Stakeholder Engagement in a global environment:
Keeping them off Facebook and in your conference call

When you receive an invitation to a conference call, do you think "woohoo!  An hour to clean out my inbox"?  Or do you expect to accomplish something?  In this session, learn how to convert your remote stakeholders into active participants.  Ideally, we would have an unlimited budget for travel and sticky notes.  Without that, we need to be creative in how we keep our stakeholders interested when they also have day jobs.
 
Key learning objectives:  Preparing for a productive virtual meeting – Tips to encourage participation – Engagement outside of scheduled meetings

About the speaker: Jennifer Bedell
"I have a meeting at midnight, then another at 6am".  Working in a global environment has its challenges, but is a very rewarding experience.
 
Jennifer has worked in a global environment since 2011 and still loves it!  Her main objective is to ensure that global teams have the skills and resources necessary to adopt new tools and processes.
 
Since entering the IT World in 1999, Jennifer has held roles as a Business Analysis, Quality Analyst, Scrum Leader, Change Manager and Solutions Manager.  She started her career in the insurance industry and moved into IT after representing the business on a system upgrade project.  Jennifer has worked with small, medium and large companies.
 
Almost every position today involves some type of virtual team so Jennifer has learned a few techniques to enhance communication across borders.

Welcome to the Tampa Bay IIBA® website!

The Business Analyst (BA) role in today's organizations is becoming increasingly important.  Some might describe this role as the "bridge" between the IT organization and Business units, commanding fluency in both languages.  Business units rely on a BA to translate business goals and objectives into requirements, and IT staff rely on a BA to translate technical concepts and components into business language.  As the BA role gains prominence, the on-going growth of Business Analysis practictioners is key.
