Jen Kalz Presents at IIBA SEW Chapter Meeting

Mar 28
Location: Robert W Baird Vandenberg Room – Galleria Level 777 E Wisconsin Ave Milwaukee, WI 53202
The IIBA, or International Institute of Business Analysis, is an international not-for-profit professional association for Business Analysis professionals. A business analyst works as a liaison among stakeholders in order to elicit, analyze, communicate and validate requirements for changes to business processes, policies and information systems. The business analyst understands business problems and opportunities in the context of the requirements and recommends solutions that enable the organization to achieve its goals.

2017 Meeting Presentations will be based on the BACCM – Business Analysis Core Competency Model:  Change, Need, Solution, Stakeholder, Value, and Context.  This month’s presentation is focused on SOLUTION.

One of the most effective techniques listed in the BABOK is Prototyping. Often users don't know what they want or what they don't want until they see it. When developing software applications this technique can be one of the most powerful tools in Business Analyst's toolkit. This presentation will cover the basics of utilizing this technique including how to incorporate this little thing called User Experience.
1.       Know when and why to use prototyping as a technique on a project
2.       Understand the different levels of fidelity when using the prototyping technique
3.       Get best practices when using prototyping to enhance the user experience
