Since 2009 AssistKD has supported and sponsored the BA Manager Forum. The Forum provides a means for anyone with managerial responsibility for Business Analysis to engage with their peers and share information at a strategic level. The management of BA resources is a relatively new and unique role and the Forum provides an opportunity to build common understanding and advance the BA profession as a whole. The Forum also acts as the awarding body for the Expert BA Award and has collaborated to help develop the International Advanced Diploma in Business Analysis.
Forum events are held twice a year, with the agenda for the day being set by those who regularly attend. The events are attended by over 100 practice leaders and are typically a mix of presentations, workshops and networking lunch.
Topics addressed at Forum events include; measuring BA performance, BAs influencing at the top table, marketing the BA role, BA capability frameworks and evaluating the maturity of BA practice.
