Position Yourself For Success
Over the last couple of years, we have seen increasing demands for hybrid Business Analyst (BA)s across many different industries in FI, Utilities, Telco, Aviation, etc. The traditional view of BA as the gate-keeper for requirements and documentation no longer aligns with the current world.
This is evident in many incumbents today who are transforming themselves speedily to keep pace with the demands and challenges coming at them from different areas. It is therefore common to see BAs often needing to wear multiple hats and be familiar with a wide range of tools and techniques - these tools and techniques may even sit outside of the BABOK scope.
Make no mistake, the BA discipline will always be the cornerstone for assessing organisations' true needs to support value driven analysis. However, in order to provide sound and viable solutions for their organisation, they need to acquire multi-disciplinary knowledge and know-hows in other areas such as Project Management, Agile, Data analytics in addition to constant uplifting of their cognitive and interpersonal skills to be more effective in their roles.
In an effort to raise awareness and uplift the knowledge of our fellow BA professionals, IIBA HK Chapter is happy to introduce an integrated themed PD-series events which begins from April to September this year. Please feel free to look us up on meetup.com and we look forward to seeing you at one of the events.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
