Learning Project Management in English Nov 7th 2012

Globalinx delivered a special new seminar titled「Business Analysis – An Introduction」at the Hibiya Public Library on Nov 7th.
The instructor was Mark Beresford, PMP (Project Management Professional), CBAP (Certified Business Analysis Professional).
The participants learned how using Business Analysis methods before starting any project can contribute to project success, customer satisfaction, and also reduce costs and increase benefits. At the moment there is a perception that Business Analysis is only for IT projects, but it can add value to any kind of project.
According to the definition: “Business Analysis is the discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems.” This, more general definition, allows us to use BA methods in any situation where a customer has a need and the vendor is some kind of solution provider. Especially where the solution has to fit to the unique needs of the customer very closely.
