Content of this episode: Pre-Project Problem Analysis

  • Problem analysis for successful projects
  • Understanding the why
  • Understanding the what

Successful projects need a clear direction and a definitive destination. Therefore it is necessary having a solid understanding of the business problem or opportunity that exists. Understanding the real business problem, it is much easier to elicit and analyze business requirements and understand the business value that the project will deliver.

Adrian is one of our special experts at the BA Camp 2016 in Vienna. At the BA Boot Camp on 11th of May he will start his course with a broad definition of problem analysis, and then focusses on understanding the high-level “Why” and the “What” of projects.   The session continues by focussing on how to define a high-level “project concept summary”.  Adrian will provide and exercise with the attendees tools and techniques that they can use early in the project process. These techniques are also useful and valuable throughout the project, in cases where the organisational, business or scope changes take place whilst the project is in flight.

BA18 Nonverbal Communications with Joe Navarro

BAs have to act like Sherlock Holmes: They need to pay their attention not only to the spoken words, but also to nonverbal communication. How body language is in meetings important too and what to look for, you will find out in this episode.

Communication is key in any business analysis project. Most people believe that words are the communication of the message when, in fact, words make up only 7 percent of the message. Tone of voice and nonverbal communication make up the other 93 percent. As a business analyst, you should be familiar with the positives and pitfalls of common verbal and nonverbal communication. In this episode we speak with Joe Navarro, famous writer and speaker and one of the world’s foremost authorities on reading non-verbal communications.
