Business Analysis Workshop
Hands-On Consulting Sessions
Our business analyst workshops are intense consulting sessions focused on a specific issue to enhance business analysis skills or techniques. They are designed to provide participants an opportunity to work more in-depth with a business analysis expert on their company’s project(s). Use these business analysis workshops to move your projects forward and reinforce concepts and techniques. Workshops can be held for an entire team or multiple teams with a similar focus.
Workshops are structured as either half day or full day working sessions. Participants should bring their project to the workshop. They will work in groups to apply and practice the specific technique and receive coaching by the facilitator. Results and challenges will be discussed as a group to allow all participants the broadest learning opportunities.
