As an experienced BA I have always enjoyed staying up to date formally and informally on developments, learning opportunities and professional networking events. The role of the BA has never been more important and there is a shortage for competent BAs worldwide. We are looking to run occasional events presenting speakers who have interesting topics for BAs to learn from and keep updated on developments in our profession. Open to all but especially those with BA in their title, those who perform business analysis activities, those looking to move into the industry or anyone interested in the topic.
The skillset of the BA is in high demand in the jobs market. Organisations are looking for people who can deliver change using a combination of empirical data-driven analysis, stakeholder engagement and value-based decision making. This meet-up is an interactive and informal panel discussion covering the skills required and opportunities for BAs in today's market. Effective project change professionals are needed in both exciting start-ups and large enterprises transforming for the digital age. Whether you work in an Agile or more traditional waterfall type environment the skillset of an experienced BA are vital to improvement, change risk analysis, innovation and customer centricity. Venue sponsored by those kind hipster folk in Wework Singapore. Networking before and after. If anyone wants to participate as an interesting speaker or panel participant at a future event please contact us to discuss community interest suitability.

Organisations are investing millions of dollars in AI programs to build smart learning machines to leverage big data, embed smart automation and support better decision making.
