Date: 20 Oct 2023

The Brown Bag is our weekly drop-in discussion. It's a chance to chat informally with fellow business anlaysis professionals, sharing experiences and tips, and forging new connections in the BA community.

This week, we'll be talking about being the only BA!

Business analysts often find they're the only BA in their project team. Many (particularly in smaller organisations) also find themselves the sole BA in the building! Not having fellow business anlaysis professionals alongside you can feel isolating at times, making it harder to fly the flag for best practices and taking time to really understand the situation. We can often find ourselves squeezed and buffeted by the demands from other roles in business change and prodct development. Being the only BA can also feel like a weighty resonsibility to carry.

In this informal and supportive discussion, we'll be sharing experiences and advice around being the only BA. If you'd like to share your own stories, or have tips or wisdom for others, then come along and join the discussion. 


The Brown Bag will be open from 12:00 until 13:00 UK time, but you can drop in and out when you want. Visitors from other IIBA chapters are very welcome, as are non-members. 

The 'Drop In' button will appear on this page at the start of the session, so just return to this page and click on the button to join the session - you don't need to book in advance!

You can add thoughts using the Comments section below if you've got any ideas about how the Brown Bag should work, future subjects you'd like to talk about - or if you'd just like to tell people you'll be coming.
