Class Description

Effective immediately in response to COVID-19, most Technology Training classes will be delivered online until further notice.

In advance of each session, Tech Training will provide you with a Zoom link to your class, along with any required class materials.

Adapting to technological change means seeing things from a different point of view and applying technologies to help achieve the goals of an organization. That is where Business Analysis comes in. In this session, we will discuss the importance of the Business Analyst (BA) in digital transformation and the roles and responsibilities that a BA performs in the process.
