Yet, so often our stakeholders are blindsided by sickly-sweet silver-bullet solutions that seem so simple and assume a neat linear relationship between cause and effect. The trouble is that things are rarely that simple, and in trying to navigate the organisational 'spaghetti', so often we find it hard to get beyond short-term fire- fighting. Sound familiar? Then this course is for you!

    Why you should attend this course:

    In this practical and hands-on one day course, you will hear about the importance of systems thinking in a business analysis context and will have the opportunity to practise using a range of tools that can be used to systemically analyse a problem situation. The course contains a wide range of exercises which are used to ensure that the learning translates to real-world scenarios.

    It is suitable for beginners who have little or no formal knowledge of systems thinking techniques, and can act as a useful refresher for those who have some existing experience. It is of particular relevance to those that work early in the business change lifecycle, before a project is initiated.

    Who should attend this course:

    This course is well suited for anyone needing to understand how to analyse tricky problems early in the project lifecycle. It will be of particular interest to BA teams that are seeking early business engagement, or those that are working with multiple stakeholder groups. This is likely to include:

    Each delegate receives a printed copy of the Blackmetric Course Manual which contains a concise summary of the course.
