TOPIC: Decision Making: What a BA Does
FACILITATOR: 'Kupe' Kupersmith, CBAP®, President B2T Training
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
I don’t read the BABOK® all the time, but when I do I focus on the Underlying Competency knowledge area. This area is somewhat hidden, but definitely needs to be found by all business analysis professionals. This knowledge area is defined as “providing a description of the behaviors, characteristics, knowledge and personal qualities that support the practice of business analysis.” However, I say these Underlying Competencies don’t support business analysis, this is what you do as a business analysis professional.
In this session, Kupe will be discussing the Underlying Competency of Decision Making. One of the main responsibilities of business analysis is to help others make better decisions, and to make decisions yourself. If decisions are not made during a project nothing can get accomplished. Easier said than done right? Making a decision, especially when there isn’t consensus can be interesting to say the least. However, there are tools that can be used to help facilitate decision making – tools that will lead you and the team to the right decision. After this session, you will look at business analysis in a whole new light. I have decided you should join me!
• The Importance of Decision Making
• When you need to make decisions and the tools to help make them
• How you help others make decisions
