Why business analysts are indispensable

Basics of Business Analysis
February 27 – 29, 2020 | 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. | Alberta College Campus

Business analysis goes beyond project deliverables and illustrates business values in order to implement successful changes in organizations (see study by McKinsey “Unlocking success in digital transformations”).

Research shows that less than 30 per cent of digital transformation projects succeed (source: McKinsey). This makes business analysts invaluable, as they play a critical role to properly identify needs, engage stakeholders, assess solutions and evaluate their performance to look for improvements over time. Learn more about different aspects of business analysis in our Basics of Business Analysis course. Class starts February 27, 2020. Sign up on the website today!
