I am currently at the Building Business Capabilities Conference (sponsored by the International Institute of Business Analysts). I’ll try to cover some of the highlights in individual posts, but first I want to share some overall impressions.
This is a good, mid sized conference. There are more than 1,400 attendees, coming from more than 30 countries and 48 states. (note – still trying to figure out the missing state – I have met attendees from Hawaii and Idaho, so I am guessing Alaska and Montana)
I understand that until it was called the “Business Rules Conference” until 2010 when IIBA joined in and expanded the scope of the conference.
There are 8 simultaneous breakout sessions following “themes”
- Business Architecture
- Business Portfolio Management
- Business Strategy and Transformation
- Analysis and Design
- The Way Forward
Sometimes it is difficult to choose which session to go to, so far all the sessions I have gone to have been interesting and worthwhile.
More to come soon.
