Bola Adesope

Senior Consultant, Business Agility Deloitte

The world is changing and changing fast. In the last 2 years, the world in general has experienced a lot of changes. Changes in the way we work, changes in the way we relate, changes in the way we live and changes in the way we transact.   

While the core of Business Analysis still remains the same, the approach and focus of Business Analysis must evolve as the world is changing.

My trends: Playfulness and internally focused development. I’m creating a Business Analysis Centre of Excellence for their Asia Pacific countries for my client. It’s the opportunity for skills exchange, universal tools and techniques, development pathways, collaboration, and ultimately, increasing the status of the Business Analyst in an organisation.

The world of tomorrow is more uncertain than ever, and the most successful Business Analysts are going to be the ones that embrace that uncertainty with excitement, a tool box full of ideas that adapt and flex and respond, and an enthusiasm to see OTHERS success as their own definition of being a successful business analyst.

Being a business analyst is much more than the title.
  
The BABOK says it best, “A business analyst is any person who performs business analysis tasks described in the BABOK® Guide, no matter their job title or organizational role.”   
  
Don’t limit yourself to a job title.

The earth struggles with many environmental problems, and organizations’ consciousness of these problems has increased.

Since we design products, solutions, services, and processes that change people's lives and the world, we have the chance to make an impact. Only being agile and product-centric will not be enough, we need to integrate sustainability viewpoint into the product design and development processes to increase the social value.

Karl Wiegers

Principal Consultant, Process Impact

As people look ahead to new trends in business analysis, they shouldn’t lose sight of established practices that we know work.  

Perhaps the most important lesson is that a usage-centric approach to requirements will meet customer needs better than a feature-centric approach.

Ryland Leyton

Senior Business Analyst and Agile Coach Cognizant, Microsoft Business Group

In 2022 I’m intending to focus on these three things:  
  
1. Creating analysis plans that let you be transparent, visible, accountable, and collaborative with your project manager, key stakeholder/sponsor, and other team members.  
  
2. The use of visualizations & models, in particular the context diagram.   
  
3. Developing the consultative mindset practices of the Business Analysis professionals I work with.

I sincerely hope that in 2022, business analysis can finally claim its rightful place in the business arena … even more than it has ever done before.  
  
The business analyst title or the concept of business analysis as a role or even a profession, will be more and more abandoned.
