Webinar: The Business Analyst and Strategic Thinking

Statistics:Article Rating (11052 Views) (1 Comments)

ABOUT THE WEBINAR All projects are tactical. And as a result, project managers are trained as tacticians, tactical thinkers. However, all projects start as part of an overall strategy for the organization; each project is a step toward achieving one of the organization’s strategic goals. Successful projects never lose the strategic vision of which the project is a part. Recommendations, decisions, actions taken all have to have some sense in light of the strategic impact of those decisions or actions.

And who is going to provide that strategic oversight to the tactical project?

The business analyst is in the best role to apply that strategic thinking to a project to make sure the results of the project contribute to the strategic goals of the organization and those results do not have a negative organizational impact in the future.

This webinar discusses the things a business analyst can do to become more aligned to thinking strategically and applying that strategic thinking to the projects the business analyst is involved with, as well as to everything else the business analyst does in life.
