Unleashing Creativity in Business Analysis
Do you ever wonder what makes a business analyst tick? How do our brains work to solve problems and envision “to-be” states that don’t exist yet?
When listing the key skills for a business analyst, we would include analytical, organizational, and communication skills. But we leave it to others to be creative. Right?
Creativity is the “ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination.” When viewed this way, creativity must be a key quality for a business analyst.
And IIBA agrees: This year’s theme at the Building Business Capability conference, the official conference of the IIBA, is Unleashing Creativity, and there are a lot of presentations about techniques BAs can use, discussions with buzzwords like “paradigm shift,” “ideation,” and disruption. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the science behind creativity, why distractions can be good things, and ways to bring out the creativity in you.
- In what ways can creativity be as asset to the business analyst and their work products?
- What sparks creativity?
- Can someone’s ability to be creative be nurtured and developed?
