Next week, I begin my European road trip. Four cities and two conferences in ten days. How does that work?
Well, the first event is the combined Austrian/German Business Analysis Development Day being held in Salzburg, Austria on October 11. Elizabeth Larson of Watermark Learning is the opening keynote, speaking on influence, and I wrap it up with a discussion on the future of the business analysis profession.
On Saturday, I will check out the sights in Salzburg and perhaps sing a few songs from The Sound of Music (yes, this is where it was filmed). I head to Vilnius, Lithuania, early Sunday morning.
Starting on Monday, October 14, I will participate in the BPM in Practice 2013 conference which is being held in three cities over five days: first location Vilnius; Wednesday, October 16, we move to Warsaw, Poland; and the last event is held in Hamburg, Germany, on Friday, October 18.
Roger Burlton of BPTrends will share the spotlight with me along with our host Darius Silingus, from No Magic, and a number of other notable speakers on business process management. My topic is the Business Analysis perspective on Business Process Management. I will share some of my insights with you in future posts so stay tuned. But in the meantime, here is a hint: BPM is tool in the BA toolkit and a Business Process Analyst is specialist Business Analyst. But more on that later…
