On December 8th, TwentyEighty Strategy Execution and Modern Analyst partnered to present a webinar on the evolving role of the business analyst (BA). In this webinar, Michael S. Zambruski, senior instructor with Strategy Execution, uses the context of the Enterprise Triple Constraint (Zambruski, 2015), which is the integration of strategy, analysis, and implementation to explore how the BA discipline has changed.
Zambruski emphasizes that the role of the BA incorporates more than just requirements gathering and administrative tasks. It now contributes into high-level decision-making, and in doing so, the discipline has made significant progress in earning the same level of professionalism as strategic planning and project management.
In doing so, Zambruski explores how BAs are being recognized as key ingredients for optimizing success and minimizing risk. As Zambruski states, without the precision and discipline of what the business analyst can do, a project manager is left with gaps. Gaps create uncertainty. And uncertainty is merely a synonym for risk.
