BI is clearly a top priority for organizations:

Gartner estimates close to 90% of the world’s organizations have already implemented some form of a BI capability.

They estimate annual worldwide spend on big data hardware, software and professional services tops $30B, with annual spend on advanced and predictive analytics close behind.

  • The differences and similarities between the BI BA and a Business Analyst;
  • Examines common challenges experienced and …
  • Sheds light on how to use your existing BA skillset to your BI team’s advantage.

Improving organizational Requirements Maturity is a strategic approach to improving project success and aligning IT with the business to meet objectives on time and on budget consistently.

According to the recent IAG BA Benchmark study of 437 large and medium organizations in North America and Europe, the organizational level of Requirements Maturity is directly proportional to the likelihood of project success.

Companies invest millions of dollars in recruitment, hiring, and training of Business Analysts every year without a detailed understanding of the role and how to integrate into the enterprise; the average Requirements Maturity level in North America is only 1.8 on a scale of 1-5, and only a fraction of those measured qualified at a level 3 or higher.

For individual and organizations that are serious about improving in a consistent and measurable way, IAG will explain the key concepts and results you can expect by improving organizational Requirements Maturity

Learning Objectives:

  1. The impact of requirements maturity on overall business and project objectives.
  2. The Requirements Maturity Model.
  3. A high level roadmap to improving requirements capabilities.
