In this #BACommunity webinar we were joined by Jennifer Bedell to discuss the similarities and differences between business analysis and change management.

About the Webinar
Business analysis is a broad role and this breadth can lead to areas of overlap and even conflict.  One of the disciplines that business analysis intersects with is that of change management.  Change Managers can be a BAs best friend if there’s a clear agreement over roles, responsibilities and how to collaborate.  In this interactive session, we’ll explore:

  • What change management is, how it differs from business analysis, and why they are stronger together
  • Areas of possible conflict and how to avoid them
  • How to agree areas to collaborate on
  • Shared tools and techniques that are relevant for both disciplines (and how these can be shared to save time)
