 Learning Objectives

BA&Beyond 2020 Consists of the Third Belgian BA Conference in Brussels on March 26th:

The Third Belgian BA Conference in Brussels is a conference for business analysts by business analysts, with approximately 25 interesting presentations in total, various workshops, side tracks and a dedicated BA tools & techniques exhibition.

Our participants are business analysts, business architects, process improvers, solution designers, project managers, change managers, ... Most of them are from Belgium and the Netherlands, but because the conference is entirely in English, we also get people from other European countries. In 2019, we had 235 participants and speakers from 16 different countries ! This year, we are looking forward to gather over 300 people on March 26th, 2020 in Brussels. To accomplish this, we have a high-quality programme, we maintain a low entrance fee (thanks to our sponsors), and we focus on modern, applied, bold and "beyond" business analysis.

BA&Beyond 2020 also consists of a Mid-Conference Workshop Day in Brussels on March 25th:

Partners for Progress

Lori Silverman is Shift Strategist, Founder and CEO of Partners for Progress®. She is also Adjunct Professor at Golden Gate University.

When radio/TV hosts interviewed Lori Silverman about her book, Stories Trainers Tell, they'd ask: "Can story be used for more than training?" Her next book, Wake Me Up When the Data Is Over, highlights the findings. With her third bestseller, Business Storytelling for Dummies, she solidified her thought leadership in the field. One chapter became a unique framework for transforming data into insight and action. This combined with earlier consulting experiences with Chevron, Valmet, and the U.S. Air Force, grew her prominence in data literacy.

As the Shift Strategist, over 30 years, Lori has helped firms like McDonalds, Target, GE, and Phillips North America strategize about their future and navigate messy, complex changes. Keynoting at more than 80 events, she's inspired thousands to take action. Lori is also an adjunct professor in Golden Gate University's Industrial and Organizational Psychology Master's program.
