Minneapolis – Jan 28, 2014. Watermark Learning, a leading worldwide provider of Business Analysis, Project Management, Agile, and Business Process Management training, today named the seven most important new trends that it sees in the areas of business analysis and project management for 2014. This year’s trends reflect the increasing emphasis on Agile methods, the role of cloud computing, personal communications, and an increasing focus on requirements management, among others.

“Business analysts and project managers find themselves taking on increasingly important roles in organizations, as business leaders recognize their importance to the enterprise,” said Elizabeth Larson, Watermark Learning CEO. “Business Analysts and project managers need to be aware of this opportunity and recognize the influence of these new trends in shaping their roles.”
Watermark Learning’s seven trends for business analysis and project management are:

1. Continued “frothing-at-the-mouth” enthusiasm for anything “Agile”
2. The resurgence of use cases, particularly on agile projects
3. Business Analysis focus on design
4. Increased use of cloud computing and the need for business analysis in choosing cloud solutions
5. Less email, more “connecting” via synchronous audio and video tools
6. Business analysts will focus on communicating first and documenting second
7. Project managers will focus on requirements management
