  • Description

    Have you worked from one project to the next and noticed that requirements are managed differently, documented inconsistently, or do not exist because there are no resources to elicit requirements? Have you experienced roadblocks to standardize the practice of BA’s or “professionalize” the BA role in your organization? HMSA’s BCIS management team recognized these issues in their requirements process and deliberately embarked on implementing a structured Business Analyst role to achieve consistent, quality results. Join Margaret in this session as she shares her department’s journey towards solidifying the role of the Business Analyst as a valued contributor to the organization’s success. Learn about the intranpreneurial approach that was taken to drive change and innovation. Walk away with ideas for BA career paths, development frameworks, BA methodologies, and other useful tools that will support the development and success of your BA teams.

    Learning Objectives
    • Understand the role and importance of the Business Analyst
    • Identify strategies and a framework for professionalizing the BA role
