BUSINESS ANALYSIS RISING / the Business Analysis event of the year

We live in a world where change has become not only constant but necessary, a world where the need to innovate and reassess what business previously considered the norm is essential to keep relevant. Companies that were once behemoths and worth billions have been left in the dust of disruptive innovators. It is either change or fade away from relevance.

At the core of this change lies Business Analysis, no longer considered a supporting role but a driving force in industry. Demand for the Business Analysis skill set is at an all-time high and growing at a rate far beyond anything we ever dreamed of.

Solving business problems and driving strategic thinking is becoming more and more complex with the added competition and the emergence of new technologies.

This presents an opportunity for the Business Analyst to step up to take their place at the forefront of industry. Business Analysis has been pushing the boundaries; it is now time to rise beyond the boundaries and tackle the future of the profession head on!
