Facilitating a Successful Workshop:
Practical Tools to Make Your Next Workshop a Success

 So you need to facilitate a workshop to elicit information from the business, but where do you start? How do you plan a successful workshop? How do you identify who should attend and what format to use? How do you facilitate a group discussion and move the conversation forward? How do you document the responses from the participants and receive immediate feedback?

In this interactive session, we’ll discuss key characteristics to consider when planning a workshop. Victoria will share how she leverages tools like stakeholder analysis and the SIPOC to shape the discussion, and how to adapt the approach to the audience and location needs.
Whether you are an experienced business analyst or a novice, come prepared to share your questions and the lessons that you have learned over the years. We’ll have table discussions to learn from each other, so your contribution will result in tangible takeaways for yourself and others.

 Learning Objectives

• Understanding, empathizing, and advocating for your stakeholders is your primary objective as a business analyst.
• Preparation is key to a successful workshop.
• Always have a clear objective.
• Never start a meeting with a blank sheet of paper – do your homework.
• As the chief learner, create an environment of exploration and experimentation.
• Each person adds value, so encourage engagement from all participants.

Key Point:  Preparation is key to a successful workshop, so be sure to outline your goals for the workshop and know your audience. Tools such as the SIPOC and stakeholder analysis ensure the right people are at the table and that you meet your objectives.e latest phase of the Digital Revolution is happening all around us and bringing a wealth of opportunities and disruption to Business Analysis.
