BA & Beyond aims to be the catalyst for bringing Business Analysis (BA) expertise together and moving the BA profession forward. Visit the BA & Beyond Web site to learn more and join our dedicated and low-volume mailing list.

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. The first edition in 2018 had 120 participants, the second one in 2019 had 235 participants, and 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.

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 participants and speakers from 16 different countries !

Like last year, we have a pre-conference workshop day with several experts on the day before before the the big conference in Brussels, Thursday 26th of March, 2020. Lori Silverman and Alec Sharp present half-day workshops on "Facts Tell, Stories Sell" and "Getting to the Essence", and Karen Peirens presents a full-day workshop on facilitation skills.
