I am what we can call a professional BA: right after university, I started my career as a BA with a small consulting firm in Montréal, with limited experience gained from past summer jobs, but no real professional background.
Almost 10 years have passed since, allowing me to grow as a business analyst, mainly within the telecommunications industry, working first for Bell Canada and now for Vidéotron. I touched many areas, from business process analysis & optimization to eliciting system requirements, and from quality assurance to training and change management.
Through all these years, I kept a real interest in making things simple, explaining complex concepts to clients, coworkers and users, and coaching junior analysts. This probably explains why I’m also a lecturer at HEC Montréal since 2007, teaching undergraduates the basis of system analysis 🙂
This led me to finally launch this blog, allowing me to share my passion for business analysis and helping BAs around the world to make organizations better (at least I hope so!).
That being said, sit down and enjoy the ride to better business analysis!
