The BA as Knowledge Curator
Presented by: Ian Mitchell
BAs have always used models. They bring precision, re-usability and clarity to the work we produce. But our business stakeholders don’t share our enthusiasm for complex diagrams and elaborate models.
In this session Ian will look at the reasons why BAs need to become ‘Knowledge Curators’, and some techniques on how to do it. He’ll use examples – good and bad - from some recent projects, and show why it’s no longer about the tools we use, but the knowledge those tools contain, and how we present it to people that counts.
We'll look at how to:
- Select your knowledge – based on knowing your audience
- Organise it - to take them on a journey of discovery
- Present it – in a compelling way, to engage the them
- Understand types of knowledge in models
- Deconstruct the process of curation of knowledge
Learn some techniques for curation
