Introducing the Holistic Business Analyst
‘Holism’ originates from the Greek word ‘holos’ (» ‘all’, ‘whole’, ‘entire’), and is the concept that systems (physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic, etc.) and their properties should be viewed as wholes, not just as a collection of parts.
Business Analysts are very often absorbed by their work on solutions, customer experience improvements, business process reengineering exercises, and so on … And each of those initiatives are very likely to have an impact on the whole organisation. As such, the Holistic Business Analyst looks at an organisation as a whole and not only as a collection of its parts: e.g. employees, business domain(s), customers, processes, systems, …
But for many of us this is often easier said than done.
The speaker will introduce you to the world of the Holistic Business Analyst and what it takes to become one: He will show you the different levels on which the Holistic BA can contribute, the different levels of requirements, the different types of scope, the different types of stakeholders, … and how all of these are connected.
