The Art of Productive Conversations
Speaker Mindy Bohannon discusses top business analyst skills of asking targeted and probing questions and actively listening to the answers.
IIBA West Michigan welcomes guest speaker Mindy Bohannon for its evening speaker series event on Oct. 18 at 6 p.m.
Asking targeted and probing questions and then actively listening to the answers are top key business analyst skills. During this session, we will review the power we have in questions and the reward we get in the answers. First, understanding the difference in the categories of questions available to us and how each results in different information in responses. Next, we evaluate the different ways we listen, with active listening and other techniques, to continue delving further or begin anew.
