Onramping and training business analysts is no longer limited to basic business analysis skills; BAs need soft skills. They need mature skills in: communication, leadership, conflict resolution, negotiation, prioritization, critical thinking, and abstraction and decomposition.
Creating a BA Center of Excellence (BA COE – sometimes known as a Requirements COE) is a proven method for effectively maturing BA competency and effectiveness in a BA team. A BA COE provides a platform for assessing BA skills and maturing BA skills, implementing consistent methods, utilizing tools, and ensuring metrics are used to continuously iterate on the COE implementation. Further, BA COEs enable businesses to better align BA efforts with business strategy.
Seilevel mentors sit side-by-side with your BAs to teach how to use RML to create software requirements and to mature both soft and analytical skills. Our goal in mentorship and education is to share the Seilevel approach and best practices so your team can execute our methodology, identify overlapping and missing requirements, and ultimately cut scopes of projects to save value time and money.
