Webinar: Why BA competencies are needed to become circular

With Michael Boyle's presentation, IIBA Brussels chapter attracted a wide audience from many countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Canada and beyond. 

One of the founders of the Austrian chapter and CBAP certified, Michael clearly also is an expert in Circular Economy. With great presentation skills and by using the Butterfly Diagram for Circular Economy, everybody that wasn't so familiar with the subject was brought up to speed quickly. Using a case study was the perfect means to explain the essence of the presentation, how can BA skills contribute to becoming more sustainable.

Key are three steps: 

  • Awareness: is what I am doing sustainable, how can I improve;
  • Instruction: how to improve, what are chances of sticking;
  • Incentives: what's in this for me.

Problems start at the input. Stakeholder analysis to understand the real needs right at the beginning of a project is the start to reduce the waste during and at the end, due diligence must be done. Requirement elicitation; understanding the end-2-end process and a good design are key to limit waste. In conclusion, BA competencies need to be explained more and we as BAs have to sell/explain better what we can do and what the benefits are with one goal in mind: sustainability.
