The Future of Business Analysis…The CEO Perspective

Business leaders are acutely aware of how important the next few years are, as they are forced to navigate a rapidly changing, increasingly demanding business environment. Globally, 72% of CEOs believe the next 3 years will be more critical than the last 50 years in their industry and 41% of CEOs anticipate that their company will be significantly transformed over the next 3 years. They will be looking for people who can develop and deliver timely insights to help with difficult decision-making.

Industry disruption and transformation is being driven primarily by technology, data and increasingly sophisticated consumers. These forces are demanding new ways of thinking and operating. In order to be well-positioned for the critical years ahead, the business analysis community needs to clearly align its value proposition to the organizational needs, and articulate this alignment effectively to business leaders and decision-makers.  This presentation will look at where the business analysis professional is today in serving their organization and its business leaders, and how they must transform to meet the business needs of the very near future.
