Written and verbal skills 
Modified By  on 4/29/2008 10:19:55 AM)

A report was recently published in Australia that highlights the challenges that people fron non englisg speaking background face when looking to develop their career.

I don't have the details to hand (heard it on the radio) but the key challenge to people who, for example, do IT and business degrees in getting work is their English writing and speaking skills.

So to all of you guys and girls out there who struggle with English but want to work in Australia, the US or Canada; make sure you invest sufficient time and energy into honing those speaking and writing skills.

MA provides and excellent opportunity for developing your writing skills via the forums.  You could also start blogging on Business Analysis (either here or on another platform.)  Both are great opportunities for practice and feedback.

As for speaking; joining groups like Toastmasters can help you get the practice you need to be successful in your career.

Good luck.

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-...
Business analysis is used to identify and articulate the need for change in how organizations work, and to facilitate that change.
