Whether you and your boss have made a conscious decision to have you manage a project, or it happened organically, you now need to do more than develop workflows, functional design specs, screen mock-ups or create other BA artifacts. In addition to doing your analysis work you now need to lead a project so what does that mean? This project is similar to “Project Management for the Beginner”, but customized with examples and case studies specifically for the Business Analyst.

This presentation will discuss the basics for successfully delivering a project on-time, on-budget with the desired scope, what artifacts are really needed vs. “optional”, as well as building a right-sized project plan. The major points to be covered include:

  • The top 10 most common mistakes a project manager makes, and how to overcome them
  • Project Charters – your savior
  • Communications - what you need to know and practice
  • How to build out your right-sized plan for easy on-going maintenance 
  • Interviewing techniques for gathering project data points

Successful completion of a project requires knowing the art and science of project management.  This seminar will deliver the blend of skills you will need to be a BA/PM hero.
