Happy Hour + Presentation


We are excited to partner with Nerdery for a social event on Tuesday, May 21st.  Nerdery will host a happy hour, along with a presentation on how Nerdery tailored the BABOK to fit their specific needs.  Food, beer and soda will be served at the event. 

Nerdery Brandon Bronkhorst, CCBA®, SAP® Certified Business Analyst practice lead at Nerdery, will present "No Surprises.  Using the BABOK as the North Star to Guide Your Business Analysis Practice".  

You cannot be everything to everybody.  Unfortunately, Business Analysis can mean many things to many people depending on the company, industry, or phase of the moon which makes it nothing to nobody (is that a double negative?).  You must focus your Practice in order to be effective.  Heck, even the BABOK says "Any set of practices must be tailored to the specific conditions under which business analysis is being performed".

Please join us on Tuesday, May 21, from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm, to find out how Nerdery tailored the BABOK to fit their specific needs.

Location: Nerdery 9555 James Ave S #245, Bloomington, MN 55431.  

Presentation in the Nerdatorium.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to grow, connect, and evolve with your fellow BAs. 

Space is limited.  Register Now!
