The Central Iowa and Eastern Iowa Chapters of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) are proud to announce the 10th annual Iowa Business Analyst Development Day (IBADD) - “Moving Forward, (While Looking Back)”
Business Analysis at its best is the ability to adapt to and promote change. As businesses deal with constantly shifting working conditions, customer demands, technologies, operation costs, and the competition, business analysts need to ask the right questions and are at the forefront of change.
The focus for IBADD 2017 is on the evolving role of business analysis in the ever changing business and technology landscape by providing Business Analysts at all skill levels the opportunity to learn, practice and apply relevant tools and techniques from industry leading experts and each other.
IBADD 2017 invites Business Analysts and other industry experts in the community to share their knowledge with attendees. The IBADD content team is seeking presentation/workshop proposals on a wide range of topics pertinent to business analysis, delivered through various styles. Proposals for interactive presentations, hands-on workshops, facilitated discussions/forums or panel discussions are welcome.
You should know... the Des Moines area BA Community has one of the most active IIBA chapters. It boasts more than 340 active members, monthly meeting attendance averages of 128 people and IBADD 2016 brought in over 400 people. In addition to networking within this dynamic BA community, presenters also enjoy free conference admission, transportation to the event location from the airport, executive suite accommodations, and more.
