VTL September Meeting “The Evolution of the Strategic Business Analyst”

Posted by Mike Knapp in Vancouver Technology Leaders 07 Sep 2011

We have some fantastic speakers lined up for the next few Vancouver Technology Leaders meetings. I’ve already lined up speakers for September, November, January and maybe even March’s events!

This month we’re focusing on strategic business analysis, a core skill for growing IT leaders. Andrew Kowalewski will be leading an interactive discussion on the evolution of a strategic business analyst.

Our Topic

The Evolution of the Strategic Business Analyst

Andy will briefly explore the evolution of the BA role and then explore the aspects of strategic business analysis and its importance to any organization. He will talk a little bit about the types of BA roles that are currently at play and also talk about the BA in the overall scheme of solution delivery life cycles (SDLC). He will try to promote some discussion on what the term €œstrategic business analyst€ may mean to your organization.

Our Speaker

Andy Kowalewski has worked in virtually every role in Information Technology since 1972. He has worked both on the technology side programming and designing complex business systems and has most recently focused his efforts on business analysis and business process management. Andy has worked both in the private and public sectors and has worked on scores of IT projects including construction of a custom ERP, implementation of off the shelf COTS solutions, development of logistics software solutions, systems integration efforts and strategic business envisioning. He is currently working on a book on business process management and is working with and for several large BC organizations developing and delivering BA training courses and case studies. Andy has presented in the past at IIBA events and the BA Project World Conferences in Vancouver.
