What's holding your analysts back?
The most common frustrations and challenges analysts face in their roles are inevitably linked to how they engage with stakeholders - and it can directly affect their performance level, their relationships and ultimately their job satisfaction.

"Stakeholders are vague with their requests"

"Stakeholders leave requests to the last minute"

"Stakeholders don't involve us early enough to add value"

"Stakeholders don't listen to us"

"Stakeholders cause re-work when they change their mind"

The "Making Analysis Work for Business" programme of workshops assists analysts in gaining control and addressing these sources of frustration whilst establishing a framework of principles, behaviours, and practices that will enable them to transition naturally into a consultative model of working.
 
By doing so, analysts can take more proactive control of their relationships rather than feeling constrained by the process and working in a reactive manner.
 
This benefits both the analyst and the stakeholder - win/win!

"I'm passionate about unlocking the full potential of your analysts."

I've used all of my 25+ years of experience managing and coaching analytical teams to distill the key behaviours and practices of exceptional analysts - those who are highly regarded and revered by stakeholders and the wider organisation.
My 'Making Analysis Work for Business' programme has been developed and refined over 15 years to provide a unique menu of workshops to help analytical teams fulfill their potential.

I'm proud to have worked with over 1,600 analysts on their journey to becoming the superstar analysts organisations need.


I'd be delighted to help your own analysts, and the workshops can be delivered in a variety of ways, so let's talk!
