Business Analysis Webinars for July 2018


Fast Tracking Project Concepts

Presented by Rob Stewart, Senior Consultant, IAG Consulting


So you’ve been assigned a complex, poorly defined project concept… now what?

Nothing is worse (or better) for a senior project manager or analyst than being handed a project that is:  strategic, very large, and way outside your comfort zone in complexity.  These projects will sometimes roll around the halls of big companies for months while they struggle to gain sufficient momentum and clarity to really move forward with a sense of purpose and direction. Let’s say one of these career-bruisers/-builders is yours?  What do you do next?

This session is about the tactics of early-stage project intake and clarification – getting clarity efficiently.


Learning Objectives:

1.      Inside the project intake process – why is intake so dysfunctional?

2.      The action plan – simple steps that drive project clarity and milestones that deliver benefit.

3.      Targeted result – time tested deliverables that work

Strategic Thinking 

Presented by Jody Jones, Ph.D., President at Strategic Transformations


Steps to Developing a Strategic Mindset

Many organizations have the tendency to lose their grasp on long-term plans in order to get immediate results. That’s why strategic thinking skills are essential for employees at all levels.


Everyone needs to be able to evaluate ideas, devise alternatives, make hard choices and align tactics to reach business objectives.


This program offers you a powerful introduction to AMA’s Strategic Thinking seminar, explaining the combination of concepts around the skills needed to think strategically, and the practices that allow participants to develop and hone their skills in a classroom environment.


This course is designed for people who want to be able to move beyond day-to-day, reactionary thinking to gain a more long-term and future-focused perspective.


What You Will Learn 

·        Traits that determine the ability to think strategically

·        An introduction to AMA’s 9-part model for strategic thinking
