A look back at the IIBA 2023 conference day: Innovations, Meetings and Perspectives

The IIBA day of September 26, 2023 was a memorable event for all Business Analysis professionals. For us, it was an exceptional opportunity to present our product, the Ba Toolkit, and to meet professionals in the field.

The IIBA: a Pillar of Business Analysis:

The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) is a professional association dedicated to the promotion and development of Business Analysis. It provides an exchange, training and certification platform for business analysts around the world. It is with the objective of bringing together lots of professionals in the field that the IIBA Geneva organized a conference day on September 26 in which we participated.

The conferences that marked us:

  • Holism in business analysis: understanding the organization as a whole and its components , presented by Stefan Bossuwé. Stefan introduced us to the world of #HolisticBusinessAnalysis, an approach that views the organization as a whole and not as a simple collection of several parts. He emphasized the importance of seeing beyond tasks and techniques and embracing a holistic view.
  • How to use data and generative AI (GPT) to perform in business analysis? Conference given by Thibault Pierotti and Rémi Sabonnadière. This presentation was an exciting exploration of the impact of generative AI on business analysis. They showed us how ChatGPT-based tools can transform business processes, increase efficiency and drive business growth.
  • Evolving as a BA: drawing inspiration from UX to build engaging and effective workshops by Marie Kuter: She shared her expertise in workshop design and animation, offering principles and tips for building effective and engaging workshops.
  • Presentation of the IIBA Geneva study groups by Christine Du, Pierre Alain Dubois and David Laou: A presentation of collaborative training allowing you to understand BABOK, the global business analysis benchmark.
