Where should strategy become reality? In change projects. With business analysis perfectly positioned to connect the dots from theory to practice, from idea to solution.

Enter the strategic BA, who helps the team in finding answers to the following questions:

● How do you formulate good goals that guide execution without restricting creativity?

● How do you deal with stakeholders who know the solution before having investigated the problem?

● What is the importance of deep listening, and how do you do it?

● Why do we need to think about options and alternatives, and how do you facilitate their discovery?

● Should we still be doing projects? Is there a better alternative?

● What are the strategic BA’s new roles in a world where strategy = execution?


● Appreciate the importance of strategic thinking

● Understand how to constructively challenge stakeholders' input

● Rethink the concept of projects and business cases


Briefly about the speaker: 

Filip loves bridging business analysis and innovation and mixes both in his work as a speaker, trainer, coach, author and consultant.

As co-founder of the BA & Beyond Conference and IIBA Brussels Chapter president, Filip has been a driving force in fostering the BA profession and community. Filip’s dedication was recognized with the 2022 IIBA® EMEA Region Volunteer of the Year Award.
