Are you looking for a way to give back to the BA community? Do you want to help inform and inspire BAs of the future?
Then check out the BA School Day Initiative!
The BA School Day Initiative is a grass-roots community initiative championed by Christina Lovelock and Adrian Reed. The idea is to encourage BAs to go into a local school and give a presentation on business analysis. This will help spread awareness, and may even inspire some future BAs.
Many practising BAs found the role entirely serendipitously. This suggests that there is a lack of awareness of business analysis. If people don’t know about the role, then it’s impossible for them to steer their career towards it:
“Like many BAs, I was doing business analysis before I knew it was an actual job. My first job was for a local authority, specifying, procuring and implementing new IT systems. It took years before I discovered there was a career path for business analysts.”Christina Lovelock
“I worked for an insurance company and stumbled into business analysis. I was on an underwriting career path originally. It’s fortunate I found business analysis, as I love the profession so much. Plus I’d have been a lousy underwriter!”Adrian Reed
