The Critical Role of the Lead BA
Presented by: Kevin Haines
Have you ever wondered how they do it? How does the Lead BA remain calm, cool and collected in the face of overwhelming odds? How does the Lead BA build rapport with key stakeholders? How do they seem on top of all of the many moving parts of a large project or a program? You must consider all of the elements such as risk, scope, deliverables, changes, timelines and cost. Impossible? Not for the Lead BA!
Join this fun and interactive session designed to help you think like a Lead BA. Whether you have strong business skills, strong technical skills or both, you will be able to walk away with tips and techniques to help you in your day-to-day job. Learn ways to organize your work, define standards and processes and develop relationships. See real-world processes from a current program at a large financial services company. You won't become "Super BA" in a day but you can practice your art to take your skills to the next level!
