What Skills Do You Bring To The Table?

Business Analysis for Business Intelligence is a somewhat orphan discipline.

Many IT analysts believe the classical analysis and development methods will do whereas the customer i.e. the finance, marketing, operations, and general manager to name a few, often readjusts the brief as the development is under way. They do this claiming “Now I see the possibilities I can really define my requirements”.

In this session Bert Brijs will present a case for considering Big Data business analysis and project management as special disciplines.

Business Analysis for Business Intelligence is the first attempt ever to match the business intelligence analysis track with the strategy process the organization manages (or sometimes undergoes).

Only by synchronizing the analysis with the strategy process can we avoid costly rework, disappointed customers and frustrated developers!

One disheartening aspect of the role of the Project Manager,
Which virtually no one seems to be able to overcome,
Is “Project Failure”

Senior IT and business leaders have grown weary of the project failure epidemic, and are now looking to individual Projects Managers (PM)s and the Project Management Office (PMO) to do something about it. This webinar features essential advice on how you can.

Some reasons for project failure are easy to name, but this webinar reveals the 10 hidden causes of project failure that lie just under the radar of most Project Managers. Hidden problems that continue to sabotage project teams day after day.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to spot these 10 hidden reasons, and you’ll also discover effective, proven solutions for overcoming each one.

Here’s a sneak peek of the 10 hidden reasons revealed in the webinar:

  • Hidden Reason #3: Requirements errors actually getting approved and slipping into development unnoticed
  • Hidden Reason #6: Your team members being “fuzzy” on the details of your project (even though you’ve likely never heard them admit it)
  • Hidden Reason #10: Expecting agile to ‘cure’ the problem

Don’t miss this important opportunity to understand the cause of project failure in a whole new light, so you can be the one who finally gets the project failure epidemic under control at your organization. Register for this webinar now!
