Are your analysts frustrated?
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 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"

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!
