BA's and Business Transformation

The playing field is evolving. Business Transformation is where it’s at! New ways of connecting with technology and a shift away from traditional and isolated IT projects means the role of the Business Analyst (BA) is becoming increasingly integral by helping people take the guessing and uncertainty out of their businesses. The role of a BA has been promoted to one of encouraging collaboration steeped in analysis and thought leadership. It’s a “game changer”!

BA’s now draw from a broader skill set guiding clients to Business Transformation. Via an independent, pragmatic and customer-centric approach, the BA builds a shared understanding of the transformational journey at all levels resulting in; positive engagement and collaboration, more assured decision making and better outcomes. 

There is not one clear checklist of skills for transformation, however, it requires a mix of skills and an integrated service blend throughout the Transformation lifecycle. The BA must use their extensive “toolkit” and “game-changing“ powers of communication, problem-solving, relationship building and expectations management to support and influence a successful transformation journey.

The BA is the catalyst for influencing, supporting and securing the end goal!
