The BABOK talk: The Core Concept Model, why include it?
The BABOK talk: The Core Concept Model why is it used? What the heck is the core concept model? Why did they include it in version 3 as the basis for all BA tasks. The core concept model is the way to look at all BA work, and all knowledge areas and tasks in the BABOK. It is the simplest way to think about everything we do and how we do it, in order to frame how to think about our work and how to think about what tasks or knowledge areas we need to use in a given context.

The BABOK talk: Are the tasks and knowledge areas in order?
The BABOK talk: Are the tasks and knowledge areas in order? The answer is no! The knowledge areas are intended to be a collection of tasks that are related. It is my experience that related for the BABOK means they have similar inputs, outputs, or the tasks of a knowledge area might be related in that they could be done in sequence, but do not need to be done in sequence. In this episode we dive into the confusion people often experience about the organization of the BABOK.

How to move your career forward: Teach first!
ย ย In this episode I talk about the importance of teaching what you learn, as soon as possible. ย What I find with most things I learn is I will not use the information for maybe even a year, even if I have made a very targeted choice about what to learn. ย ย Although, what I find is if I teach first, so I learn something and then teach what I understand about the topic right away I not only retain more of the information, but I also find out what I enjoy about the topic more deeply. ย ย If you would like to find out more about Being a Biz Analyst, hop on over to my YouTube channel Being a Biz Analyst

Lead with value, not your title!
Lead with value not your title focuses on what I see a lot, which is people placing a great deal of emphasis on their titles; sometimes it becomes their identity. Let us breakdown position titles, roles, and skills. Let us find out where our value to a project or organization comes from and what the value, if any, their is in having position titles, and roles. I close with how does this affect your career change to Biz Analyst!!! Biz Analyst potential to Biz Analyst career!!!

Demonstrate you care in the application process!๐Ÿ˜
Have a long-term mindset for applications process. This is just like we talked about in "Building a Strong Network". You do not want to be that person, who might not be there for the long haul; demonstrate you care!๐Ÿ˜

Building a trusted network
Networking often takes two approaches from what I have experienced. The first approach is speed networking where you hand out as many business cards as possible, and just try to see what sticks. The other is in the interest of building a network of people similar to your family and friends. The choice is yours, listen what one I choose, why, and how I develop my network using that perspective. Being a Biz Analyst Biz Analyst Potential to Biz Analyst Career!!!๐Ÿ˜
