September Chapter Meeting

Kelly JonesSPEAKER:

Kelly Jones, Jabian Consulting


Have you considered where your skills as a Business Analyst can take you?  The answer is that they can take you many places, and during this session we will explore one of these places - the world of product management. We will explore the skills that you already have and how they translate into this other world, and the skills that you can intentionally develop in order to set yourself up for a successful transition.  Facilitating this conversation is a consultant who began her consulting career as a BA and who is now an expert in the field of product management.


Kelly is a Director at Jabian Consulting, a firm that specializes in creating and implementing strategies to enhance business processes, develop human capital, and better align technology with our clients' business needs. Kellys areas of expertise include: product strategy and management, business process analysis, engineering and optimization, and software delivery in both Waterfall and Agile methodologies. Prior to Jabian, Kelly was with Philip Morris USA where she developed skills in market analysis, strategy creation, and account management.

In the community, Kelly serves as Chair of TAGs Product Management Society and is also an active alumni at both her academic alma maters, including the University of Georgia where she earned a Bachelor of Business Administration and Goizueta Business School at Emory University where she earned a Master of Business Administration.
