IIBA Winnipeg is pleased to announce our Annual Spring Workshop! 


Bob the BA is back by popular demand! This time, to take you on a two-day immersive and interactive journey! 


May 23rd - Modern Business Analysis Techniques 

If you struggle with not getting enough information or time from stakeholders to get the job done you may want to rethink the techniques you have been using.  Businesses today are changing rapidly. The same old techniques that you have been using may not be living up to the agility and speed required to succeed in this new dynamic marketplace of change.  You need techniques that will energize your stakeholders, engage them in new ways that bring them to a new level of collaboration!  Whether you live in an Agile or Waterfall world (or somewhere in-between), whether you are Business Analyst, Project Manager, Leader or Subject Matter Expert, this class is right for your you and your organization.  There are well over 300 techniques that can be used on projects to elicit, analyze, make decision and gain consensus, but only a small portion of them are ever taught or are hidden in a book.  This course takes some of the best of the best to help you get extraordinary results!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn new BA techniques that will save you time
  2. Learn new techniques that elicit more information faster
  3. Learn new techniques that will engage your stakeholders and bring them to a new level of collaboration
