    IIBA® Certification Mentoring Social Event

    This dinner social event brings together the Chapter’s IIBA Certification recipients and those wishing to obtain their IIBA Certification. Attendees will enjoy dinner and networking with IIBA Certified individuals and IIBA Certification aspirants. Bluegrass IIBA Chapter is dedicated to assisting those seeking IIBA Certification, and invite everyone from those that are thinking about it to those who are approved and waiting to sit for the certification exam. No matter where you are in that journey you may come and get one-on-one or group mentoring; whichever you wish to get all your questions answered. The purpose of this meeting is three-fold:

    Topic: IIBA® Certification Screen-side Chat

    This is a free online chat session with one of our IIBA® Certification recipients. Often times the CCBA® credential gets lost in all the hype of its big brother the CBAP®. So this month we will give information on the CCBA exam and experience. We will discuss all certification levels, but this month we have a CCBA mentor that will give their perspective and their journey to become IIBA® Certified, as well as provide tips & tricks on anything related to IIBA Certification from the application process to re-certification. Anyone interested in ECBA, CCBA® or CBAP® certification is welcome to come and ask questions of our CCBA mentor.

    • Professionals seeking IIBA certification

    Topic: Utilizing Decision Modeling for Effective Communication in a Project

    When is communication too much? I suspect that most, if not all, business analysts have been involved in projects or initiatives where the communication plan is “Copy everyone”. Other times, a decision or requirement is omitted because a key stakeholder was missed; or even worse, the right audience was contacted, but through the wrong method.

    We communicate to achieve shared understanding. We understand communication—its goals, techniques, and desired outcomes. But can we communicate better? Darrell will share proven techniques to improve communication in a project setting.

    With the BABOK v3, a new competency was added: Decision Modeling. Every business analyst can improve communication among their stakeholders, as well as support the Stakeholder Management Plan and Project Manager’s Communication Plan. This can be achieved by developing a Decision Model to ensure the right balance between too much and too little communication.  Some general guidelines include:

    • Start with the goal, then work backward
    • Don’t get hung up on job titles
    • Avoid e-mail spewing
    • Identifying gaps and errors
    • Be sensitive
    • Be as brief as possible, but as detailed as necessary

    Learning Objectives:

    • How to purposely develop a communication plan for your project
    • What is Decision Modeling
    • How can Decision Modeling support BA communication

     

    Target Audience:

    • Project Business Analysts
    • Enterprise Business Analysts
    • Business Systems Analysts
    • Requirements Engineers
    • Business and Solution Architects
    • Business Relationship Managers
    • Project Managers

    Presented by: Darrell Zuercher, CBAP, PMP, CSM, SSM, Business Analyst at Tata Consultancy Services

    An Atlanta native, Darrell grew up in the deep South, graduating from college and graduate school. Between those two accomplishments, he fled to the Pacific Northwest. He began his IT career in a college library, before moving on to home improvement stores, income tax preparation, journalism, electric utilities, and logistics. Through it all, he has focused on communication: data entry, technical writing, Scrum Master, and business analysis.

    A life-long learner, Darrell has worked to improve his skills throughout his career. As a result, he has obtained the Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP), Project Management Professional (PMP), Certified Scrum Master (CSM [Scrum Alliance]), and SAFe Scrum Master (SSM [Scaled Agile Academy]).

    When not working, Darrell enjoys writing, sports, concerts, collecting stamps, role-playing games, and antiques shopping. These activities have also added depth to his career, teaching him to identify relationships, see from different perspectives, value teamwork, and notice details.

    Darrell and his wife, Kelley, have been married for eight years and have recently moved to Louisville from Chattanooga, Tennessee.

    Annual General Meeting and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

    The Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will host its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and induct the fourth class of professionals into the Bluegrass Business Analysis Hall of Fame (BBAHoF).  The AGM will look at what the Chapter has accomplished in the past year in relation to its strategic plan, its community outreach efforts, relationships it has built and inform participants of the strategic plan for the coming year.  There are transformational changes happening in the global business analysis community, we will look at how the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will bring those changes to the Bluegrass business analysis community. 

    The Bluegrass Business Analysis Hall of Fame recognizes those from the community that have made a significant individual contribution to the advancement of business analysis as a profession within the Bluegrass region. Nominations were made from the community knowing that inductees do not have to have an affiliation with the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter or IIBA; they just must to have made a personal contribution to the advancement and awareness of the value of business analysis here within the Bluegrass region. We will induct our fourth class of inductees for this prestigious recognition of individual effort.

    Annual General Meeting and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

    The Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will host its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and induct the fourth class of professionals into the Bluegrass Business Analysis Hall of Fame (BBAHoF).  The AGM will look at what the Chapter has accomplished in the past year in relation to its strategic plan, its community outreach efforts, relationships it has built and inform participants of the strategic plan for the coming year.  There are transformational changes happening in the global business analysis community, we will look at how the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will bring those changes to the Bluegrass business analysis community. 

    The Bluegrass Business Analysis Hall of Fame recognizes those from the community that have made a significant individual contribution to the advancement of business analysis as a profession within the Bluegrass region.
