“I am Laura Carty, a business analysis practitioner currently working in the Energy sector. For me, I enjoy the variety within business analysis – not only the daily tasks and responsibilities, but how it is used differently across organisations and industries. I am a naturally curious, problem solver and ‘being’ a BA offers the opportunities to work with business and technology people, to identify and understand problems, to collaborate on finding solutions and then testing that the change or solution is fit for purpose.
You’ll see many job titles such as ‘IT Business Analyst’ ‘Infrastructure Business Analyst’ ‘Insert-Technology Product here Business Analyst’ to name a few. However, my belief is that solid business analysis skills enable you to work and learn across most domains …. I’ve even been known to use my BA skills when not having a business analyst title 😊 For me, business analysis is connecting, understanding, and collaborating as professionals – oh and a couple of documented artefacts are usually produced too!”
