Pathway to Strategy Analysis - Does the average BA know how to get there?

Workshop Summary:

Why is the Pathway to Strategy Analysis so confusing and rarely undertake. We all know Strategy Analysis properly focuses the organisations attention on important issues, opportunities, benefits, stakeholders, scope and objectives, so why do we wait until the project is started to undertake this activity (if at all!)

It is not practical to be involved in this type of strategy altering work without a solid foundation of knowledge about the organisation as a whole and how it relates to its customers, competition, the environment, market trends, financial factors, and a wide range of other components. Without understanding the important nature of Strategy Analysis, a Business Analyst gets too caught up in the details to recognise the impact a process or system change could have on the organisation and vice versa. Therefore, this step is critical to demystify the Pathways to undertaking this vital activity and a session not to be missed by Sponsors, Executives, Project Managers and Business Analysts alike.

In this presentation, you will be walked through the steps to ensure your project is given the best chance of success rather than becoming an industry static (or worse, as case study).

Objectives:

  • How to create and sell a pathway enabling Strategy Analysis in your organisation without a sledge hammer;
  • Create a checklist of the types and sources of information useful in this level of analysis and where to find them; and
  • Understand how effective Strategy Analysis significantly help management and organisations achieve their goals.
