Special Presentation: 5 Skills Needed for BA Success

Which skills are absolutely critical for BAs to have? There are so many that are important, but the most valuable are those that can be applied to all initiatives, for all BA roles from the most strategic to` tactical, and regardless of the methodology or methods used to develop the solution. These skills can be applied before the project begins, during the project, and post-implementation.

This presentation focuses on these 5 universal, essential skills. Richard and Elizabeth explain these top 5 skills and give practical examples of each. They explain why they are important, and why they are needed for every BA to provide maximum value to the organizations where they work.
