How frequently are you asked to describe what a BA does? Well, it depends, doesn't it?

In this session we will explore what it means to be part of a diverse BA community and the positive impact it has in RoS.

We'll talk about diversity from the perspective of:

  • The RoS BA Community: their skills, backgrounds and areas of focus
  • The RoS CoP: how they knowledge share and innovate
  • The RoS BA Playbook: how they are bringing together their collective tools and methods into a toolkit for all

About the BA Community of Practice at RoS

The BA Community of Practice (COP) at RoS has been up and running for about six years. Having started out with five members, the community now has twenty members and is made up of business analysts of all levels with a wide range of skills and experience.  The BA community within RoS have been instrumental in helping RoS win major industry awards in 2020, 2021 and 2022.  The community is a diverse group of people with skills, knowledge and experience covering all aspects of business analysis and service design.

The COP comes together formally as a group once a week for various discussions with conversations often continuing amongst members between these meetings.  Despite working on different missions and projects, the community has come to rely on each other for support and help during the working week.
