Looking for a Mentor 

 

 Hi Everyone,

I am new to the Modern Analyst community and have found the BA topics discussed and the knowledge of people contributing to be really exciting. I am 23 years old and graduated early this year from university with a Bachelor of Business Systems. I have chosen to take the self-employed route and have managed to recently secured my first client. I am now currently working for them full time as a external consultant (for the last 3 months). 

I am looking for someone who has experience in the BA field of systems design and implementation that would be willing to mentor me through this early stage of my BA career, and help me to successfully manage my first client. I consider myself very hard working and motivated, and am simply looking for personal advice and guidance online (via email/Skype) from someone who has been down this road before.

If you would like to invest some of your experience into a fledgling BA, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Many thanks for your consideration,

Mitch

Re: Looking for a Mentor 

 That's a good idea, however I live on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

It's not really known as a business center, so I wasn't counting on finding someone around here.

But hey, if there are any BA's on the Gold Coast, that would be a bonus!!!!

Mitch you're in luck.  There are some excellent experienced analysts in the GC and Brisbane.  Email me and I'll help put you in touch with them.

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
