All too often people take on the “Business Analyst” role to provide some specialist input to a project. It’s a great starting point, but the move to Business Analyst involves a greater mindset shift than just moving desks - it's about creating something meaningful, achieving a purpose. To lead the business through purposeful change, it is essential to be able to communicate with different stakeholder groups using the right tools and techniques. BAs need to learn to “speak analyst”.
This presentation is about the mindset of analysis, it is not about specific methodologies or approaches. I will reflect on “speaking analyst” in the context of our experience as consultant practitioners at our clients.
