Webinar: Technical Skills Every Business Analyst Should Master or At Least Understand

Statistics:Article Rating (8170 Views) (0 Comments)


I have been one to say over the years that I would hire a person with excellent communication skills, analytical skills and facilitation skills even without business area knowledge and / or technical skills because the latter knowledge and skills can be taught to someone who possesses the former set of skills. And, let’s face it, technical skills keep changing faster than a normal human can keep up. Only a few years ago you would find it hard to see a position announcement in the Business Analyst world that included ‘machine language skills’, but today it is not unusual.

But what are the companies who ask for business analyst candidates with “machine language skills” or “blockchain background” or ‘big data knowledge” really looking for? Why are they asking for technical skills that are not really part of the business analyst’s venue?

This webinar presents the technical skills in demand today and what the organizations asking for those skills actually expect out of the business analyst. The webinar also discusses the sneaky recruiting tactics many organizations use when hiring, especially in a seller’s recruitment market.
