Lean strategy execution: the BA’s cup of tea?

Thursday, April 21, 2016 -
6:00pm to 9:00pm


Business stakeholders want projects to deliver fast. They often come to the project team with a clear view of the solution, expecting a quick start and not leaving much room or time for challenging and proposing alternatives. However, this mind set carries with it an important risk: blindly building the proposed solution does not guarantee business value.

People in a BA role (like business analysts and architects, but also product managers, process owners, customer journey managers and so on) often have the analytical skills and corporate overview to put the proposed solution in perspective and identify potential pitfalls hindering the proposed solution from delivering value. More importantly, they usually are well positioned in the organisation to connect the dots between the stakeholder’s goals and the solution implementation.


Through a combined experience of 10 years as business consultant and a prior 10 years in software engineering and research, Filip Hendrickx is able to connect strategy and implementation. He founded altershape to help established organisations become corporate startups. He also is an active member of the IIBA Brussels chapter.

Filip helps customers define and establish their long term vision through short term improvements and innovations. To do this, he follows a structured yet pragmatic approach, by bridging BA with lean startup and innovation techniques.

Filip is passionate about the customer experience, using digital transformation as a means to an end.

Expose enablers: How will the proposed solution help achieve these goals? Identify and validate hypotheses: Are we really sure the proposed solution is the right one?
