BA Career Series: The Tipping Point: Elevating Role of BA to "Proxy" Data Scientist

In our BA Careers Series we will investigate specialized and complementary careers in business analysis, such as Agile Analyst, Business Relationship Management, Change Management, Product Ownership Analyst, Project Management and others.

The market forces of cloud computing, IoT, digital transformation, value- driven analysis and data science are brewing the perfect storm to position BA for becoming proxy data scientist in absence of skilled resources. This presentation will discuss resources for BA up skilling and also present a blueprint of how BA role intersects data scientist role and why BA is well positioned to play a seat at the table becoming a trusted advisor of the business. Jaleann will discuss distinct skillsets for data science roles to keep in mind on your growth plans.

In this session, the Atlanta IIBA Chapter's VP of Professional Development (Jaleann McClurg) will bring her experience in the Data Analytics space to help you understand how you can leverage your current BA skills to 'find your place at the table' in this fast-growing area of the Business Analysis world.  A 2021t IIBA survey noted that BAs can make a huge difference in the success of data analytics projects by either (a) driving the analysis itself, and/or, (b) serve as a partner with business leaders and data science experts to ensure that a solid business case and outcomes are defined for the project.  If you are interested in raising your abilities -- and your stature within your company -- in this arena, this is the presentation for you.

In collaboration with Atlanta IIBA Chapter.
