Business analysts of tomorrow are the ones that bring agility and adaptability into every aspect of their work. Business Analysts need to be able to plan for tomorrow in an uncertain future.
What I mean by this, is does your plan incorporate places to pivot, to respond, to leverage, grow and learn AS you are doing the work? When things don’t go as plan, are you ready to just course correct, yet stay moving forward? When things work really well or something you never considered, are you prepared to capitalize on that insight and adapt the plan to the new reality success?
The world of tomorrow is more uncertain than ever, and the most successful Business Analysts are going to be the ones that embrace that uncertainty with excitement, a tool box full of ideas that adapt and flex and respond, and an enthusiasm to see OTHERS success as their own definition of being a successful business analyst.
