Hello <<First name>>.

The next BA & Beyond conference is not yet around the corner, but we don't want to keep you waiting for inspiration.

On Tuesday 1 October, we are pleased to have international speaker Kathy Berkidge back in Belgium for a full day workshop.

On top of that, we host an evening event where Jurgen Claes will share Acerta's experience with Robotic Process Automation and the role of Business Analysis, and Pieter-Jan Pauwels from Digipolis will bring a practical case of how Internet of Things improves a museum visitor's experience.

Business Analyst & Product Owner

How Mindfulness helps you keep the Balance

Today's BA is a chameleon, adapting to circumstances and fulfilling many roles in any project or organisation. Particularly in agile projects, many BAs now play the dual role of product owner, or business ambassador, as well as analyst. In some teams, BAs also play the role of user experience designer, team lead, change manager, technical analyst, and / or solution tester, perhaps even dabbling in technical design, data analytics or even development.

In Kathy's practical and interactive workshop, you will learn:
  • Ways to enhance common BA practices.
  • How to communicate more effectively.
  • What is mindfulness and how it helps BAs become more effective.
  • How mindfulness helps improve concentration and cope with stress.
  • Techniques for clearer thinking and better decision making.

RPA, IoT, BA and the human side

Jurgen Claes is manager business transition at HR service provider Acerta. One of the challenges he and his team have is the automation of processes.

Jurgen will discuss
  • The business case for process automation through RPA.
  • Practical experiences on how to start, create a roadmap, build a team, ...
  • Realisations and results.
  • Hurdles: what vendors and consultants do not tell you.

Pieter-Jan Pauwels is a social worker with a heart for communication and a brain for civic technology. At Foresight by Digipolis, his mantra is "If technology is the answer, what was the question?"

Pieter-Jan will present the results of Museum of Things for People, a research project at Design Museum Gent that investigates how Internet of Things can improve the museum visitor's experience. He will explain the human, technological and legal impact.
  • Human: which interactions are useful, which are intrusive?
  • Technological: what are the advantages and preconditions of technologies like beacons, LIDARs, smart cameras, ...?
  • Legal: how do we deal with privacy and data capture?
