BA Development Day 2016 - DONE!
Thanks to those of you who supported, sponsored and participated on the day. The days leading up to this years' conference were challenging for many but the call to 'go ahead' resulted in many of us having a great opportunity to focus on growing our skills (from great keynote speakers), sharing knowledge (through open space) and collaborating in discussions to explore the future of business and business analysis.
Topics voted for discussion on the day were:
How will the trends toward Agile, Lean, and/or DevOps affect business analysis?
How will new technologies such as Cloud, Everything as a Service, and automation change business?
Will the proliferation of data from the Internet of Things require business analysts to develop more data analytical skills?
Can designers and business analyst’s work together to ensure that the ‘voice of the customer’ is heard?
Is subject matter expertise in a technology required or will the ‘generalist’ BA continue?
How will Millennials change the business analysis profession?
What skills and techniques are required by new BAs today, tomorrow and in 2026?
How can Business Analysis professionals support business in a disruptive world?
Our fantastic scribes have collated content from the open space session this scribed content is now published.
Each scribe has applied a different approach to collating content. We've published this as received however, you will notice some scribed content that contains raw detail and is more verbatim. IIBA and BA Development Day folk will work through this over the coming weeks/months and will extract sections or comments to share common themes or perspectives that emerged.
Also - photos from the day are available on our BA Development Day facebook page
