You maybe familiar with “Knowledge is power” quote by Francis Bacon, but knowledge applied to solve real world problems is even more powerful.
Today, I am pleased to announce another new series of BA interviews, which we are calling ‘CBAP-CCBA Success Cast’, a showcase of CBAPs and CCBAs who have made a difference in the real world practice – applying what they learnt as part of their certification journey. This will highlight how these practitioners used their updated knowledge of the business analysis framework to make a difference to the organizations they work for.
So, before we get onto the actual episode, I wanted to share this narrative with you. Knowledge being a source of power simply means it can help you DO things easily. It means you are in a better state to ACT as a result of knowing something.
So, if we represent this in an equation it would look like:
Knowledge = More ways of doing things = Being more adaptive = Power
In this premier episode of this series, I am excited to present Ren Dreyfus as our first guest. Her certification journey has been quite unique in that her trigger or tipping point to get certified was motivated by another CBAP (under interesting circumstances). She was already a great BA before being certified, but somehow lacked a bit of ‘stiffness’ in proposing something radical during one of her assignments.
She had worked on several domains and had many years of experience as a practicing BA before getting certified. Pursuing CBAP has helped her to practice with more confidence (to an already confident approach) and be more deliberate about proposing the best analysis and solution approaches for her clients.
