In early August 2013, four intrepid business analysis practitioners will set off for a talking tour through Hamilton (7th August), New Plymouth (8th), and Dunedin (9th).
These cities have a significant number of people employed as business analysis practitioners, however there are currently no events supported from the NZ chapter of International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA), while Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch are well supported.
This wasn’t good enough for the guy in charge of membership services for IIBA NZ, Andrew Willoughby, so he proposed a three-day tour to these three regional centres of BA employment, with locally organised speaking engagements for people to find out about their IIBA and other topics of interest.
With the backing of the chapter board, Andrew rounded up two other speakers, myself (David Morris) and Andrew McNaughton, and was joined by the new chapter president, Richard Wood, who saw it as a great opportunity to get out and meet the membership.
After a brief introduction from Andrew Willoughby, the program runs as:
Then two workshops:
Join the two Andrews, Richard, and me over the next three days as we visit each city and explore what the local BAs are interested in.
