Business Analysis Activities – Video Series

What do business analysts do all day?

Do they sit in meetings and write things down like court stenographers?

Do they follow other people around and ask them many questions, like reporters?

Or do they sit in front of a computer screen, staring at rows of text and numbers?

Of course, all of these taken separately are gross oversimplifications and stereotypes. Yet, as junior analysts come for their first day of work, they may have a very vague idea about what their day will be like.

I wrote about this before in blog articles.

This time I’ve created a series of video shorts to paint the picture of the variety of business analysis activities.

Here are the first ten:
