About This Webinar
We live in a constantly changing world, life is busy with news available 24*7 and many distractions to grab our attention. Business change is becoming increasingly complex and rapid with digital transformation and the move to agile working practices.
Working in this environment and faced with changes that alter the fundamental ways an organisation operates; it is more important than ever to be prepared, cultivate a positive mindset, and look after personal wellbeing to guard against burnout and poor health.
Business Analysts need to be interested, curious and creative to navigate their way through large business transformation programmes to deliver great outcomes. To do this, they must be tough both physically and mentally so they can work at their best. But does this come at the cost of poor outcomes for themselves?
This conversation will explore organisational culture, the impact transformation programmes have on this and how developing a positive mindset can assist in managing motivation, wellbeing and building resilience
