Description

Welcome! In coordination with the local Cedar Rapids IIBA chapter and ASPE, our organizing committee is excited to host our second annual Cedar Rapids Business Analysis Development Day (BADD)! This will be another fantastic opportunity for you to expand your skills set, learn about the latest industry trends, and network with your colleagues. This conference is not just for B.A.'s; Cedar Rapids BADD is a technical conference for Business Analysts, Project Managers, IT Managers, and anyone else, whether expert or beginner, involved in technology. You will also be eligible to claim up to 6 IIBA CDUs and 6 PMI PDUs for attending. We are so happy to be returning to Cedar Rapids! If you require any accommodation(s) while attending our conference that are based on ADA compliancy, please contact Kyle Anderson at kanderson@aspeinc.com.

The overall theme of this year's Cedar Rapids BADD is Becoming the Complete Business Analyst.

Based on feedback from Cedar Rapids BADD 2018 attendees, and in an effort to provide deeper understanding into how business analysis continues to evolve, 2 educational tracks are available over the course of the day.

Data Analytics - It's all about the data! Follow this track and get the opportunity to focus in-depth on topics such as Big Data and Data Analysis.

Technology Revolution - It's here, it's coming, what else is next? Follow this track and focus in-depth on topics such as DevOps, Digital Transformation, Cyber Security and more!

The B.A. role is continuously evolving day by day, and the ever changing requirements and opinions of what a Business Analyst is, has importance in the success of major projects. Enterprises depend on Business Analysts to propel products and projects while connecting team members. This event focuses on the future of the Business Analyst role, while providing educational advancement to those who communicate with Business Analysts every day.

STAY TUNED AS WE BEGIN TO ANNOUNCE OUR 2019 SPEAKER LINEUP!

Morning Keynote: Sinnika Waugh - Learning to Fail in Order to Grow, Adapt, and Succeed

Every day that I end smarter than I started it is a good day. Certainly, we all prefer those days where the learning is easy and filled with accolades and triumphs, but sometimes it’s the lessons of failure that stick the best. As we seek to grow our Business Analysis careers, we often shy away from failure or even the possibility of failure, rather than embracing it as a way to adapt and achieve success more readily. Join engaging career Business Analyst, Coach, and business owner Sinikka Waugh as she shares specific lessons from her own career and candidly offers up tales of how failures brought her closer to success. 1) The one where the thing I wanted wasn’t available 2) The one with Black Friday 3) The one where I wasn’t ready 4) The one where I had to put myself out there more 5) The one with the walking pneumonia 6) The one where more was worse, not better.


BRAND NEW Keynote: Bob "the BA" Prentiss - Battle for the Future of Business Analysis: 5 Key Strategies to Prepare for Your Future

Technology is rapidly changing to meet those needs and in turn, is changing how we need to approach business analysis and the requirements that drive product changes. What does this mean to the profession of Business Analysis? What will the future hold? Guess what? The future is already here and if you are not paying attention you could be left behind. Are you ready for your technical future? Are you ready to fight for the Battle of the Planet of The Business Analysts?
