ACD Chapter Meeting: Reaching New Heights in Business Analysis

Tuesday, January 9, 2024 -
18:00 to 19:30

Unforgettable program combining innovative planning, data analysis, problem solving, and agile BA strategies with mountaineering analogies.

Reaching New Heights in Business Analysis is an engaging visual and educational experience packed with tools, strategies and actionable ideas that business analysts can be put into practice to make positive changes in their own lives and more broadly in the businesses they work with. It is built around the two years of planning and two months of execution that went into making the goal of reaching the summit of Mount Everest a reality for Alan and three members of his immediate family, and integrates many BA strategies for understanding goals, monitoring progress, assessing risk, and adapting to changing environments. The powerful strategies and skills that contributed to this achievement, especially during the intense and at many times critical situations, can be applied to all aspects of business.
