Every good recipe is made of the right amount of ingredients to ensure the end product is as delicious as possible. When one of the KEY ingredients is off, or even missing, the recipe may not render the same delicious results. Of course you do have the opportunity to improve, and find ways to improve the recipe better, but there is always a foundation to build off of. In addition to the ingredients, every good recipe has instructions on how to blend those ingredients to produce the end product.
How you blend those ingredients can greatly impact the end result. As business analysis evolves so does the role we play. We are consulted for our expertise to help draw out and bring forth business needs to help build transformational solutions. Not only do we need to bring our skills and experience to the table, but we need to effectively consult to build the powerful transformational solutions needed. There are ingredients to effectively consult, and there are instructions on how to effectively blend those ingredients together to be effective. In this session participants will learn:
