July Lunch and Learn: Looking Outside Out – Using Ecosystems to Improve Business Analysis

Chapter Lunch Event

David Hall

David Hall, in February, gave us a deep-dive on business ecosystems and looking at 3 types of analysis:

1) Inside-out (who and what will this project/solution impact)

2) Outside-in (who and what will have an impact on the project/solution)

3) Outside-out (what impact will this have on the who and what beyond our project’s/solution’s immediate impact).

The first two are fairly common, but the third step is often overlooked and can carry huge impacts to the project. Let's have lunch and take a closer look with David and Brian Disney, a Principal Business Analyst. Both David and Brian are from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in our HealthIT division.

April Lunch and Learn: Agile Requirements in a Waterfall World

Chapter Lunch Event

There are some great Agile approaches to gathering software requirements, but what do you do when your organization is still stuck in some of its waterfall ways?  Some practices may still apply, but some may actually be detrimental if the project is being run in a more traditional way. Let’s talk about these practices and which ones can still provide value even in a less Agile environment, and how you might use some of them to slide in some more Agile principles into a waterfall project.
