The search for 2020's Business Analyst of the Year is now over. The Award is sponsored by AssistKD and IIBA UK and recognises excellence in business analysis.
This year saw a range of high calibre entries, so much so that the judges selected 8 rather than the normal 5 finalists. The 8 finalists attended an interview day on September 4th and from this talented field we are pleased to announce the winner is Taz Wafa.
Taz is a BA Manager with the Bank of England. He realised early in his career that too many projects were driven by technology and not derived from business needs, which caused him to seek a career in business analysis. He feels that BAs add most value when they are independent, representing the best interests of the business, and offer impartial and objective advice based on thorough analysis, research and understanding of the real business problems and issues.
In selecting Taz as the winner, the judges highlighted:
“An outstanding BA practice leader, a true ambassador for the profession and a team manager who prioritises his people's health and well-being.”
