Our consultants are experienced business analysts who have extensive expertise and have worked in senior business analysis roles.
We provide a range of consultancy services that enable BA teams to improve and extend their capability in order to deliver effective and relevant services to their organisations.
Effective business analysis services will offer the following benefits to organisations:
- Improved project validity and wise investment
- Increased stakeholder engagement and ‘buy in’
- Reduction in re-work and increased reuse
- Reduction in staff attrition
- Additional credibility for the BA team
- Greater consistency and standardisation of approach
- Leverage of organisational capabilities
Our consultancy service includes:
An engagement of this type involved reviewing deliverables from business analysis assignments, for example business cases, reports or requirements documentation. Improvements can then be recommended and embedded across the team.
We have been able to meet requests from BA teams for support in adopting and embedding new agile practices. This has included BA role definition and the adoption of new techniques.
AssistKD provide BA Practice leadership on an interim basis. An interim solution can be used for contingency cover, to establish a new practice or to provide an uplift in capability.
AssistKD associates provide BA delivery resource with the ability to uplift capability as part of day to day mentoring. AssistKD consultants can support and guide less experienced business analysts as they conduct their assignments. This is in contrast to traditional delivery only solutions that provide no legacy uplift of capability.
The use of accepted standards and frameworks allow us to assess levels of maturity within a business analysis practice. Any benchmarking can be used to assess whether the practice is fit for purpose or if there are potential areas for development.
Attracting and retaining the highest levels of available talent in a competitive market is a common challenge. A review of current processes can improve the chances of securing the best available people.
Standards can be developed through the take-up of BA tools and techniques that provide for more widely accepted delivery.
