analysis plan!

Through this journey over these 6 bi-weekly sessions, have fun collaborating while gaining skills to finish your week feeling accomplished.
