Business Analyst Learnings (BAL)

I was inspired to start this blog for a number of reasons. The first is that I wanted to provide useful resources for fellow Business Analysts. While starting out on my BA career, I found a number of useful resources but as is to be expected, they were not in one place. I decided to create a one-stop site containing all the useful resources I’ve encountered and used during my career. Hopefully, this site will become just as useful to you.

Another reason is that I wanted to improve as a Business Analyst.

I found that it is impossible to add value to others without some of it rubbing off on you. The more I blog, the better I get.

I also hope to expand my professional network, rub minds with like-minded BAs and meet more experts with whom to exchange knowledge and ideas.

Lastly, I’ve found the Internet to be a very useful place for taking, taking and taking. This is my way of giving back — one post at a time.

The views I express on this blog are solely mine and do not represent those of my employer, Enterco.

The Business Analyst Learnings Site is a platform to share what I have learnt and what I am still learning with other Business Analysts. Each article I post is crafted to ensure that you get something meaningful and practical that can be applied immediately on the job. This site shares core business analysis concepts, theories and ideas through simple lists and quotes that are easy to digest.
