PMs are from Mars, BAs are from Venus

Cheryl Lee, PMP, PMI-PBA, CBAP

Learning Objective of Presentation:
To be able to define business analysis, identify the relationship between project management and business analysis, and understand the importance of this relationship for agile teams.

Description of Presentation:
Have you ever been on a project where it felt like your cohort was from a completely different planet? Although the perspectives and focus of BAs and PMs may be different, we need each other to deliver successful projects. According to PMI research, “successful projects require a high level of collaboration between both the project, program, or portfolio manager and business analyst. Risks are minimized, and project and product success rates improve when these critical roles are aligned and operate in partnership. When this alignment is missing, project performance, customer satisfaction, team morale, and the end product will be adversely impacted.”

Join us as we discuss the following:

  • What is business analysis?
  • What is the relationship between project management and business analysis?
  • Why is this relationship arguably more important for agile teams?

Venue: Virtual Event
Log in information (Zoom Link) would be provided to all registered participants before event starts

Door Prize:
Free 7.5 hour Introduction to BA course from Knowledge Adapters (valued at $199)

Using Microsoft Planner/Trello to Organize Yourself

Learning Objective of Presentation: Understand how to use tools like Microsoft Planner and Trello to organize your activities and to keep yourself organized.

Summary Description of Presentation:
We are confronted daily with myriads of activities and tasks, both routine and special. Our work, family, friends, and other parts of our lives bombard us with requests for our time, attention, and energy. Life pulls us in many different directions. As we have no doubt experienced, there are scads of gadgets, software, and apps that compete to manage our scheduling, activities, and pursuits. In this session, we will explore how to use Microsoft Planner and a similar tool from Trello.com to help us accomplish three goals:


1. To become more methodical in our organization.
2. To be more connected with the devices and tools that we may use.
3. To be more consistent in using these tools.


This session will be practical, with plenty of examples using these apps. You will also receive a valuable workbook and a handy cheat sheet to help you apply your new skills.

Venue: Virtual Event
Log in information (Zoom Link) would be provided to all registered participants before event starts

Door Prize: Yes-a workbook (in PDF format) with the major points and a “cheat-sheet” to help in implementation.
