Join Haydn Thomas for an in-depth discussion in this video On business analysis for large vs. small businesses, part of Insights from a Business Analyst.
Business analysis is a very scalable skill.…There are some organizations that you may go into…that are quite small, where you're actually having…close proximity to a lot of the individuals…and the key stake holders and decision makers.…As you move into larger organizations,…and moving further away from the decision makers,…the skills of actually documenting and crafting…the information, and be able to make sure that…you get the tune out of one person's head,…and get it into another person's head,…so we're singing the same tune,…becomes more challenging…on larger and bigger organizations,…because you don't actually have access…to the people who are ultimately gonna be…making the decisions.…
The key element with smaller projects is that…you have the intimacy of…having some assumed knowledge going into it.…One of the things I find in a lot of projects is that…assumptions are where projects really fall over.…I have a rule that says assumptions suck.…Fundamentally, assumptions are things that we…believe to be true.…
