Have you ever been stuck in your business analysis career and not know what to do, but you know you want a change? Guess what? You are not alone. As Business Analysts (BAs) we are responsible for planning and monitoring project deliverables, collaborating with key stakeholders to achieve outcomes, adjusting timelines due to changed priorities and finally delivering the polished finished product. But there is more to us than just that. We provide an enormous amount of value through our skills of helping organizations to transform through powerful solutions. However, we are more than just BAs. We are people who want to add value to our organisations and continue to grow in our careers. In order to do that, we need to have a plan. There are key components of this plan you can start to do now. I learned about the importance, and how to do these components through my own career journey which I will share with you during this presentation. I want to provide you with tools and techniques that will ensure you’re never in a situation of business analysis stalemate.
This presentation will provide you with the knowledge and techniques to gain control and direction of your career journey focusing on:
1. How to identify your brand
2. How to craft career goals
3. How to build a network
4. How to stay accountable
