BACoE TRAINING AND MENTORING


"I am known as a problem solver now."

 

"BACoE's Concept of Operations removed the communication barriers between the different stakeholders and management levels. Now everyone is on the same page, solutions make sense and my customers are satisfied."

                                                            

"The IT project was a success, but the customer does not use it. They said we automated a cumbersome process that slowed their ability to meet their business targets.  BACoE's Business Requirements taught me to listen to my stakeholders rather than to rush to automation. Process analysis is the key to great solutions. Together we are now building solutions that work." 

BACoE did business analysis on professional BA courses. The results showed that most courses are IT centric and barely address how to analyze the business.

Business Analysis is more than IT Requirements. Business Analysis determines how to use the organization's limited resources (people, process, money, time, technology, facilities, etc.) to meet or exceed the organization's business goals. IT requirements are only a subset of the complete solution.  

BACoE aligns quality management, change management, requirements, process management, six sigma and system development life cycle (SDLC) concepts into a practical set of BA skills that ANYONE can use.

Deming said, "Improve your overall organization by having

each person take a step toward quality."
