Business Analysis Extension Techniques - The Social Context

Whilst other workshops on facilitation, interviewing and communication skills provide tools that work effectively when things are ‘going right’, this workshop focuses on techniques for managing the “difficult situations” when things may be ‘going wrong’.

The 2-day workshop presents a series of techniques for influencing stakeholders, addressing conflict and managing other difficult situations that can arise during analysis. Participatory exercises and roleplays are based on scenarios likely to be encountered by a BA.
