Virtual Professional Development Conference



As many organizations do for their executives, Bluegrass IIBA Chapter is taking our entire Global BA Community on a Retreat. The purpose of this retreat is to rejuvenate, regenerate, rebuild and refresh your business analysis skills to cope with the changing environment that the coronavirus, the great resignation and other disruptions have brought to our business environment for 2022 and beyond. 

You may purchase the content from this conference by clicking the purchase button at the bottom of this page. You may watch video recordings of all sessions and download the presentation slides from most sessions. Content will be available until July 31, 2022.


Our retreat contained:

Morning Keynote: Keith Ellis, Chief Engagement and Growth Officer, International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®)

                              IIBA Perspectives on the Future of Business Analysis 

Closing Keynote: Tracy Graf, CEO / Certified Virtual Trainer Facilitator, Fuse - Igniting Communication

                             How to be an Innovation Change Maker   

Tracks: 

BA in Products: With many organizations changing their mindset from running projects to developing products, this track will 

                            highlight how business analysts provide value to the development and maintenance of products throughout

                            the product lifecycle.   

 BA Toolbelt: Just like Batman's toolbelt, business analysts take specific tools, competencies, techniques from their toolbelt at the 

                      time they are needed to show their BA super power. 

 BA Specialties: Many business analysts have a generalized BA career; however, their are many specialized areas to which you

                           can drive your BA career. This track focuses on the skills and competencies needed to specialize in these areas.
