Business Analysis, the Third Wave: revisited, James Cadle, Director, AssistKD
Business analysis has developed over more than two decades and, during this time, there have been notable step changes that have extended the discipline’s scope and focus. In her keynote presentation to the BA Conference Europe in 2013, Debra Paul reviewed progress within the business analysis discipline and suggested that three ‘waves’ of business analysis practice could be identified, one of which was in its early, if not aspirational, stage. In this presentation, James Cadle considers business analysis practice through the lens of the third wave concept, discusses whether or not the potential offered by the third wave has been achieved, and highlights the challenges business analysts face in 2019.
Attendees will learn about:
- The rationale for the emergence and development of business analysis
- The nature of the first, second and third waves of business analysis
- The potential offered by business analysis and the challenges facing business analysis
