Great Business Analysts Think Like Freaks

Regular Session

In today's competitive market, employers increasingly depend on Business Analysts to act as change agents.  This is never more true than when in an agile environment.  Agile BAs hold the powerful position of Influencer - providing the analysis and evidence needed to support our organizations' strategic directions and decision-making.  In their book, Think Like a Freak, authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner provide a blueprint for critical thinking, offering to ‘retrain our brains’ toward a new approach to problem-solving.  Faye explores this framework, and how the popular economists have used it to analyze complex economic problems.  She then ties that framework to analysis techniques that can help us to formulate and dissect our own complex business problems.  Fans of the Freaknomics series will enjoy how Levitt and Dubner can show us how to become more inquisitive, investigative and thorough.  Attendees leave with practical, concrete ideas of how they, too, can think like freaks immediately upon returning to the office.
A passion for discussing new techniques for requirements elicitation and analysis.
