The Effective BA - Going from Good to Great!
Building the Foundation For Change 

Speaker: Paula Bell, CBAP, CEO/President,  Paula A. Bell Consulting, LLC

In order for anything to be successful it must start with a foundation. For example, before you build a house you must have a foundation, before you become a business analyst you must build a foundation (skill set and knowledge), and before you make changes you must have a foundation for a change (the process). One thing that is constant is change. The reason projects exists is because there is a need for change.

What attendees will receive out of this presentation: 
  1. Why a change management process is needed
  2. What real change is
  3. How to create a change management process
