Discussions from a TED talk - What is the Right Question for a BA to Ask

The presentation will look a TED talk from Malcolm Gladwell and see how this odd
topic of Spaghetti Sauce applies to the foundation of our work as BA’s. We will use 4
key points in a discussion-based format to look at the right question, and how data is
used by BA’s to understand the business problem for analysis. It will look at the issue
of the notion of the one right solution, and the different idea of multiple solutions based on the multiple client/customer needs. It will show how this thinking dramatically impacted IIBA itself during Ken’s time as CEO. Hopefully, it will help attendees see their own projects, products and client problems differently.

Our Guest Speaker: Ken Fulmer

President and CEO of the IIBA. Ken has been a long-time senior IT executive
with several major (Fortune 50) corporations holding roles as CTO and CIO. In

and the introduction of new Digital Marketing and a digital transformation of the
business. He also lead the development of several major publications and
certification for the business analysis profession including Cybersecurity, Digital
