Managing Business Analysts

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

BAs are passionate about their work and, as a result, need very little outside motivation. They are driven to solve problems and improve the way work gets done. They are naturally inquisitive and love to learn new things. Functional managers who are able to direct this passion and energy will achieve significant organizational improvements.

This presentation is derived from a chapter of the new IIBA book, Managing Business Analysts. While managing BAs can be similar to managing other employees in many ways, BAs by nature have unique characteristics and thrive under effective management support. Managers who want to maximize the potential contributions of BAs to their organization should create a productive work environment, make appropriate work assignments, oversee planning, and encourage professional growth by coaching and monitoring progress.
