How the BA is influencing and supporting Business Transformation

The playing field has changed. There are new ways of connecting with technology and a shifting focus away from the traditional isolated IT projects into modern day Business Transformation and the role of the Business Analyst (BA) is continuing to help bring people together but is now being regarded more as a thought leader and “game changer”!

Business Analysis has been promoted from the traditional requirements gathering and the BA is emerging on the field as a driving force for change.

Now BA's are using a broader skill set to be involved in, and sometimes lead, Business Transformation. With an independent, pragmatic and customer-centric approach, the BA builds a shared understanding of the transformation journey at all levels enabling 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!

So, how can you ensure Business Analysis contributes to your project's success, and why does independence matter when it comes to BAs?
