On Wednesday 7 August, 21 business analysis practitioners turned up at the Novotel in Hamilton to hear from four speakers from the NZ chapter of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA).
After a great introduction from Janine Andrews, they went on to talk about what IIBA does for its members, the benefits of professional certification, and how varied our role is. This was followed by two workshops:
Overall, the attendees were highly engaged and interactive, and reported afterwards that they found the session highly relevant and provided some useful insights.
The purpose of the roadshow is to enthuse and encourage BAs to collaborate on organising more events, which IIBA is happy to support, and from some of the discussions overheard over drinks it seems there are a few volunteers willing to work with Janine to revive their regular networking events. I look forward to attending a future IIBA Hamilton event.
Next stop, New Plymouth.
