Systems Thinking: A Crucial BA Skill in an Uncertain World

Presented by Adrian Reed, Director and Principal Consultant at Blackmetric Business Solutions

It has often been said that we live in an increasingly volatile, complex and ambiguous world.   The external business environment is complex and fast-moving, yet often our stakeholders are blindsided by ‘silver-bullet’ solutions that assume a neat linear relationship between cause and effect. 
In reality, things are rarely neat and linear. More often we’ll find that situations are devilishly difficult, requiring us to understand and engage with a whole range of messy interconnected issues and perspectives.
In this practical presentation, Adrian Reed discusses the importance of systems thinking in business analysis. During the presentation you will hear:

·        What systems thinking ‘is’, why it matters, and the conditions in which it can be relevant in an analysis environment

·        A range of practical techniques from the world of systems thinking that have direct applicability in the BA world

·        How systems thinking and systems practice, when embraced by a range of complementary practitioners and stakeholders, can help an organisation ‘learn’

Three Ways Business Analysts Enable Agile Success

Presented by Garry McGouldrick, Senior Vice President of Professional Services at IAG Constulting


Attend this free one-hour webinar with Andrew Hayward and Garry McGouldrick for a frank discussion about what Agile demands from a Business Analyst, how they can succeed, and how they can ensure their team succeeds.

There are a lot of misconceptions about Business Analysis in an Agile environment, and sometimes Business Analysts find it hard to adapt to the short iterations, just-in-time planning, and minimalist documentation and modeling that characterizes Agile development. This webinar will dispel some common myths about Agile, including the belief that Business Analysts aren’t welcome in Agile and explain why every development team needs excellent business analysis to be successful.
